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

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

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

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

I had a TT with Dr. Jugenburg just over 6 months ago & I am so pleased with my results that I've decided to go back & get my arms done. I've hated them even before I had kids b/c even when I weighed 120 lbs. my arms always seemed big to me. It's genetic for sure b/c my mom has the same problem... READ MORE

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. He did a great job. He spent time with me whenever I have questions. His staff was caring and down to earth. My... READ MORE

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 felt very calm and at ease with him. I had my arms done along with tummy tuck and breast lift and... READ MORE

When I was 16 I lost 100 lbs. I gained back about 50 when I was 23. Within the past 2 years, I've slowly lost the 50 again and feel in the best shape of my life! I've been wanting an arm lift for about 10 years now but never managed to save up until now. My surgery is scheduled for May 19th and... READ MORE

I lost a lot of weight then had Lipo to my arms. Well the lipo just made them hang more but it made the skin thin we for a smaller scar. 1 year later I had an Arm lift to both arms. It took about 3 hours because I had more Lipo done. They are swollen now ( 7 days) but no hanging skin. I get... READ MORE

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. Little did I know that I would have all of this excess skin!!! I was so depressed as a result. My husband was not very supportive of my... READ MORE

Married and now with two kids I wanted arms that didn't swing when I wrote on the chalk board (teacher). I was overweight my first 35 years and then got the lap band. I have kept over 100 pounds off for nine years and finally wanted nice arms. Nine years ago I had a tummy tuck and breast... READ MORE

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.
