Do you have excess skin on your upper arms that droops? Do you find that no matter how hard you work out at the gym it doesn’t go away? In these cases, an Arm Lift (or a Brachioplasty) might be appropriate.
This condition is common in women. One of the ways it happens is after significant weight loss. It makes sense if you think about it. After you lose all the weight, the excess skin may remain. It can also occur simply due to aging. As the skin loses its elasticity, it sags.
The Arm Lift is designed to remove the excess skin and sculpt what remains to look the way you want. The concept behind it is fairly simple. An incision is made on the inside of the arm. Liposuction is used to remove the excess fat. Then skin can be trimmed and tightened as appropriate. This is where the sculpting comes in. Then the incision is closed.
If you only have a small amount of excess skin near the armpit, you might be a candidate for a minimal incision Arm Lift. In this case, a smaller incision is made at the top of the arm where it joins the armpit.
If you are tired of hiding your muscles under the extra skin of your upper arms, contact our practice to schedule a consultation with Dr. Singer to find out if an Arm Lift is indicated. She will review your goals, answer your questions, discuss your options, and share likely outcomes.
