Weight loss and aging can cause the skin under our upper arms to lose its elasticity. As a result, our upper arms may sag and droop, giving us an unsightly appearance in the areas between our elbows and armpits.
To restore your youthful and firm upper arms, Dr. Coville at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery offers arm lift procedures that will significantly improve the undersides of your upper arms. Dr. Coville has over 25 years of experience in the aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery field, making him a highly qualified surgeon for arm lift procedures.
What is an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess sagging skin and fat from flabby upper arms. During an arm lift procedure, Dr. Coville at Cornerstone Plastic Surgery may also tighten underlying tissue and reshape your upper arms to provide you with a more toned upper arm area.
During the procedure, he may use liposuction techniques to remove excess fat in the undersides of your arms. The extent of your incisions will depend on how much skin your surgeon needs to remove. You can expect your surgeon to place incisions under your upper arms and close them with stitches after tightening your tissues.
Dr. Coville may also perform other surgical procedures at the same time, depending on your personal preference and aesthetic goals. Pairing your arm lift procedure with other body contouring procedures may help improve your overall figure in one session. You may pair your brachioplasty with a tummy tuck, a breast augmentation, or another body sculpting procedure of your choice.
