Brachioplasty-Arm Lift

Brachioplasty-Arm Lift North Miami, FL

You have worked hard to lose that weight, but now you are stuck with loose skin on your arms no matter how much you exercise! Consider getting a brachioplasty, often called an arm lift, to transform your look and your life. Unlike rhinoplasty or other cosmetic surgeries, brachioplasty is a type of reconstructive surgery; it is designed to restore a more natural and undamaged appearance, as opposed to “correcting” naturally-occurring traits such as an elongated nose.

ARC Plastic Surgery, reconstructive and plastic surgery providers in South Florida, have announced that they will be now performing brachioplasty surgeries for patients who might benefit from this incredible reconstructive procedure.

What Happens In an Arm Lift?

Brachioplasty (casually referred to as an arm lift), is a surgical procedure that is designed to remove excess hanging skin from the arms. This loose skin can develop either with age or after significant weight loss. This development can be aesthetically unappealing and even cause difficulty fitting into certain clothing. However, the scar of a brachioplasty is hidden on the inside of the arm so that it is not visible when the arms are at the sides, and this is often a worthwhile exchange for this excess skin. In the arm lift, Dr. White also often extends the incision when necessary into the armpits to tighten the skin above the bra straps. This results in a smooth fit appearing arm contour.

Who Is a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?

Sometimes people who lose a large amount of weight, their skin, which was once stretched to fit the excess fat on their body, remains in this enlarged state and sags off of the tighter muscle and bone. This tends to be both unsightly and inconvenient, as it can also cause clothing to be un-fitted. Brachioplasty can be a great procedure for both men and women, as it may affect anyone who has been through serious weight loss.
