29 year old who weighed 375 pounds. She underwent a Lap Band and lost 150 pounds. After her massive weight loss, she developed a significant amount of excess skin and fat of her arms and torso. She underwent an arm lift and vertical torsoplasty. Please note the significant reduction in the size of her arms. Now, her arms are proportional to the rest of he body and there is no more "sagging" from excess arm skin. Please also note the reduction of back rolls.
