The flab on your upper arms can be anything but fun or appealing. In fact, it may negatively impact your self-esteem and cause you to avoid wearing short sleeves or sleeveless tops. When you want to tone your arms, you may consider undergoing an upper arm lift.
What is Arm Lift Surgery?
Arm lift surgery is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fat from your upper arms. It is also called brachioplasty, and it tightens and smooths the supportive tissue that shapes your arms. Our surgeon can also perform a brachioplasty procedure to remove localized pockets of fat in your upper arms.
Candidacy for Arm Lift Surgery
Our surgeon will not perform this surgery on just anybody. You will have to meet certain criteria to ensure that you are a viable candidate for the procedure.
Our doctor will need to determine the amount of skin and excess fat that you would like to have removed from your upper arms. Depending on your age, weight, and fitness level, you may be advised to work out or use other means to tone your arms before undergoing the surgery.
Our surgeon will also determine if you are at a stable weight and not too heavy to go through the procedure. Obese patients are generally advised to lose weight before they go through arm lift surgery. You may be a good candidate for upper arm lift surgery if you do not smoke and if you have an optimistic and realistic outlook regarding the procedure, as well as the results.
How Arm Lift Surgery is Done
The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient, as no two sets of arms are exactly alike. However, a typical procedure involves the removal of fat and excessive tissue and the restructuring of the remaining tissue in order to achieve a smooth, toned appearance. Basically, our surgeon will create new and improved contours in your arms.
