Hello ‘Wondering’, thank you for the question.

The skin should (to a point) ‘shrink’ as you lose the weight. To try and increase the collagen and elastin fibres in the skin I would consider using a glycolic acid moisturizer such as NeoStrata High Potency Body Lotion or Ultra Smoothing Body Lotion. After this limit is reached one may have to consider the following:

Skin Tightening Technologies: Syneron Refirme or Velashape, Thermage, Titan or surgery.
