Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
An arm lift, also called brachioplasty, is a procedure that removes loose or hanging skin from the underside of the upper arm. This skin can start to hang as a result of aging, extreme changes in weight, chronic sunlight exposure, or any condition resulting in a loss of skin elasticity. Patients can also undergo an arm lift when they have no excess skin but are unhappy because of the overall girth and thickness of the upper arm.
After all the hard work you put into successful weight loss, you may still be disappointed with your appearance. Unless you are very fortunate, your skin may have lost elasticity and may be loose, hanging or have stretch marks. In these cases, patients may seek body contouring procedures. Body contouring involves one or more surgical procedures that lift, tighten, and improve your appearance. These procedures result in a better-proportioned body with appropriate contours.

Additionally, adult men can develop Gynecomastia later in life. When someone has Gynecomastia it can lead to embarrassment and may result in loss of self-esteem and in social isolation.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed by Dr. Eric Schaffer. By using suction, liposuction removes fat from under the skin. Many patients elect for liposuction to remove excessive, stubborn fat from various parts of their body. Liposuction is minimally invasive and can assist in creating a natural looking and proportionate body shape. This is especially true when an area of your body proves to be immune to the effects of diet and exercise.
The Mommy Makeover procedure is comprised of several different cosmetic procedures that, when used in conjunction, produce stunning results. However, because every woman has different restorative needs, the combination of procedures will vary from one body to another. A Mommy Makeover is not a ‘cookie cutter’ procedure, but one that can be tailored to meet your individual needs. The procedures that may be involved in a mommy makeover include breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, and breast reduction.
Abdominoplasty is the tummy-tightening procedure commonly referred to as a tummy tuck. Tummy tuck surgery removes excess tissue that sags across the midsection and around the sides. The procedure may also improve or eliminate stretch marks that have resulted from weight fluctuation and pregnancy.
I had lost 95 pounds recently. My stomach had started getting in my way while I exercised on a daily basis. I knew someone that had used Dr. Schaffer a few years earlier. When she showed me her results I knew he was an artist. So I made an appointment and decided that day to have him perform my tummy tuck. I am so happy with my results. My stomach looks incredible. Thank you Dr. Schaffer! – B.
