Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
Brachioplasty or an arm lift procedure may be the best solution if you feel conscious about loose or sagging skin in your upper arms. Your plastic surgeon will cut off surplus hanging skin during this body contouring procedure.
They will also remove all stubborn fat deposits. They will pull your skin together tightly to conform to the new arm contours. You will emerge from the surgical procedure looking more youthful and fitter with arms that complement the rest of your body in a better fashion.
Vinings Surgery Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove, provides brachioplasty to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Choose the Right Type of Brachioplasty
Upper arm lift surgery is often useful for people that have recently lost a lot of weight because of diet, exercise or bariatric surgery. It is an effective way of treating aging signs in the upper arms. There are several techniques for performing this surgery, such as mini-arm lift or standard upper arm lift.
Your surgeon will help you choose the best solution depending on the natural contours of your arm and cosmetic goals. Regardless of the type of arm lift procedure you choose, the surgery can have dramatic effects on your overall appearance. You would realize that the subtlest changes in the appearance of your arms can make you look noticeably slimmer and younger.
As with other cosmetic surgery procedures, you may want to have the arm lift procedure performed as stand-alone or in combination with other procedures. Most patients choose to have their arm lift surgery performed along with breast lift, thigh lift, abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, neck lift, facelift, and brow lift.
Ideal Candidates for Arm Lift
There are no ‘perfect’ candidates for any cosmetic surgery procedure. However, there are certain features that distinguish the typical candidate for an arm lift surgery.
Excessively drooping skin in the upper arms may be a bother if you have recently gained and lost weight because of pregnancy or lost a significant amount of weight because of a bariatric surgery. You may be an excellent candidate for the procedure if sagging upper arm skin bothers you. It is important that you be of stable weight before undergoing the procedure.
Adults of all age groups qualify for an arm lift procedure. However, you will be able to enjoy the results only if your skin is elastic. You should also be able to tolerate anesthesia. Your doctor may prescribe a few tests if you are over the age of 65. Arm lift plastic surgery involves very few risks for healthy and approved candidates.
These are a few additional considerations to qualify for an arm lift procedure. You should:
- Be a non-smoker
- Be in good health
- Keep reasonable expectations from the surgery in terms of the outcome
The only way you can determine whether you are an ideal candidate or not for a brachioplasty is by scheduling a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Colgrove receives patients from Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and nearby areas for brachioplasty.
