25 year old female weighed 357 pounds. She underwent RNY and lost 130 pounds. After her weight loss, she did not like the excess skin and fat of her upper arms. She disliked her "bat wings". She complained she could not find clothing that fit. She underwent separately an arm lift, vertical and horizontal torsoplasty, and breast augmentation with lift . Please note the significant reduction in the size of her arms. Now, her arms are smaller, her breast firm and returned to "normal" position. Please note the improvement in her upper back.
