Conveniently located to serve Tallahassee
Tallahassee, Dothan, Thomasville, Panama City, Destin and Valdosta plastic surgery patients come to Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic for arm lift surgery, which removes sagging skin on the upper arms due to aging, genetics, or weight loss. The intended results of an arm lift (brachioplasty) plastic surgery procedure is to reduce or eliminate excess skin from the upper arms. The result is a more toned, youthful appearance.
After an arm lift patients often report that they are more comfortable in the fit of long-sleeved clothing, and that they feel better about their appearance in short-sleeved and sleeveless apparel. Patients often report increased self-confidence overall as a result of a successful brachioplasty procedure.
Should I Get an Arm Lift?
Patients who are insecure about the loose skin hanging off of their upper arms can benefit from an arm lift. Brachioplasty is also beneficial for patients who are experiencing physical discomfort as a result of the amount of loose skin on their arms. Such excess skin can chafe and can even limit the kinds of clothes that patients can wear.
The procedure is an ideal option for patients who recently lost a significant amount of weight. Getting rid of excess skin can allow these patients to more easily see the results of their hard work after losing weight through diet and exercise.
Candidates who are still in the process of losing weight, however, are not encouraged to get an arm lift until the weight-loss process is complete. The same goes for patients who are currently experiencing fluctuating body weight due to hormone treatments, medications, or health conditions.
Your Arm Lift Consultation
During a consultation for an arm lift, the doctor will examine the excess skin present on the upper arms. The patient will be asked about their arm-contouring expectations and goals, their medical history, and any medications they are taking. The procedure will then be explained, as will the recovery process.
Tallahassee, Dothan, Thomasville, Panama City, Destin and Valdosta plastic surgery patients usually have their arm lift surgery done under general anesthesia. In order to remove the unwanted skin, an incision is often required that runs from near the elbow into the armpit, but other smaller incisions are sometimes possible depending on the amount of excess skin. The incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location (inner arm toward the back), but some scarring will always be visible, even if the scar is faint. An additional procedure that may enhance the result is liposuction of the upper arms.
