Arm lift - What was your self pay total?



Recommended Posts

I had gastric sleeve about 8 months ago and I am down around 60 pounds. I am 8 pounds away from my personal goal and 17 from my doctor's goal.

Even before my sleeve, I had flappy arms. This was mostly due to weight fluctuations on various diets throughout the year. Obviously, having the sleeve has not helped. This is the only area of my body that I have this issue, and although I was originally against any kind of surgery, I am really thinking about saving the money and getting it done.

For those of you that had this done in the United States, what did you pay? I know insurance probably will not cover it, so I will have to pay out of pocket. As a teacher, it will probably take a good while to save up, but it will be worth it.

Check out BariatricPalmx. That might end up being a more affordable option. I might have to get some work done too so I can avoid the flying squirrel look. :)

Have you seen www.realself.com?

‘Lots of great info there regarding what things cost near you, surgeons near you, photos, etc.

A close friend of mine had Brachioplasty done after weight loss. If I remember correctly it was around the 8k range but was bundled with another procedure so I don’t know if maybe there was a bit of a price break or what have you. Costs can vary pretty dramatically by state.
