Do you have back rolls from excess skin after weight loss? Do you avoid fitted shirts, swimsuits, or any other clothing that will reveal the excess fat and skin on your back? Removal of this excess is possible with a back lift, also known as an upper body lift or bra line back lift.

Sagging Pubic Area

After a significant amount of weight loss, a lot of obvious body parts may start sagging - your neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks may all fall victim to gravity. But one area you may not pay much attention to or may not realize that can be improved in appearance is your pubic area. This is also known as your mons pubis or pubic mound, and specifically is the area covered by your pubic hair. This area can sag after weight loss and become unsightly. With the trend for zero to less pubic hair becoming commonplace, a saggy mons pubis becomes even more obvious.

Have you dropped some significant pounds and pushups, triceps dips, and planks are not giving you those sculpted Michelle Obama arms? Can you feel the muscle underneath, but it's hidden by your excess skin? Once you've leaned down to a reasonable weight for your height, excess arm skin may be hiding your hard-earned muscles. This is where you may have to rely on the assistance of someone other than a personal trainer.
