Question Second arm lift... is this possible?

A good friend of mine had an arm lift surgery a few years ago after she had gastric bypass. The thing is though that she has now lost even more weight *she looks AMAZING* but since she lost even more weight since her first operation I think she could use another one. Is that even possible to do? Doesn't this operation involve cutting out a lot of important parts like muscle at stuff?

(I actually came to this plastic surgery forum to ask about something else but I'd figure I'd ask this while I'm here, too)

Default 2nd Arm Lift Surgery

I know this was posted a while ago, however, I wanted to share with you that I personally have a friend that went through with a second armlift. She too had gastic and unfortunately had the first arm lift surgery prematurely. She ended up losing an additional 60 pounds after the first arm lift (brachioplasty) surgery, and had alot of extra skin. Her original doctor ended up performing a second surgery with great success as far as tightening. However, she was fair-skinned and the scaring was quite severe. She decided to do a series of fractional resurfacing treatments along with chemical peels, I think it was TCA. Both helped tremendously.

Yes, this is a more common situation than you would think. The gastric bypass can do wonders for trimming people down, but then you have other issues to deal with.

The muscle is rarely touched, only the fat and extra skin, both of which are above the muscle layer.

My understanding is that if the muscle needs to be harmed then the arm lift was not a good idea or possibly needed - if there is a true need it this cosmetic surgery can be done a second time without harm.
