Arm lift, or brachioplasty, tightens up loose or sagging skin under the upper arms. Excess fat might also be removed, sometimes via liposuction.

I am so nervous about this arm lift. There don't seem to be any doctors that specialize in cosmetic surgery for extra skin after weight loss. Compared to breast augmentation, I think the brachioplasty seems a simple surgery for a PS to perform. My arms look great when they are at my side but... READ MORE

I'm delighted with the work of Dr. Rashi Rosenstock. It's 3 weeks post-op now and one week since I left the recovery center (Las Cumbres) and everything seems to be on track for slimmed, smooth upper arms. I was pleased with every encounter I had with Dr. Rosenstock. He is skillful and kind. I... READ MORE

I had the sleeve gastrectomy in 2013 and lost ~100+ pounds. I was left with what I call "bingo arms", and was slightly embarrassed by them. More just wanted them gone, and tried to look at the bright side. They weren't as large as some arms I'd seen after weight-loss surgery, and I didn't "need"... READ MORE

After arranging for a Tummy Tuck, I went black to my plastic surgeon to chat about my saggy arms. I told him that I spend a lot of time outsid, swimming, doing yard work,, and enjoying the Florida weather. He suggested a short incision brachioplasty, and I asked to do it at the same time I did...

I have had consultations with 4 or 5 different plastic surgeons in NJ and they all suggested Brachioplasty for my arms. I will be having Brachioplasty and flank/abdominal liposuction done December 10th with Dr. Tushar Patel. I felt comfortable with him and he came highly recommended by my... READ MORE

My arms have been bad since college, yo-yo dieting/weight gain didn't help but Mom has the same problem. After I lost 65lbs, went from a 22Womens to a 14-16Misses in my clothes but was frustrated that my hard work in body shaping did nothing for the arms. I finally found a wonderful PS who... READ MORE

It has been a little over 2 weeks and while my arms are still swollen and sore, I can already tell a difference. The scarring seems as though it will be minimal. This was an outpatient procedure, though it took around 3 or 4 hours of surgery time. I developed constipation from the narcotics... READ MORE

I am so impressed and satisfied with this surgery, I had surgeries before and in all honesty I can say it has been the best, in the recovery room i was amazed, no pain, and so it was throughout my stay in the hospital, the nurse was amazing and I had a special staff just to take car of myself...

I am having three procedures I want to post in each category. This arm lift will be done with my tummy tuck. I will post photos closer to me surgery date. I am losing more weight and want the pictures to be current. I had listed all three together but I know that I read in each section Arm Lift,... READ MORE

Tomorrow is the big day. I have lost 140ish pounds from my highest weight and it is time for skin removal. I am 5'8" and fluctuate between 142 at my lowest to 150 (this morning). Dr. Erdmann at Duke University is doing the surgeon. He has encouraged me to do these three procedures all at once... READ MORE

I have always hated my arms. They are too big for my body. After I increased the size of my breasts they were a little less distracting, but that was 15 years ago. Now they have excess skin and and a bit saggy as well as too big for me. I have been self conscious for some time. Along with the... READ MORE

Since my teenage years, I have always struggled with arm fat. Not being able to wear certain long sleeves shirts not only because of the size of my arms but also because I was born with Erbs Palsy (making my left arm smaller than my right arm). After losing 50 pounds, my right arm was still... READ MORE

I am 4 ½ years out from my Gastric Bypass (RNY), currently I am prepping for my cosmetic Plastic Surgery!!! I have a 100lb weight loss. I analyzed my the problem areas that bothered me the most on my body. 1. Belly/muffin top/lap apron. Whatever you call it, if I purchase pants to fit the... READ MORE

This is a bit of an x-post, as my "main review" is in the body lift section. I have lost ~200 lbs and was left with lots of extra skin. The trick with MWL folks is the extended arm lift part which takes the skin excision into the armpit and really onto the back section to correct some of the... READ MORE

Hi there :) I'm in Australia...I know most of you are from the U.S...but I wanted to post here as there are a lot of Aussies out there who may be in a similar situation as mine...and who may need a reference point to base their decision. I've just posted some before pics for right now...but I... READ MORE

You really went over and above for me and I am grateful No more fat arms and no more bras I had... READ MORE

After losing 100 lbs I found that not only were my arms sagging but they were wrinkled so bad I looked 100 years old. One week after my surgery I was home watching a morning news show when they announced athat the newest craze in plastic surgery was having a arm lift and that the procedure was... READ MORE

After I was able to loose 80 pounds on my own I was stuck. I had Gastric Sleeve Surgery and lost the rest of my weight. Needless to say I was left with a lot of excess skin. The skin that bothered me the most was my arms and neck. The most visible. I am very pleased with my decision to have... READ MORE

I don't know if I would do these surgeries at the same time again! I am 7 days PO and honestly having more pain and issues with arm lift than extensive anchor TT. My PS had me in ace bandages on both arms to my finger tips. The wrap job was pretty bad on the hands and I couldn't even hold a... READ MORE

My arms were in bad shape. No matter how much time I spent in the gym lifting weights, doing pull-ups, push-ups, and everything else I could think of for a few years, my arms still had so much hanging extra skin, that I had to have a arm lift. I will be sure to update with before and after... READ MORE
