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

Terrible mistake picking this physician. I have had nothing but problems from day one. Terrible scaring, uneven liposuction, extensive nerve damage to left arm, "dog ear" scarring. I suffer from pain every single day. My liposuction is completely uneven and looks terrible. A lot of sagging... READ MORE

I am scheduled for Abdominplasty w/ standard liposuction and bilateral Brachioplasty (arm lift). After losing over 150 pounds over the last 7 years following lap band surgery I am in desperate need of the skin removal surgery. I scheduled this surgery six months ago to align with my slow...

Motivation: I had lost so much weight and my arms were detracting from all my hard work and making me look bigger than I was. Pros: My arms look amazing. Now instead of buying two shirts and having my mom make bigger sleeves for the size medium shirt, I now just buy ONE! Cons: It is painful as... READ MORE

After losing 75 pounds, I was left with sagging pouches of skin underneath my armpits, and flapping skin under my triceps, despite lifting weights and working out, nothing was getting rid of it. It wasn't bad enough to require a complete arm life that leaves a scar all the way down the arm, so... READ MORE

I've struggled with my weight my whole life. Having lost a significant amount of weight has left my arms with a huge amount of skin that literally got in the way when using my arms. Both Dr Baumholtz and Carissa (clinical coordinator) were SO encouraging. I'm so glad I did this! Thank you both... READ MORE

I did weightwatchers and lost 72 pounds in 2007-08, gained it all back and lost it again on WW in 2013. Now that I'm over 50, my skin doesn't seem to have any elasticity left and I am left with a lot of sagging skin. I am 5' 6" and weigh 132 pounds. I've tried to lose more weight, but I can't...

I've read so many reviews on RealSelf which ultimately led to me wanting to write one of my own. Went for a consult with a PS in my area to discuss breast reduction, but since my arms have long been a concern of mine, decided to have an arm lift consult as well. One thing the ps asked was,...

I initially got yily to do my arm lift. And it was not a good job. I went back and let Cabral fix it and he did excellent.  I initially got procedure done with yily. She left a lot of skin behind. She said she would do it over for free but I was afraid to let her cut me again and not do it... READ MORE

See comments below. Depressing over three years spending $10000 for results worse than when I started by a cold lack of care. Just to have been told " sorry" could have made a difference. Staff not helpful - I asked about compression garments and they had none and none to recommend. There I... READ MORE

I must apologize for not posting this while it was happening in September. I included it with my face lift review, but it didn't occur to me to make a separate review until I saw one today. Thought I'd better do a full review just on the arms to make it easy for those looking at the procedure... READ MORE

I've always been a slender build, small hips, legs and never weighing not much more than 112lbs and standing only 5'2'. However, I've inherited my mothers heavy arms...ugh! Seven years ago, I researched possible liposuction to reduce the excess fat and the PS that I visited at that time said I... READ MORE

I was tired of my arms shaking and cld not wear short or sleeveless tops. tHis produce was not painful and my recovery was minimal. lIving in Florida this makes it very difficult. To wear only tops with sleeves, now I can wear whatever I want and receive many compliments on how great my arms... READ MORE

After some research on Plastic Surgeons, I decided to go with Dr. Bajaj. I am more comfortable with a female plastic surgeon and when I read that she is also an artist I knew she was perfect for me, because I wanted someone who has an artistic eye. Surgery took about 3 hours and I woke up with... READ MORE

I am so happy and pleased with my procedure. My only regret is not doing it sooner! I was tired of wearing long sleeves in summer because of my arms, so I went to Dr. Kenneth Godwin from Langhorne, PA. He explained the whole procedure to me and it wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be. I... READ MORE

I was a morbid obese child, but in my teenage years lost over 60 kg dieting and exercising. Took me many years but in spite of all the efforts, exercises, non invasive procedures and miracle creams I realised the shagging skin will stay forever so here am I, waiting for surgery! English is not... READ MORE

I am 61 yo and 130 lbs, 5'3" tall. No matter how much I lifted weights and worked out with my trainer, the upper arms sagged. I had had enough! Having had a previous VERY positive experience with Dr Izquierdo, as had my daughter, I decided to go for the brachioplasty. The results are PHENOMENAL.... READ MORE
