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

Dr. Setty performed my brachioplasty in December 2015. I'm so pleased with my new arms and so glad I chose him! He's very patient, kind and easy to talk to. He never minded spending the time to answer my questions. Everyone in his office has been great, too. Erica at the front desk always has a... READ MORE

I am having three procedures I want to post in each category. This arm lift will be done with my tummy tuck. I will post photos closer to me surgery date. I am losing more weight and want the pictures to be current. I had listed all three together but I know that I read in each section Arm Lift,... READ MORE

Surgery is less than a week away. I've lost around 50 pounds and counting and although my arms got 'smaller' they just deflated... still around 16 inches and they look FUNKY. I've come to terms with the fact that I need this surgery for loose skin and people are going to see my scars. I've... READ MORE

My arms have never been in proportion to my body. As i aged66 now they became worse and so jiggly. I was so afraid of the scar. It held me back but 2years ago I had to have a hip replacement and mt scar is barely noticible. I visited 3 docs, trust me on this, you need to be comfortable with... READ MORE

I searched for a plastic surgeon for months. I'm so glad I found Dr. Katzen!! I was so excited yet apprehensive about the arm lift because I've seen some horrible results online. The placement of the scar is PERFECT the shape of my arms too. Take a look at my pictures, the results speak for... READ MORE

Let me start by saying I love Dr Griffin!!! I lost over 90 lbs within a year and had gone through roller coaster weight loss through the years. I'm 49 and not getting any younger and my arms were definitely showing my multiple journeys. I spent several months looking at all f my options as well... READ MORE

I wish I had written this review sooner. I first want to say, I am happy with the results, and I am glad I did it. I am getting ready to have the next stage, a fleur de lis tummy tuck, in January 20th. I have decided to go with a different surgeon, as I did not seem to mesh well with my previous... READ MORE

I am a 50 year old mother of four, who had a TT and breast lift in 2014 Aug. Now I am traveling back to DR to have my arms, legs, back and abs Lipo. Dr. Sabala worked magic before and now he is going to do it again. Got everything pack and ready to go okay, it's getting close to the day a... READ MORE

Had arm laxity my whole life. Gained and lost weight and they were horrible. I HATED THE THOUGHT AND SIGHT of them. Finally got up the nerve to get them addressed. My stats are: cw:180 5'8 I cannot tell you how much I have loathed these in the past. See before and after pics below. Please be... READ MORE

I'm a 46 year old mother of two children ages 24 and 16. I have struggled with my weight since my son was born 24 years ago. Through healthy eating and regular boot camp workouts at my gym, I have managed to lose 60 pounds. I had a tummy tuck done in 2012 and have been thrilled with the results.... READ MORE

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

Dr. Vijay is the best doctor ever and his staff is outstanding. I am so very pleased with the results! He is a true artist and takes every step to give the very best results. Just love his caring nature, makes the patient his priority, less bruising to the body than most doctors and follows up... READ MORE

It is time for the next phase of my journey… After losing close to 145lbs was just the beginning of the journey… and now, it is time for the next phase… For as long as I remember, I have been unhappy with my body. As an adolescent, I was too out of shape keep up with the other kids in gym c... READ MORE

Dr Heller is the most caring and professional surgeon ive had the pleasure to meet He is caring and kind Dr Heller puts you at ease and answers all your questions thoroughly The staff treated me like family My arms never looked so fabulous I now have the confidence to wear short sleeve shirts...

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

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 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
