Albuquerque Brachioplasty 30008
Note: This woman lost 50 pounds after a gastric banding procedure. She has very well-localized excess skin and fat on her upper inner arms. Liposuction would not be sufficient as the skin would not shrink back enough. Her brachioplasty (arm lift) provided the needed skin reduction to give the desired contour.

Arm Lift / Brachioplasty 30041
Note: This woman lost significant weight through diet and exercise, and had concerns regarding her arms afterward. Following her weight loss, she had some excess skin in the region of the arms, and also some residual fatty deposits. This patient underwent a combined procedure including liposuction of the excess fatty deposits of the arms at the same time as removing the excess arm skin.
The final scar goes from armpit to elbow and is designed to be at the lower border of the arm to decrease visibility. A maturing arm lift scar can take months to years to fade. The patient can now wear fitting clothing as feels more confident after her arm lift operation.
