Arm Lift After Gastric Bypass
This 47 year-old female patient elected Brachioplasty surgery (an arm lift), to remove excess, hanging skin from the arms following a gastric bypass surgery for weight loss. Notice how the arm lift eliminated loose skin and reduced the size of the upper arms. The final result gave her smooth, tightened skin and a more toned and proportionate appearance.

The Arm Lift procedure, also known as Brachioplasty surgery, is often performed on post-bariatric patients. Significant weight loss sometimes leaves loose skin, hanging from the upper portion of the arms.
The procedure can be performed using IV anesthesia in Dr. Rodriguez's out patient surgery center. This bilateral procedure took approximately 4 hours in the Operating Room. The hanging skin is removed on the underside of the arms.
