Arm lift plastic surgery (brachioplasty) is a body contouring procedure that can be part of “Mommy Makeover” or used with other body lift procedures. The procedure intends to remove the excess loose skin and fat under the upper arm, which can be a result of weight loss or aging, and is not reducible by exercise. The final goal is to improve the appearance of the arms for a firmer, more youthful look. As always at Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC, every brachioplasty, or arm lift, is personalized to the patient.
Dr. Aleksandr Shteynberg is a double board certified plastic surgeon who has performed many lift surgeries with incredible results, including arm lift plastic surgery. Every brachioplasty patient receives a personalized treatment plan to address their specific concerns. There are various methods that can be used to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms to firm and tighten the area. Liposuction may be combined with the surgical removal of stretched, sagging skin to create the desired effect. Dr. Shteynberg will discuss which techniques will be best for each patient to obtain the best outcome.
Are You a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?
The sagging skin and tissue on the upper arms are common with aging or after excessive weight loss. Often called “bat wings,” many people hide their upper arms under longer sleeves due to their swinging upper area. If you have hanging skin on your upper arms that cannot be toned or tightened with exercise, arm lift surgery may be right for you. Patients should be healthy, non-smokers for the best results.
Brachioplasty can reshape and firm the upper arms for a more youthful, firm appearance. Patients can enjoy the confidence to wear sleeveless outfits again without worrying about how their arms look. The incisions can be carefully and discreetly placed to make them difficult to see or notice.
If you have excess skin on your upper arms and want your bat wings removed, contact us at Vantage Plastic Surgery today to book your appointment. We can schedule a private consultation with Dr. Shteynberg at our clinic in Manhattan or Brooklyn to discuss arm lift plastic surgery.
