Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
Loose sagging skin on the upper arms causes a condition known commonly as “bat wings.” Men and women who have this problem feel embarrassed when they wear certain types of clothing. An arm lift removes the excess skin and fat to give the upper arms a toned appearance. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers brachioplasty to men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is Brachioplasty?
If you are bothered by loose, sagging skin on your upper arms, Modesto, California, plastic surgeon Dr. Lars Enevoldsen can help. An arm lift procedure (or brachioplasty) improves the appearance of your upper arms by reducing or eliminating the excess skin and fatty tissue that causes you embarrassment or discomfort.
Loose skin or fat deposits in your upper arms can be the result of weight loss, genetics, or aging. Although exercise may tone the underlying arm muscles, you may have fat deposits, lack of skin elasticity, or weakened tissues that resist traditional weight-loss and muscle-toning methods. If this is the case for you, surgery can correct the issue and give you firmer, slimmer upper arms.
Benefits of an Arm Lift
Arm lift plastic surgery has helped many men and women in central California who were embarrassed by loose or sagging skin under the arms. Sometimes, Dr. Enevoldsen performs liposuction of the upper arms to enhance the result of your arm lift. He will discuss all of your options with you during your personal consultation.
After your arm lift, you may find that clothes fit better with your newly toned arms. Your confidence may improve, renewing your self-esteem and enhancing your sense of personal freedom.
How Does Brachioplasty Work?
An arm lift restores the shape of your upper arm by surgically removing the excess fat and skin.
What to Expect from an Arm Lift
The incision for brachioplasty extends from your elbow to the armpit on the inside of the arm, so you will have a significant scar. After making the incision, Dr. Enevoldsen pulls the skin and fat tightly over the arm, cuts away the excess and closes the incision. He may use liposuction to carefully remove smaller amounts of fat.
