In addition to featuring comprehensive discussions on how to achieve a significant weight loss and the benefits of body contouring, the third volume of the Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology series takes on the topic of loose skin. Some people may be embarrassed by loose skin, and while many people do not experience significant weight loss due to surgical procedures, loose skin is not uncommon. Dr. Sadick discusses ways of tightening loose skin through the use of microdermabrasion, laser treatments, massage therapy, and body contouring procedures such as liposuction. The techniques used for treating loose skin are similar to those used for treating stretch marks, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

The fourth volume of the Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology series, entitled Procedures in Plastic Surgery: Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeons Discusses Techniques in Body Contouring, addresses the topic of facelift surgery. While most cosmetic surgeons do not perform face lifts, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), or ear plastic surgeries, there are some who offer these services. Specifically, the book discusses procedures used to treat drooping eyelids, excessive neck skin, underperforming breasts, and issues with the nose and ears.
