When there is too much flaccidity or flabbiness in the arms or inner thighs, it may be necessary to remove skin and fat tissue to achieve a more tense and defined result.

An Arm Lift and Tight lift  can restore an attractive contour to the arms and thighs,  improving self-confidence and ensuring a better fit when it comes to swimwear, eveningwear and everyday clothing.

Whether the excess arm and thigh flabbiness is a result of the natural aging process, or a byproduct of recent weight loss, it can be frustrating to deal with the unsightly fat tissue and skin  that hangs down from the upper arms and/or inner thighs, especially when it does not respond to dieting and exercise. Performed by an experienced,  qualified and skilled plastic surgeon such as Dr. Victor Astudillo, this surgical procedures may present the ideal solution for your needs.


Fluctuations in weight, aging, and even hereditary factors can cause flaccidity in your arms.

Exercise can strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it can not address excess skin that has lost elasticity, weakened tissues, or localized fatty deposits.

Arms have a particular tendency to accumulate fat and in doing so stretches the skin. If this is followed by a subsequent loss of weight, this excess of skin is very difficult or almost impossible to remove without a process of an arm lift or brachioplasty.

An Arm Lift Surgery can be combined with other forms of body contouring surgery such as liposuction, or it can be performed at the same time as other cosmetic surgeries. Liposuction can be a surgical alternative to the brachial lift if there is a good elastic tone of the skin and fat accumulations located in an individual of normal weight. Diet and exercise can be beneficial for a global reduction of excess body fat.


It’s no secret that the thighs are among the most troublesome areas of a woman’s body. To help combat their stubborn ways, Dr. Astudillo’s  thigh lift is the pinnacle of slimming, rejuvenating procedures. Through a combination of liposuction and skin lifting, he gives women the confidence to flaunt their gams without a second thought to their appearance.

Unshapely thighs can be a result of the natural aging process as the skin loses elasticity. Poor genes and recent weight loss can also be a factor. Regardless of the reason, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your thighs, a thigh lift may be the perfect option for your needs.

While a patient’s candidacy for a thigh lift will ultimately be determined through a personal consultation with Dr. Victor Astudillo, it’s important to know that a thigh lift will address the following:

  • stubborn fat in the thighs
  • excessive thigh circumference, making it difficult to find clothes that fit
  • excess skin on the thighs after significant weight loss
