What Does an Arm Lift Involve?
An arm lift, known in the medical world as brachioplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that will sculpt your arms to match your self-image. Good candidates for an arm lift are those that have lost a lot of weight and have excess skin that has not contracted, or shrunk. If you can relate to having excess skin, than you are probably a good candidate for an arm lift.
The planning for an arm lift is similar to other body contouring procedures. During the actual surgical procedure, Dr. Jon Harrell will design a pattern on your upper arm and remove the excess skin. Some other things to know about arm lift procedures are:
- An incision is made at the back of the arm and extends from the underarm to the elbow-this is where the excess skin is removed from
- The length of the incision depends upon the severity of the loose skin
- Body contouring can be combined with liposuction
- The visible site of incision and resulting scar is the most significant trade off
With over 24 years of experience in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Jon Harrell is your Florida Board Certified Plastic Surgeon ready to tailor your body sculpting procedure to achieve the desired goals you have for your body.
