Fluctuations in weight, aging and heredity can cause the upper arms to have significant sagging or loose skin. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through diet and exercise. A procedure known as an arm lift or brachioplasty can significantly reduce that loose skin and create a smoother, more youthful appearance. Choose an arm lift for the following:
- Eliminate excess skin, especially after major weight loss
- Improve self esteem with a more youthful, smooth appearance to the arms
- Firming and toning the underlying skin
In the initial consultation, Dr. Crabtree will use the time to get to know you, learn about your expectations and discuss a plan to achieve your goals. This may be a part of a post-bariatric weight loss body-contouring plan. For these patients, an arm lift can be an integral part of completing their body transformation. He will discuss the different variables of surgery and risks. Prior to surgery you will have a good understanding of the procedure, plan and recovery.
