Arm lift surgery, medically referred to as brachioplasty, can give your upper arms a much firmer, tighter appearance. Even if you are in the best shape of your life, the upper arms can be two of the most stubborn areas of the body when it comes to the accumulation of excess fat and skin that is resistant to diet and exercise. This is a very common condition and often results from weight loss or the loss of skin elasticity that occurs during the natural aging process. An arm lift can go a long way toward resolving the problem by removing loose, sagging skin and pulling the remaining skin taut. Dr. Thomas Lintner can give your arms a smoother, more youthful appearance with this popular procedure.
The Arm Lift Procedure
Once you meet with Dr. Lintner for an initial consultation, he will evaluate your needs and explain what the arm lift surgery procedure will entail. In most cases, an arm lift requires an incision created on the back side of the arm from the armpit to the elbow. Dr. Lintner will eliminate the extra skin and then redrape the remaining skin, which should give the arms beautifully renewed contours and a more “fit” look. A combination of liposuction and arm lift surgery may also be beneficial for some patients in order to achieve optimal results.
Arm lift surgery can typically be performed on an outpatient basis. Most people who have this procedure are able to resume normal daily activities after one week; however, this can vary from patient to patient. You will need to avoid any strenuous activity for a number of weeks following arm lift surgery to ensure that the treatment areas have fully healed. Dr. Lintner will customize the arm lift surgery to your unique needs. During your initial examination, he will answer all of your questions and help you determine whether arm lift surgery is the ideal option for your goals.
