At Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery, we can help you build your confidence and give you the courage to show off your arms!
What Is Arm Lift Surgery & Why Do I Need It?
Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, is a body-lifting procedure that removes excess fat and tightens loose skin of the upper arms between the elbow and shoulder. Most patients undergo brachioplasty after they have lost a significant amount of weight and they have excess skin hanging from their arms. This skin has lost its elasticity and can cause discomfort and be somewhat of an annoyance when it rubs on clothing and interferes with other daily tasks.
Am I a Candidate?
The best candidates for arm lift surgery are men and women who are experiencing excess skin that hangs down from their upper arms. This is often due to losing a significant amount of weight and the skin losing its elasticity. Candidates also need to be in good health with realistic expectations. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Hotchandani is always recommended. At this consultation, you will be able to discuss your concerns as well as your goals. He will examine your arms and determine the best course of action for you, your needs, and your desires at this moment.
What Are the Benefits?
There are many benefits to undergoing arm lift surgery. Besides being able to wear sleeveless shirts and feeling more confident and comfortable in their own skin, patients will also experience these benefits:
- Long-lasting results
- The removal of excess fat and flabby skin
- Smoother, more toned arms
Patients won’t have to worry about choosing the right cover-up or being too hot anymore in shirts with sleeves. They can rejoice in knowing that wearing short sleeve shirts or sleeveless dresses can be a normal thing to get used to and enjoy!
