At Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery in New York, we want you to be comfortable in your own skin. That is why we offer an arm lift for those of you who feel the need to wear long sleeves year-round due to disproportion, scars or poor tone.
What Is an Arm Lift?
Brachioplasty, commonly called an arm lift, is a cosmetic contouring procedure which eliminates fatty deposits around the arm, reducing loose and excess skin. It is sometimes performed in conjunction with liposuction, depending on the reason for the procedure.
Arm lifts are a safe and effective solution for achieving a smooth and slim contour. An upper Brachioplasty is ideal for patients who have lost a lot of weight and have excess skin hanging beneath their upper arms. Mini Brachioplasties are performed on patients in which the excess skin isn’t as bad.
Why Consider an Arm Lift?
There are many reasons to consider an arm lift. Many men and women opt for this procedure to improve their self-confidence, so they can participate in activities such as swimming without embarrassment. Still ,others want to improve their tone and shape of their upper arms by removing excess skin and fat.
Many patients choose this procedure because their arms feel heavy or poorly maneuverable and they want to be more active. And, many people consider brachioplasty because they want their arms to fit more comfortably into their clothes.
Am I a Good Candidate?
A good candidate for brachioplasty is one who maintains a healthy weight successfully for at least a year before undergoing the procedure. The person must also possess a positive outlook and realistic expectations regarding the outcome of the surgery.
A good candidate will also be a person who has significant upper arm skin laxity and who wants to improve the appearance of their arms by removing excess fat and skin. He/she must be in good, general health as certain antibiotics taken within two weeks of the procedure may interact with anesthesia and analgesics.
Finally, a good candidate is one who willingly follows all the surgeon’s instructions for before and after the procedure.
