To begin

I have had significant weight loss and now have very large bat wings. I'm really interested in a complete body lift and would like recovery times n ball park costs

Procedure: Arm Lift

That is a great question. The only answer that coud be of true significance and value to you is that which is only possible after a thorough consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. No one can give you an accurate answer without talking to you in person and examining you. Best wishes.

Congratulations! I treat a lot of weight loss patients. The fee for a brachioplasty will vary from surgeon to surgeon. Make sure you go to some one with a lot of experience. Good luck

Congratulations on your weight loss and best wishes on your body contouring procedures. A brachioplasty will vary in costs across the country and depending on the extent of arm lift required. See a series of surgeons in consultation to discuss prices after an in-person exam.

Great to hear about your weight loss... sorry to hear about the sequelae of weight loss. Costs are going to be considerable and rarely covered by insurance companies. Invest in in consultations and find out what options you have.

Thank you for your excellent question. It’s hard to give you an answer without fully examining you first to see the extent of your excess skin. Following this we can formulate a plan to best achieve your goals. The price for a surgery depends on 4 things:

1.) surgeon fee

2.) anesthesia fee

3.) operating room fee

4.) cost of any implants such as breast implants

It is very important to consult with a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to ensure that you get the highest level of quality and safe care.

Best wishes!

It really depends on what is done. I would suggest to send photos and I would be glad to give you estimates.
