Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Having a good self image is something everyone wants. Yet if you have a body part that is bothering you, particularly your biceps, then an arm lift could help.

When people think of improving their looks, many times the biceps are the last area they would think of. Yet if this part of your body is one of your least favorite areas, then an arm lift from a qualified surgeon could be right for you. Examine five common reasons you may want to see a plastic surgeon.

You’re tired of having wings

Many women are annoyed with their flabby biceps or wings. If you wave goodbye and notice your biceps are still moving long after you’ve stopped moving, you may need additional help from a skilled surgeon. Getting an arm lift can be life-changing. Once you get this procedure done, you no longer have to be afraid of waving goodbye again.

You’re weight lifting without success

Getting in shape is a great way to look and feel your best. Yet if your biceps are not in the best condition, weight lifting can help. However, for some people, weight lifting is not enough. And if you find that your biceps are never getting any tighter then you may need to see a doctor for an arm lift.

You’re tired of covering up

Trying to find something to wear each day to hide your flabby biceps can be an ongoing headache. And if you are wanting a solution to your problem, then surgery can help. Your doctor will be able to surgically tighten your biceps and this way, you will feel comfortable wearing just about any outfit you see.

You’re healthy

No matter who you are, getting an arm lift via surgery is a big deal and you have to be in good health. That means, before the procedure, you need to stop smoking, have a physical and be healthy overall. The doctor cannot operate on you if your body is not in prime condition for surgery. So if you want to look and feel better about your appearance, be sure to take care of your body from the inside first, then the doctor can take care of the outside.

You have extra skin from weight loss

Losing a large amount of weight quickly is a major accomplishment. However, sometimes you’re left with a bunch of excess skin. If you realize you have skin that is not shrinking, particularly on your upper body, you may need an arm lift.

Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)

An arm lift surgery, or otherwise known as brachioplasty, can remove the excess skin and fat deposits, leaving the upper arms with a more pleasing and youthful contour. As a person ages, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby.

Plastic surgeons will consult with patients about undergoing surgery for an arm lift if they wish to tighten this skin to look and feel more youthful. The incision extends from the elbow to the underarm, and sometimes on to the side of the chest.

In some instances, your plastic surgeon may recommend that liposuction be used alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms.
