WHAT IS AN ARM LIFT?
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes fat and excess hanging skin from the upper arms. During the procedure, the underlying contour of the arm is tightened creating a smooth, slender upper arm. Aging, genetics and weight fluctuations are the most common causes of sagging upper arms. If you’re looking for a high-quality arm lift, Dr. Correa can help you..
*Individual results may vary.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR ARM LIFT SURGERY?
Anyone who is unhappy with their upper arms can benefit from a brachioplasty as long as they are in good general health, and have a stable weight. Dr. Correa will be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns so he can make a recommendation on treatment.
People who have lost a massive amount of weight find that there is a great deal of excess skin that will not respond to any exercise regimen. The excess skin must be removed surgically to correct the shape of the arm. Exercise will tone the underlying muscle but in the presence of excess skin, unfortunately, that effort will go unnoticed.
In cases where the skin has good elasticity and the amount of sagging is minimal, arm liposuction may be all that is needed to tighten the upper arm.
Dr. Correa’s Philosophy on
“The Houston summers can be hot and are no time for long sleeves. Unfortunately, some patients are self-conscious about their arms and summer can be an uncomfortable and long season. Thankfully, brachioplasty or liposuction can often fix this problem with minimal downtime and reliable outcomes.”
