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 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!

I have been overweight my whole life. I lost 115 pounds and so decided to have an arm lift. I consulted with 2 doctors in Austin, TX. Both seemed good but I decided on Steve Holzman.

I am so pleased with my arm lift by Dr Eric Weiss. He was the first surgeon I contacted because he came highly recommend by friends. When I met him and his staff I knew he was the surgeon for me.

I began my weight loss journey in 2011 when I weighed highest weight of 200lbs. I totally changed my life. I ate healthier and made time to exercise daily.

I refuse to say that I went on a weight loss journey. So, in 2011 I began eating normally and exercising. In the spring of 2014, I hit my goal weight and hated my arms. I worked out more and harder and the skin/flab were still there. I waited one year to see if a miracle would happen and it... READ MORE

I'm 46 yrs old and had VSG in Mexico with Dr. Illan on 8/31/13. I was 326lbs and now am sitting at 181lbs. My arms have always been the worst part of my body in my opinion.
