Many adults are embarrassed when it comes to revealing their arms. This is due to a problem with sagging skin, which can be the result of age, weight loss, and even genetics. For some, showing their arms while on vacation or during the summer is not an option because they don’t want others seeing the sagging areas of the skin. However, this is a problem that can be easily eliminated with an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, with Dr. Kullamaa.
What Is Brachioplasty?
Brachioplasty is a procedure where excess skin that causes sagging around the upper arms is lifted. This is achieved through the removal of tissue so that the arms are more toned and slender. The procedure lifts the arms through the tissue removal and then tones and tightens the arms for a more contoured appearance. You can learn more about the procedure by contacting us today.
How Does the Process Work?
In general, this procedure takes one to two hours to complete and it is carried out under an anesthetic. As part of the process, an incision is made at the back or under the upper arm so that the excess fat and skin can be removed.
After this, contouring of the supporting tissue is carried out in order to shape and tone the arms. Once this is done, the incision is stitched up and bandaged so that the healing process can take place.
Who Is the Right Candidate for Brachioplasty?
Brachioplasty is a procedure that can help anyone with excess skin around the upper arm. If you have lost significant amounts of weight, you may find that the skin around the upper arms has started to sag. Likewise, the skin in this area can start to sag as you get older or as a result of genetics.
No matter what the cause of the excess skin around the upper arms, this procedure can help to create a far more toned appearance.
