Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift or arm tuck, is a procedure designed to remove the redundant, loose skin of the upper arms. The procedure can help to give the arms a sleeker, tighter, and more toned appearance. At American Institute for Plastic Surgery, we offer the arm lift procedure for patients in Plano, Dallas, Ft. Worth, and Denton County.
Basic Facts About Brachioplasty
Hanging arm skin, also known as “bat wings”, can interfere with one’s ability to fit into sleeved tops, as well as cause underarm rashes or irritation. The majority of candidates for brachioplasty are those who have experienced a massive weight loss, but may also include those who have, for genetic reasons, accumulated a large amount of upper arm flabbiness or loss of skin elasticity.
ARM LIFT/BRACHIOPLASTY: THE PROCEDURE
The arm lift procedure tightens the skin of the arms by eliminating the sagging skin pain. The incisions for brachioplasty are made inside the upper arm or in the armpit region. By means of this incision, excess skin and fat are removed. In some cases, liposuction may be used to help remove excess fat during the arm lift procedure. Once the excess tissue is removed, the arm skin will be tightly wrapped around the arm muscles and the incision will be sutured shut.
This procedure may be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures. Many patients with loose excess arm skin may also have loose skin around their thighs, stomach, or buttocks. In these cases, an arm lift can be performed along with a tummy tuck or thigh lift. These options can be discussed when you come in for your arm lift consultation in Plano.
