This young female who presents after a gastric sleeve in 2017 and has lost approximately 100 lbs is unhappy with the excessive amount of skin on her arms. Due to her major weightloss journey she is embarrassed to wear short sleeves or sleeveless clothing where her arms are exposed.

She is now more confident in the appearance of her arms and is now comfortable enough to wear tops where her arms are exposed.
