The Athenix Difference

our cosmetic & plastic surgery videos

Erica Lugo is a wife, mother, business owner, entrepreneur, cancer survivor, and fitness advocate, but you’ll most likely recognize her from being a coach on the Biggest Loser!

After a dramatic transformation of her own, she decided to come to Athenix Body Sculpting Institute to have her loose skin removed.

“I’ve worked really hard to lose 160 lbs. I’m proud of the muscle I’ve built and I’m more proud that I’ve been able to keep the weight off for 5 years [but] loose skin has been apart of my journey.”

“I’ve always been okay with [my loose skin]. It’s been my battle scar, but the more I begin to build muscle and the leaner I get the more loose skin builds up. No amount of exercise or nutrition will help the loose skin pockets on my hips and stomach.”

“Only during the lockdown when I started running and doing a ton of body weight exercises did the loose skin start becoming bothersome. My skin would rub against skin and cause rashes. My long runs were no longer enjoyable after having to constantly rub cream on my rashes. After realizing it was starting to interfere with me and my fitness goals, did I say… ‘it’s got to go!’ [Now], I’m loving the changes I’m seeing in my body. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner!”

“Athenix, THANK you for simply being the organization you are. You’ve given me exactly what I’ve always wanted. A new start, a new found confidence and care that a person could only dream of!”

Access Hollywood catches up with Dr. Gavin Dry to discuss Erica Lugo’s loose skin removal surgery after losing 150 pounds. Dr. Gavin Dry shares, “Erica’s an amazing individual. She’s highly motivated, highly dedicated. She did fantastic… the most difficult thing was to keep her down. She wants to be constantly on the go and constantly moving.” Erica had nearly 9 pounds of skin removed and says, “It’s very liberating… I don’t have any loose skin to tuck and hide. I’m really excited… to go to Miami at the end of the month and wear bikinis for the first time and spend that time with my husband.”
