Dr Victor Gutierrez Made my Arms Look Super Sexy!!!!! - Tijuana, Mexico

My arms were in bad shape. No matter how much time...

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 pictures.

Straight and Beautiful.

My incisions are so straight, thin and well hidden. WOW! I am in disbelief at how lovely formed my arms are this soon after surgery.


It is so unfair to go into stores, see a nice shirt or a beautiful blouse you want, only to find that you can not wear it because your arms are too big. Flustrating!!!
Finally, that is a thing is the past.
I started wearing my small beige arm compression garment with the cutiest lace at the elbows yesterday that Dr Victor Gutierrez put on me yesterday. It is snug and comfortable. I have very mimium swelling, and my arms do not hurt at all. In fact, I have to consciously remember not to use them, and instead use my core muscles to raise up or lower myself down. I am sure I will be picture ready soon, but right now I am taped up with a beautiful arm compression garment on, so I think I need a little more time before I can post pictures. Smile.

Comfortable arm position

The hardest part so far about my arm lift surgery is not knowing how to position my arms while I am laying in bed recovering. I try laying them straight. I try bending them at the elbows. I try laying them on top of pillows. I try laying them under pillows. I try laying them above my head. I try resting them on my stomach. Is there such a thing as 'restless arm syndrome?' (Smile) As they heal, it is getting easier to get into a comfortable position an rest, without putting pressure on them. I do everything I can not to use them. No stretching. No picking up objects heavier than my toothbrush and a spoon. No doing nothing!!! Well, I do eat, like I am doing now. Let me finish my oatmeal and fruit. I just wanted to let everyone know I am well and healing wonderfully.

Beautiful arms photos in just 13 days after surgery

My arms are so sexy and beautiful. I would have never dreamed in a million years that my arms would ever be sexy again, and I would be able to show off my muscles that I have worked so hard for over the past few years. As most if us, I was worried about the scar and scar placement, but that was before I knew my plastic surgeon. After my surgery with him last year, I knew I did not have to worry about my arm lift, because Dr Victor Gutierrez really is the BEST,

My skin was hanging from my elbow to my arm pit.

Still looking great!

My arms are healing wonderfully. It is amazing how well my scars are healing. I am astounded with my results.

Close-up Scar Photos of After My Arm Lift Surgery

I think the arm lift surgery is one that is the most needed, but it is the most feared due to the visibility of the scar. I certainly felt that way about having a scar going all the way down my arm. But what good was it to get my total body transformed and leave hanging skin on my arms. I knew eventually I was going to have to have surgery, but coming to terms with knowing I was going to have the visible scars was something totally different for me. I know a lot of other women feel the same way. What made me go ahead and have the arm surgery? For me, I had to put complete faith and trust in the fact that I have the best plastic surgeon and that he would make it possible for me to have beautiful arms just as he has transformed the rest of my body perfectly. I look at my arms now and know that my scar will not be there one day because I chose Dr. Victor Gutierrez as my plastic surgeon. He has truly made it possible for me to say "I LOVE My Arms."

Have Your Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty) From a Plastic Surgeon that is also a Hand/Arm Specialist ONLY!!!

I did not do any deep research, read many reviews, or look at many before and after photos before my arm lift surgery, because I am sure it would have totally freaked me out. Why? The satisfaction rating for arm lift surgery is not high enough because women are not getting satisfactory results due to poor surgical techniques and inexperience from doctors that are not fully educated about a persons arms and with Brachioplasty. These plastic surgeons go ahead and do the surgery anyway because it looks easy and they figure they are just working with fat and skin removal, so what could possible go wrong. However, our arms are fascinating as well as complicated and should not be taken for granted by us allowing a less than experienced surgeon with no real knowledge about arms to perform our Brachioplasty.

Dr Victor Gutierrez my plastic surgeon also specializes as a Hand Surgeon, which includes operating on the hands and arms due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome relieving painful nerves and other awful symptoms which I sometimes experience myself due to repetitive use of my hands and arms. (Think about the amount of surgical experience he has working on arms!) Knowing this information, I was even more confident of his deep profound study and intimate knowledge about arms, and not just about excess skin removal. Our arms are extraordinary and certain places inside and out need to be handled with caution and extreme care, otherwise there can be problems after surgery or in the future. Choosing a plastic surgeon for our arms is extremely important! Choose a plastic surgeon wisely, not just for immediate beautiful cosmetic results like mine, but for life long healthy arms.

