I had my surgery done May 7, 2016. The doctor did lipo and then cut the loose skin. I was always suffering with my arms because no blouse would ever fit.

I'm going back to Dr. Kortesis on 3/10/16 for my final consult! We will be discussing my final phase of body contouring after major weight loss, which will be an arm lift w/lipo, thigh lift with lipo, and breast lift with implants. I imagine he will also lipo my back as well, although I do not... READ MORE

I've been wanting an arm lift for a really long time. I've been very fearful of the dreaded armlift scars. Unlike a tummy tuck or butt lift, you can't hide the scars & what's the point of getting an arm lift if you have to wear long sleeves anyway if you have to hide the scars. But, I... READ MORE

I had 3 consultations before walking in to Dr. Kolder's office. I was pretty disillusioned before meeting Dr. Kolder. He was the warmest, most informative surgeon I had met. I knew immediately he was the one to do my arms. He did not give me unrealistic expectations nor did he try to sell me... READ MORE

I have always been overweight, at one point I lost 35 kilos but over time I gained 10 back, for whatever reason I carried a lot of weight in my arms and due to poor elasticity in my skin I ended up with the most horrible "tuck shop" arms. I cannot put into words how these arms were restricting... READ MORE

Been on a journey for a while and am ready to have an arm lift and possible breast augmentation. Just had my second consult and this one was with Dr. Ellen Janetzske, and all I can say is I absolutely love her. She is wonderful, caring and the list goes on and on. Her staff is extremely nice...

Dr. Khan explained to me all options, non-invasive and otherwise, to improve the appearance of my arms. I also was interested in adding volume to my face -- volume lost due to age. I was excited when she suggested that she could use my own fat as a filler for my face instead of some other... READ MORE

I tell this story...not because it is MY story, but because it is a story worth telling! Imagine a 200 lb 12 year old with arms etc stretched out of shape for the rest of your life (other areas too but this is about my arms). Imagine your daughter's wedding in the near future and you need a... READ MORE

I was an obese child and... READ MORE

I apologise in advance for any spelling mistakes as I am writing this review at 4.30 in the morning and can't sleep anywhere without my husband spooning up behind me.

Always hated the appearance of my arms, never had the confidence to have the procedure done. upon recommendation met with Dr Oelbrandt who was very understanding and explained this operation in depth. The booking of transport and the overnight accommodation was easy. The whole experience was... READ MORE

After gastric bypass, I hated my upper arms - this was what motivated me to seek out plastics. After having a couple others (lipo on my nec, because I could afford it immediately), panniculectomy (insurance approved), I finally got back to my arch-nemesis' - batwings. Saved up, made a plan,...
