An arm lift, technically referred to as Brachioplasty, can remove excess fat and skin that creates a ‘bat wing’ appearance on the upper arms, to give it a more pleasing contour. Yes, it is a body contouring method that helps to sculpt, shape and slenderize your arms. You don’t have to feel embarrassed by the flabby and floppy skin on your arms that prevent you from wearing sleeveless clothing. Get an Arm lift done to banish those ‘bingo wings’ in your arms forever.
An incision is made along the inside of the upper arm to remove the excess fat with liposuction. Any excess sagging skin is excised, tightened and sewn back into place using the regular aesthetic suturing. Sometimes, before the incisions are sutured a temporary tube is inserted to drain the excess fluid from the surgical site. This procedure reduces drooping skin, tightens the underlying supportive tissues, minimizes localized pockets of fat in the upper arms and redefines the entire shape of your arm.
You may need an Arm lift if you have
- Excessive upper arm skin and fat that resembles bat wings as a result of weight loss
- Loss of skin elasticity in the upper arm region
- Weakened tissues in the upper arm
You are eligible for an Arm lift if you
- Desire a more aesthetic and contoured profile for your upper arms
- Maintain a normal weight but struggle with significant upper arm laxity
- Possess a healthy body without any medical conditions that impede the healing process
- Have a realistic expectation of the possible outcome of the treatment
The Risks Involved
