I have a wonderful family an amazing husband who is supporting me 100% on my decision to make myself over. After being overweight for so long. 13 yrs ago I did a gastric bypass.. Best decision I've ever made in my life. I've loss so much weight and hate my arms and stomach. It's time to take... READ MORE

My brachioplasty looks phenomenal. I am throughly impressed with the results after day 1. I will be sharing before and after photos once my wounds heal. I lost approximately 150 lbs over 6 years and have kept the weight off. Unfortunately, I had some residual flesh that needed to go. I have had... READ MORE

After years of hating my arms, I decided to have an arm lift. I'm at day 2 and so far couldn't be happier. No pain, some swelling and bruising. My recovery has been so far extremely easy. My husband has had to help with my compression wraps and taking a Tshirt off and on. I've kept my arms... READ MORE

Having lost 150+ lbs, I have a lot of loose hanging skin and resistant fat. My arms bothered me the most. In fact I have been truly embarrassed by them for years. I had to buy clothing 2 sizes larger just to fit my arms. I reached my goal weight in March 2016 and I was looking for a good plastic... READ MORE

My journey has been long and arduous, and far from over in many ways. Surgicaly, the journey has some end in sight, with some compromises being left for the moment. As can be seen in my previous review for Dr. Pousti, I recently underwent an extended abdominoplasty which truly transformed me and... READ MORE

6 years ago I had the wt lost surgery. Lost approx 100 lbs. ROUND 1 ARM LIFT/lipo....Finally I am able to take care of the loose skin under my arms. Surgery went well. My PS did a posterior incision. Trust me it took me forever to figure out which incision I wanted. I'm happy with the... READ MORE

After losing over 100 pounds and a tummy tuck/breast lift in 2008 it was time to get rid of the bingo/bat wings. I was so tired of having to buy shirts that fit my 3x arms but not my L body. The doctor who did my TT and BL retired so I searched for a new one and found Dr. Ivan's Percec at the... READ MORE

As I said in the title, I'm pretty sure some people have smaller thighs than I do arms. After losing 140 pounds, gaining 40 back, and still hating my body, I've decided to spend this year working on it. I started with a Mommy Makeover in December. It's been six months, so I've now scheduled a... READ MORE

As others say, after spending a year following this website I feel like I should share to possibly help someone else. I've been hiding my arms for 30 years. In my case, they were ruined by the age of 12, this is what 30 year old stretch marks look like after weight loss. I struggle with... READ MORE

5'3 I20lbs. 46 yrs Week 1: Arms are sore, can't lift much, little arm mobility. Can't put arms over your head. Swollen and scars look bad. Week 2: Much better, can wash hair in shower easily now. Sore still, but gonna make it! Week 3: Arms starting to take shape! Swelling down, scar lines... READ MORE

After losing 100 lb through 3 full years of hard work (healthy eating and consistent exercise), I was more than ready to be "done" with the excess skin on my upper arms (when my weight rose, the size of my arms became disproportionately large). The worst part was sleeping on my back for weeks,... READ MORE

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 am happy with the procedure and I am waiting to go back to normal. I also had back liposuction. It has been a little over 3 weeks and I am... READ MORE

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 am SO excited to get this done. I am lucky enough to qualify for financing...it's my 30th birthday on April 10th and this is the perfect extravagant gift to myself lol extremely extravagant but I know it will be exactly what I need to feel better about myself. I was an obese child and... READ MORE
