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

I imagine he will also lipo my back as well, although I do not... 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.

After gastric bypass, I hated my upper arms - this was what motivated me to seek out plastics.
