Skin: As we get older the skin loses it's elasticity(what keeps the skin tight). When we have a large weight loss, the skin may not be able to contract back to it's original state. If it's on the forearm, may consider some ultrasound/laser procedures for skin tightening. The other option is surgery which will leave a large and obvious scar.
