An arm lift 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.

I was grossly overweight for most of my life In 2010 I decided to make lifestyle changes to be healthier. I lost 80lbs over 2 years.

I've wanted this surgery since 2006 with Dr. Capella and I am finally realizing my dream.

He is very well known for his arm lifts, and has the... READ MORE

I had a weight loss of 90 pounds when I had my arms done. I wear sleeveless tops all the time and hated how my saggy arms looked! Just bending obverse my skin on my arms would wrinkle!

I have been wanting this for years, and I'm finally doing it. I'm using the same surgeon who did my (fantastic!) tummy tuck last July. I'm still very nervous because I want the results to be great.

I wish I had a before pic but I've included the after photo. I am 2 weeks post op and I'm already amazed at my results. I've not even had any real discomfort (I'm very surprised).

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,...

After being obese my entire adult life ( and most of my childhood), I underwent Bariatric surgery in Nov 2014 and it was an amazing success.

Over the last few years, I steadily lost about 130lbs.
