What is an Arm Lift?
Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a procedure that removes the excess skin and fat deposits in the upper arm area. As a person ages, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Dr. Phillips consults with his Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale patients to determine whether they are a good candidate for an upper arm lift procedure. In some cases, Dr. Phillips may recommend that liposuction be used alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms. This procedure is customized to fit your particular needs.
The Arm Lift Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Phillips, you will discuss the incision site and length, and whether liposuction will accompany the procedure. The overall goal is smoother, more contoured skin of the arms proportionate to the rest of your body. The length of the surgery and recovery process will be thoroughly explained, and your questions will be addressed at the time of your consultation with Dr. Phillips.
The Arm Lift Procedure
The ideal candidates for an arm lift are individuals with no adverse medical conditions, those with significant flabby or loose skin in the upper arm, and individuals who are not significantly overweight. During the arm lift procedure, Dr. Phillips will administer general anesthesia for your comfort. He will then makes incisions in strategic locations to allow removal of excess skin. You may also require liposuction to remove excess fat. After the swelling from the arm lift procedure goes down, you will see a shapelier and better toned upper arm. The recovery period for an arm lift varies from one individual to the next and depends on factors such as the scope of the surgery and whether additional procedures were performed.
