The Arm Lift procedure is performed to improve the appearance of the upper arms when there is sagging in the area that cannot be improved through diet and exercise alone. The Arm Lift procedure, also called Brachioplasty, is performed under either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia and an incision is made along the inside of the arm between the elbow and armpit. The size of the incision and exact placement may depend on the amount of reduction required to achieve the desired goal. Sometimes excess fat in the area may be address during the procedure as well. Underlying tissue may also be reshaped or tightened before the remaining skin is closed to create the smoother, more toned upper arm appearance desired.
If you are tired of feeling self-conscious about your upper arm appearance and are interested in learning more about the arm lift procedure and recovery process, contact our office to schedule your consultation to find out if you may be a good candidate. It is important to understand that the arm lift procedure will leave a permanent scar.
