Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)
The upper arms may develop excess stretched out and sagging skin that are difficult to improve with diet and exercise. This flaccid skin is not uncommon after extreme weight loss, and as a result of aging. Dr. Delia is pleased to offer an arm lift/arm tuck (brachioplasty) or, arm lift surgery procedure to help remove and tighten this extra stretched out skin in the arms. The surgery results in a more firm and fit appearance to the upper arms.
Arm Tuck Procedure
Dr. Delia typically makes an inconspicuous incision along the underside of the arms to remove extra stretched skin. Then the arms are tightened for a smoother, more physically fit appearance. The resultant scar will be kept as light and as inconspicuous as possible. Some bruising and swelling may be seen after the surgery which will lessen over the recovery period.
This procedure may involve use of a compression garment for several days to help healing. Dr. Delia can perform this surgery on an outpatient basis and most patients can resume normal activities within one week after the arm lift procedure.
The Massachusetts Brachioplasty procedure is a picture-perfect surgery for patients who have a significant amount of excess skin or fat in the upper arm area. It’s also necessary to mention that the patient should maintain a stable weight to have realistic expectations for surgery. The arm lift procedure will reduce excess skin and fat deposits between the underarm and the elbow. It reshapes the skin and contours of the upper arm, and gives the arms a more toned appearance.
