An arm lift or Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that improves the shape of your arms by removing excess skin and fat (adipose tissue) from the arms.
When young, our skin is generally soft and firm. However, with age, following childbirth or significant changes in weight, or due to illness or an accident, one can observe an accumulation of fat and a relaxation of skin in the arms.
Brachioplasty cosmetic surgery or arm lift can help decrease the size and shape of your arms.
During an arm lift, Dr. Cordoba will begin by tracing the incision lines on the inner parts of the arms. Dr. Cordoba will then remove the excess skin (remodeling) and fat. The last step of the surgery consists in repositioning and suturing the skin.
The arm lift leaves permanent and visible scars along the inner part of the arms.
The best (s) candidate (s) for an arm lift are individuals that are:
- Have realistic expectations about what this surgery can do
- Emotionally well balanced
An arm lift (Brachioplasty) can be performed in a single procedure or in combination with other cosmetic surgeries such as liposuction, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty or face surgery.
One option would be not to undergo an arm lift cosmetic surgery.
If you have good skin elasticity, liposuction may be a better option.
