ARM LIFT IN NEWPORT BEACH
An Arm Lift (brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure which removes excess skin and fat from the upper arm. The upper arm can become droopy or flabby from:
- Weight loss
- Effects of aging
The intended result of a brachioplasty, or an arm lift, is to create a slimmer, more youthful arm contour.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR AN ARM LIFT?
Arm lifts are performed on a wide variety of patients. This includes patients of healthy weight who just need a bit of tightening to achieve their desired arm shape. Most arm lift patients have undergone massive weight loss, leaving the skin on their arms loose for a “bat wing” effect. It is recommended that massive weight loss patients reach a stable weight before this procedure is done. Older women sometimes have droopy upper arms, which are easily corrected with an arm lift. Many arm lift candidates want to wear short-sleeve shirts without feeling self-conscious.
