Here’s What You Need To Know:
When we gain or lose weight, the skin and fat under our arms can become a stubborn area to keep toned. The aging process can also make our skin lose elasticity, causing unwanted sagging under the arms. This surgical procedure, also known as “Brachioplasty,” can help firm and tighten the skin under your upper arms when diet and exercise aren’t enough. During this procedure, Dr. Gaines will focus on removing excess fat and skin from the area closest to the armpits. This technique helps contour the arms, giving them a more desirable shape.
Should I Consider Getting An Arm Lift?
Consider this procedure if you have loose or sagging skin under your arms that hasn’t improved through diet or exercise. This procedure is also excellent if your upper arm skin becomes loose after losing significant weight.
How Is The Procedure Performed?
During the arm lift procedure, Dr. Gaines will incision from the elbow to the armpit. The doctor will remove excess skin, tighten the area and create more muscle definition. If you don’t have excess skin, he may perform another method by making small incisions in the underarm area to tighten the upper arms.
How Long Is The Recovery?
After the procedure, you will go home wearing compression garments around your upper arms. One week out, you should be able to go back to work. In one month, you will be able to start exercising regularly and return to activities. However, you may feel swelling in the months to follow.