Dr. Victor Gutierrez

He is the BEST plastic surgeon west of the Atlantic Ocean and east of the Pacific Ocean. You can look everywhere, but if you want outstanding results, please look no farther.

You do look fabulous and your great results got my attention. I am considering a few upper body procedures and although my dentist (whom I adore) is in Tijuana, I'm a bit leery about cosmetic surgery in Mexico. Living in San Diego has priced me out of the cosmetic surgery market. (You can only imagine the "La Jolla" prices.) I'm wondering, out of the 100's of Dr's you researched, what was it about Dr Gutierrez (Uribe?) that made you choose him. Did you travel to see him, and any others, for a consultation?

I too am very unhappy and embarrassed of my sagging arms. I have not been able to wear sleeveless blouses for over 5 yrs now and that breaks my heart. My is due to genetics....I see my arms turning into my mothers every time I look in the mirror. Lisa your arms look fabulous but I am a bit afraid to go to Mexico. I have been searching for a good PS for over a year now and seem to find pros and cons on all of them. :-( Is there anyone else out there that has had a brachioplasty that is happy with the results and would care sharing there doctors name?? I will travel out of my state, I live in the Midwest also and have not found ANYONE that has rave reviews.

JD Core you asked, What made me choose Dr Victor Gutierrez? What made him special out of all of the others? It was that one long phone conversation with which he took out time, and he patiently explained things to me. I could sense he loved his work. I could hear in his voice that he genuinely cared. No other doctor had seen the importance to do this. He heard in my voice that I was afraid and he patiently reassured me. He was fair, gentle and kind. He was mostly concerned about my health. I never got that from any of the other offices that I has contacted. I felt like the many, many offices that I contacted, they were too busy to take out a little time, just answer a few questions that I had, or never contacted me back. I am a health nut. I love straight lines and perfect symmetry. His incisions lines were straight and breasts before and after pictures were symetrical. Belly buttons were centered perfectly. Health was his top priority. I had found my doctor! Each person criteria in choosing a PS is going to be different and I am happy I kept searching until I found him. Although I was not able to travel for a face to to face consultation to TJ because of distance, you a fortunate to live so close.

I know how you feel. It is embarrassing, because I have had several of those moments myself where people were staring at my arms move. I refused to wear sleeveless clothes. For my arm lift surgery, I traveled alone and I must say my short visit to Tijuana, Mexico was beautiful as well as my surgical results. Some people feel better traveling with a companion, but either way, because it is a tourist destination, it is a fun place to be. Although I was not there on vacation or as a tourist, I was so well taken care of and pampered, I felt like I was on one, and I did not want to leave.

I couldn't have said it better. Good for you! You're one of the lucky ones,as i have read some horror stories on Brachioplasty. This is a very difficult procedure and needs precision. I am Happy for you. :) Not all doctor's in Mexico are bad. Here's the proof!!!!! Pics worth a thousand words. I will just say 1 FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OKAY 2. HERMOSA

Thank you for saying that!!! It is definitely a difficult procedure that requires exact precision as you have stated. Plastic surgeons from everywhere are having difficulty with this procedure. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful plastic surgeon. (Big Smile)

It is definitely hard to find a good ps. I am sure you will love them even more in 6 months. I am gonna be 5 weeks on Wednesday,but it feels like forever. lol I am just impatient.

I definitely know what you mean. It is very hard to find a very good skilled plastic surgeon. It is even harder to change plastic surgeons even after you find out the one you chose was not a good one. I can not wait to be able to fully use my arms again. Right now I am still very careful, but in 6 months, WOW, like you I can not wait!

The waiting game is so frustrating but the good thing is we are healing properly. ;)

When I am fully healed, it will be close to winter time :-/ I am so cold natured that I stay covered up all of the time in tons of clothes. Nevertheless, I still feel anxious to show off these arms.
