Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
I perform arm lift and upper body lift surgeries together at my New York City practice to remove loose arm skin as well as loose skin on the upper back.
This patient had lost more than 160 pounds with bariatric surgery and asked for an arm lift operation. An "L" shaped scar was created from the axilla to the elbow.
The scar across her back was designed to be in her bra line so that it is covered when she is wearing a bathing suit.
