I'm interested in having an arm lift but I am overweight, other then that I have no other health issues.

Would I be considered to have the required treatment or would I have to loose more weight?


In general, it is preferable to reduce the weight prior to surgery, as the risks related to the operation are lower, and also to avoid a situation where after further weight loss following surgery the arms may loose some of the quality of the result.
