57 year old female weighed 300 pounds. She underwent RNY and lost 128 pounds. After her weight loss, she did not like the excess skin and fat of her upper arms. She disliked the shape of her arms and felt that her arms "still made her look fat”. She underwent an arm lift and vertical torsoplasty. Please note the significant improvement of her arm shape and reduction in back rolls. Her arms are now smaller, more defined, proportioned, sculptured, and more feminine.
