In Newport Beach, board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi understands that your busy schedule can get in the way of taking care of yourself. Bouts of stress and insufficient exercise add to the cycle of weight fluctuations. In some cases, patients have lost significant weight (for example, 100 pounds), but are left with excess fat or excessively loose skin in areas that exercise does not seem to touch, like the upper arm. SSK Plastic Surgery offers arm lift surgery to remove excess skin from the upper arm to create a slimmer profile that will compliment your shape.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017

"This is a review from the husband of a patient of a mommy makeover...That being said, I felt like I was the patient of Dr Kelishadi because he treated me that way. He kept me informed. He asked if I had any questions. He went out of his way to text me outside of office visits. He cares about his patients and their significant others. Now about his work: amazing. He kept telling me I'd love it. I sort of brushed it off because of the unknown, but can say 10000000% he was right. He has given my wife unbelievable confidence and selfishly I am having a TON of fun with her (Good thing I'm snipped). Pre surgery he was amazing, and post surgery the first thing he did was find me in the lobby to walk me through everything. He would text me randomly to check in and prepared us for the fun journey we went on. The whole process honestly made our marriage stronger and I owe it to Dr Kelishadi for preparing me to be strong for my wife and prepare her to be able to enjoy the adventure.If you're on the fence or hesitant, I assure you he is worth every penny. Best experience! AND GO LAKERS!"- J.C. / Google / Feb 04, 2019
Although fat can be removed from problematic areas via liposuction, excessive skin remains. The skin hangs and shakes from beneath your upper arms, including when you wave. Excessive skin is unsightly, interferes with the fit of your clothing, but it can be surgically excised.
As your Orange County Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kelishadi can perform various levels of brachioplasty, depending on the amount of loose skin to be removed. Severe cases that mimic wings require an extended arm lift. In many cases, liposuction is needed to reduce fat and improve contour in the areas of the arm that cannot be reached with our incision. In patients who have excess arm fat but tight skin, liposuction may be all that is needed. Together, we will discuss your goals and decide the most-effective strategy to achieve the look you desire.
- Dr. Kelishadi will make an incision that may be limited or may extend from your armpit to your elbow. He will then tailor-tack the skin flaps that he raised and measure the ideal amount of excess skin to help you obtain a tight contour. This requires a fine balance because Dr. Kelishadi's goal is to achieve a “tension-free” closure so that your scars will heal nicely and minimize their widening over time.
- Incisions for brachioplasty in Orange County are some of the least forgiving and meticulously planned to be difficult to see. Based on your skin and tissue quality, we will decide the ideal placement of your incisions so that scars 1) are as concealed as possible and 2) will heal properly.
- Under average circumstances this is an outpatient procedure; stitches are removed 1 week later; after 4-6 weeks you may resume normal activities with your upper body.
- During your recovery, Dr. Kelishadi and the staff at SSK Plastic Surgery will help you create a careful plan to ensure your safety and satisfaction.

After your Orange County arm lift, you'll be saying, “Bye-bye, long sleeves!” and “Hello, sleeveless!” Other common areas for liposuction and contouring are the jawline and neck, the back, the bra-strap region, the midsection, and the thighs. A combination of surgical and nonsurgical improvements will complement one another for a more-balanced look of cosmetic enhancement.
