Inner and outer thighs can be somewhat smoothed in appearance with a thigh lift to remove extra skin. The incision is made near the groin and lifting is done on the inner thigh only.  Liposuction of inner and outer thighs and knees reduces circumference.

Arm Lift

Also called a Brachioplasty removes the hanging skin of the upper arm after weight loss. The incision is made vertically from underarm to above the elbow.



Although these procedures are detailed for those with massive weight loss, any of the above procedures may be performed on individuals simply looking to tighten up aging or hereditary body features.

If you have lost a great deal of weight and are seeking improvement of any of these areas, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Gilbert Lee of Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa in San Diego. He will tailor your procedures to suit your post-weight loss appearance.
