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
"Doctor Kelishadi is the best plastic surgeon. He answered all my questions and concerns, and was very patient with me during the whole procedure. Breast augmentation is a big deal, he made sure I am comfortable, he was realistic and performed all the measurements and simulations to ensure that the procedure is safe for me and that I will have the best results. 4 months after the surgery I still can not believe this is ME in the mirror! He has done amazing work, he is really passionate about his art and his results are natural. What I like about him is that he always grow and learn about the trends, he stay up to date with everything and he makes sure he provides the best service for us. After the surgery I had his private phone number and I could text him or call him anytime with questions during the recovery. I knew exactly what to do so my recovery is fast and with no problems, I had all the details instructions about medications I need to take and what I can and can not do. His staff is the friendliest and most helpful! Shae and Alejandra answered all my questions. They both were very patient, they have never rushed me and made sure I feel comfortable and ready for the surgery. I highly recommend SSK Plastic Surgery. I am extremely happy with my results, I will come back to this place for the different treatments that they offer, because I know I can trust Doctor Kelishadi and his staff!"- A.S. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2019
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing! I love how attentive he is and gives you great advice on what you should get done or shouldn't. I've been to different surgeon offices and I always find myself booking another appointment with his office instead. The ladies at his office are another reason why I keep coming as well, such sweet and friendly ladies. I love how Every time I come they are super welcoming and I don't feel like I'm being judged! I've been to Offices before where I feel like I'm bugging the staff or when I'm asking questions they answer very annoyed. Here! They answer all your questions with concern and very kindly. Thank you Shae & Alex for being great customer service representatives & following up on my appointment reminders! I've had a hydra facial + Vivace done at his office. Which I definitely recommend, I should probably book another hydra-facial while I'm writing this review. Also, I've had my breast done elsewhere but will be contacting Dr. K once I'm ready for new boobies. I'll be referring all my clients, friends, staff, and family to Dr. Kelishadi FIVE STARS FROM ISABELLA"- I.C. / Yelp / Jun 21, 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.
