Recommendations for 30yr 300lbs woman wearing 2x shirt with 5x arms. 23" Biceps I am 5'11 300lbs, down from my highest weight of 416lbs. I lost the weight naturally and while the rest of my body is shrinking and shaping up the arm fat is like meat off the bone. Since losing 116lbs they've only gotten 3" smaller, leaving it impossible to find clothing that fit. I have a goal weight of 200-210lbs and workout 4-6x a week. I'm even studying to become a personal trainer to make this a permanent lifestyle change but extremely frustrated with sinking fat.

Does Lipo or Brachio make sense at my weight?
At this point, I would recommend further weight loss. If the surgery (brachioplasty) is performed now and the weight is lost is afterward, the surgery will have to be repeated.
