The displayed before and after pictures are provided as an educational tool to demonstrate some of the results achievable from plastic surgery. All surgeries on this page are performed by Dr Eddy Dona and are published with the written consent by the patients.
Before & after images are generally shown between 3-6 months post-surgery. These images are not a guarantee that you will have similar results, regardless of if you have a similar body type or shape. This is because, with each patient, many different variables exist that can affect the outcome.
All surgery carries risks, requires recovery time, and the results will vary for each individual patient.

An arm lift, or Brachioplasty, is a procedure that removes loose, excess skin from the upper arms, colloquially known as ‘bat wings’ or ‘tuck shop lady’ arms, creating more defined, trim and toned upper arms. This loose and excess skin tends to develop as a result of significant weight loss, or the soft tissue in the arm becoming lax, and the skin experiencing loss of elasticity due to natural ageing or genetics.
During Brachioplasty, incisions will be made on the inside or back of your arm. The incision may extend from the underarm, to just above the elbow. This can be performed in conjunction with liposuction. The underlying deep tissue layer is tightened with stitches to smooth and define the shade of the upper arm. The excessive skin is then trimmed, tightened, and sutured into place. The skin is then smoothed over the new contour of the arm. The arm lift tightens the entire arm, from the armpit to above the elbow.
