An arm lift (also known as brachioplasty) tightens loose skin under the arm that creates what many call a "bat wing" appearance. It's frequently performed on those who have sagging skin due to massive loss weight or natural aging. The procedure is often performed in conjunction with liposuction to get rid of excess fat.

Awesome Arm Lift (Beautiful Brachioplasty) - Perth, AU

As a 62 year old teacher I was very conscious of my flabby arms. Even under a sleeve you could still see them jiggle. I had lost a considerable amount of weight but there was still bulk in my arms so clothes didn't fit properly. I was referred to Dr Guy Watts who performed the procedure for me.... READ MORE

Beware!! Do Your Research Before Just Listening to What Dr Zinsser Tells You - Richmond, VA

I'm so disappointed with the entire process. I had such high hopes after my consultation. Let me start by saying I do NOT have unreal expectations.

It's been six months, so I've now scheduled a... READ MORE

Arm Lift is So Worth It! - Delafield, WI

Finally Did It! - San Antonio, TX

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

44 Year Old Woman, 120 Pound Weight Loss, Had Huge Bags Under Arms - Camarillo, CA

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.
