Do you have excess skin and fat between your underarm and elbow? Does it look like a hammock? If so, then you should consider scheduling a free consultation with YOUnique Cosmetic Surgery to discuss either liposuction or an arm lift. Brachioplasty, the medical term for an arm lift, helps solve the problem when arm tissue begins to relax and sag, creating a droopy look.
When you meet with Dr. Youssef for a consultation, he carefully considers what will be the best option for you. He is committed to helping you achieve results you'll love.
The procedure to improve the appearance of sagging skin of the arms involves an incision from the elbow to the armpit, and in some cases to the side of the chest. When performing an arm lift for Santa Monica and Los Angeles patients, Dr. Youssef will then tighten the muscles in the upper arm and remove any excess fat and skin, leaving a shaped, contoured upper arm. Dr. Youssef recommends that you schedule a free consultation to discuss your options.
Dr. Youssef performs arm lift for normal weight patients and want a minor tightening of their arms. Most arm lift patients recently had major weight loss who have their weight under control and are in good health. If you have excess skin or fat in your upper arms chances are you are a good candidate for an arm lift near our Hollywood office.
Patients who undergo an arm lift are usually back to work after two to three weeks, but Dr. Youssef advises against heavy lifting for two to six weeks. Upon the completion of your arm lift, you will be given either absorbable sutures or stitches (removed after a week or two), along with substantial dressing to be changed frequently, and also a compression garment to minimize swelling and discomfort.
