Your Excess Skin Removal Options for a Toned Body (and Face!)

If you’re feeling self-conscious about your loose skin and want to do something about it, there are ways to cut that excess skin and achieve the toned body you’ve always wanted.

One option is excess skin removal surgery, also known as body contouring surgery. This set of procedures can help remove stubborn pockets of fat and loose skin, thus improving your body.

Which surgeries are we talking about? Check out the following procedures you can get to say goodbye to your excess skin.

Arm Lift

An arm lift, also called brachioplasty, can help improve the appearance of your arms. If you have loose skin or excess fat in your upper arms, an arm lift can help contour and tone the area.

The surgery involves an incision on the inside part of the upper arm, where excess skin and tissue are removed. Dr. Nick Masri’s patients have enjoyed more toned and attractive arms through this procedure.

And as a bonus, you’ll also have a smaller wardrobe since your arms will no longer be spilling out of your sleeves!

Breast Lift

Over time, the skin on the breasts can stretch and loosen, causing them to lose their shape and firmness. But a breast lift or mastopexy can restore your breasts’ youthful appearance.

The procedure includes reducing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. Plus, it improves the position of the nipples and areolas. This process is helpful if the nipples have begun to point downward.

Lower Body Lift

Dr. Nick Masri usually performs lower body lifts on patients who’ve undergone massive weight loss.

This procedure includes tightening and toning of buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. In some cases, a lower body lift may also involve liposuction to remove stubborn pockets of fat.

You’re a great candidate for a lower body lift if you…

  • Have loose skin in your lower body area
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Can commit to a healthy lifestyle


Surgeon Nick Masri MD suggests panniculectomies for functional reasons, such as improving hygiene and preventing skin irritation. But it can also help patients achieve a flatter, more toned stomach area.

Candidates for this surgery should be at or near their ideal body weight. And usually, the recovery time is around four to six weeks.

Thigh Lift

For many, the thighs are one of the first places with unwanted fat and cellulite. And achieving a toned, smooth look can be difficult even with diet and exercise.

So, most patients of Dr. Nidal Masri go for this procedure to tone and tighten their thighs. This surgery removes excess skin and fat from the inner or outer thighs.

Candidates for this procedure should have good skin elasticity and be physically fit.

Bonus: Facelift

What’s the use of a toned body if you have sagging skin on your face? But don’t worry – you can get a facelift to solve that problem!

According to Dr. Nidal Masri, a facelift can help you…

  • Improve the appearance of your facial skin
  • Tighten the skin and smooth out wrinkles, giving the face a more youthful appearance
  • Improve the appearance of your neck and jawline
  • Enhance the overall contour of your face
If you are considering any of these procedures, consult an experienced and double board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Nick Masri.
