The natural process of aging can cause relaxed, sagging skin on both the face and the body. This is especially true in the upper arm area, where loose skin can cause the development of what is referred to as “bat wings.” If you lift up your arms and wave, do you experience swinging skin underneath? If so, you could benefit from the brachioplasty procedure, or “arm lift.”
What is the goal of brachioplasty?
The arm lift procedure is used to improve the upper arm’s appearance by removing excess fat and/or skin. This can be done with liposuction and manual removal of skin in the area. Liposuction leaves very small scars, while the removal of skin will result in scarring that extends from the elbow to the arm pit. However, the final results are dramatic, and allow many patients to feel comfortable and confident when wearing more revealing clothing.
What can I expect after the arm lift?
Patients will want to take sufficient time off of work and school after having this procedure done to facilitate healing and reduce the risk of complications, including infection. Patients will book an appointment approximately one week past their surgical date which allows our doctor to evaluate the results and determine if further services are required.
