Are You Tired of Carrying Around Excess, Sagging Arm Skin?
It’s not uncommon when aging, or after significant weight loss, to experience stretched, loose skin in the arms. Understandably, this can lead to being uncomfortable with your appearance and even general feelings of unhappiness due to diminished self-confidence.
Get Back in Short Sleeves Again!
When it comes to excess skin under the arms, there’s often amount of exercise or diet that will help you tighten up. Thankfully, Dr. Mariam Awada offers a solution that will help restore your confidence and have you back in short sleeves in no time. With an arm lift, or brachioplasty, you’ll get tighter skin and smoother supportive tissue giving you a defined upper arm that you’ll be excited to show off.
What Exactly is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift consists of a 2 to 3-hour procedure where excess skin is removed from the upper arm. A series of incisions will be made in the upper arm and bicep groove and excess skin will be removed, giving your arms a toned, smooth appearance.
What About the Other Areas of My Body?
Frequently, our patients choose to combine the arm lift procedure with other skin tightening procedures to improve their overall body contour. Operations such as tummy tucks, thigh lifts, and breast lifts target loose skin in other areas of the body. If you’ve experienced significant weight loss, or are simply experiencing the affects of aging, these areas are typically the most effected. By tackling all these areas at once, you can avoid having to return for multiple procedures.
How Long is the Recovery?
After around 7 to 10 days from your procedure, you should be able to return to your normal routine, as long as you avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activities. You can expect some bruising and swelling, depending on how much skin was removed. After four weeks, you’ll be back to normal!
