- Arm Lift
ARM LIFT CASE
A 35-year old mother of 3 presented in our Fort Lauderdale plastic surgery office requesting “a mommy makeover”. She lost 40 lbs. after her last pregnancy 2 years ago.
After extensive evaluation in our cosmetic surgery center in Fort Lauderdale we made a plan to proceed with mommy makeover surgery in stages. The first stage, based on her own priorities, was improvement of the breast and arms. Body contouring of the abdomen and thighs was planned in the second stage.
Surgery was performed in general anesthesia in our office based surgery center, AAAA certified; anesthesia was supervised by a board certified anesthesiologist. Surgery included arm lift and breast reduction-lift.

A back view of the same patient before arm and breast surgery (left) and after arm-lift surgery as a part of “mommy makeover surgery” (right). One can appreciate improvement in the shape of the arms as well as the fact that scar is well-hidden in the inner arm from the back view.
