What Is An Arm Lift?
One big challenge with getting older or losing weight is developing loose skin. At LaBrasca Plastic Surgery, we offer arm lift surgery (also called brachioplasty) as an intervention for anyone who cannot manage to tighten and tone their upper arms with natural methods. Excess skin from the elbow to the upper arm is very typical in individuals who are getting older or have lost significant amounts of weight. An upper arm lift effectively excises this hanging skin, commonly referred to as "bat wings." Dr. Algie LaBrasca is very skilled in skin tightening and fat removal surgeries. If you want to hear more about how brachioplasty can improve the look of your arms, please contact LaBrasca Plastic Surgery in Brookville or DuBois, PA for an appointment.
How Is An Arm Lift Performed?
In most cases, your upper arm lift surgery will take place in an outpatient facility unless several cosmetic surgeries are being performed at the same time. An arm lift may be added to other procedures, such as tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, and thigh lifts — as long as Dr. LaBrasca deems it safe. An upper arm lift is typically done under general anesthesia and can take a few hours to finish. The loose skin will be surgically excised starting at the elbow all the way up to the armpit. The incision will be placed as inconspicuously as possible, but it will leave a visible scar. In cases where liposuction is needed to remove stubborn pockets of fat, this can be completed as well. Once the skin is pulled taut, it will be sutured together. It's important to care for the incisions by keeping them sanitized, covered, and supported with compression garments to optimize healing.
