Brachioplasty (arm lift) surgery is for men and women unhappy with excess sagging skin that droops downward.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through diet and/or exercises.
Brachioplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgery facility. The Traditional Brachioplasty scar runs along the inside of the arm from the armpit to as far as the elbow. In general, you can estimate the length of scar as 3xs longer than every inch of skin removed. For patients needing or desiring less skin removed, the Modified Brachioplasty offers a smaller incision that runs laterally inside the armpit and extends minimally into the upper arm about an inch.
Newport Beach Brachioplasty Consultation
Brachioplasty corrects upper arms which are drooping or sagging - removing excess fat and restoring a sculpted appearance. Patients who feel self-conscious about the arms should consider an brachioplasty procedure. At AestheticsMD in Newport Beach brachioplasty may be the right choice for you. We offer consultations at our facility to help you better understand all your options and the procedures available. Call us today or contact us online to get started.
The smoother, tighter contours that result from brachioplasty surgery are apparent almost immediately following your procedure. Our Newport Beach brachioplasty patients report minimal pain, bruising or swelling. After surgery, your arm(s) may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize any swelling. Internal sutures dissolve and you may shower the next day.
After surgery, any activities that would increase heart rate or blood pressure are strictly prohibited. This would include exercise, lifting, sex, climbing stairs, intense stress, and walking other than getting from point A to B. Many normal activities may resume after two weeks or as instructed by Dr. Anton. Running, fast walking, lifting weights or any other form of exercise are not advised until after 4 weeks or as instructed by Dr. Anton.
During your consultation with Dr. Anton, your areas of concern and surgery options will be discussed. Depending on the amount of skin that needs to be removed to achieve the desired result, you may be a candidate for a traditional brachioplasty or a modified brachioplasty. Often Curved Liposuction is added to an brachioplasty surgery for additional shape and balance.
