Posted May 20, 2014 in Arm Lift
If you’re like most women, the words “bikini,” “tank top,” or “sleeveless” evoke feelings of anxiety at this time of year. Longer days and warmer weather are already hinting at the eminence of swimsuit season. If you’re not confident about the way you look, your faithful cardigans and sweaters are sure to betray you as temperatures rise.
Get Slender, Toned Arms with Brachioplasty
“Brachioplasty” refers to a procedure that has restored confidence for many women in this situation. Also called the “arm lift,” this procedure gets rid of hanging underarm skin, excess fat, and stretch marks if they are located on the skin that is to be removed. Most patients who choose this procedure have lost a significant amount of weight, and the excess skin that remains is heavy, unattractive, and cumbersome. The arm lift will leave a scar that extends from the armpit to the elbow, but the majority of patients consider this a worth-while trade-off for lighter, leaner-looking arms.
The arm lift is also becoming an increasingly popular choice for those who only need slight improvement to their arms.The procedure will involve a smaller incision that will not reach the elbow. If only a very small amount of fat needs to be removed, liposuction may be sufficient to get the desired result.
Brachioplasty is performed either at our fully accredited, state-of-the-art surgical suite or at a licensed hospital or outpatient facility. Results with this procedure can be seen immediately and will continue to improve within a couple of weeks as swelling subsides.
