his 34 year old patient presented to Dr. Siamak Agha for Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss. The patient was unhappy with the significant skin and tissue laxity of her arms and lower body. The patient had lost about 100 pounds of weight through diet and exercise and was ready to remove all of her excess skin.

To address the patient’s arms, Dr. Agha performed an Arm Lift, also known as a L-Brachiopalsty. He began the procedure by performing liposuction on each of the patient’s arms to remove the small amount of remaining fat. Then, he cut from the patient’s elbow up her inner arm and down into her armpit. Through this incision, he removed the excess skin across the patient’s upper arm and lifted the armpits.  He also placed the patient’s incision in the shadow in between the front and back of her arms.
