Dare to Bare Your Arms This Summer

Posted May 19, 2014 in Arm Lift Surgery, Body Contouring, Uncategorized

Summer is almost here and the weather is warming up, A woman in a green dress and hat facing the ocean with her arms lifted in the airwhich means that it’s about time to break out the sleeveless tops and sundresses. However, many people are hesitant to wear clothing that exposes their arms because of embarrassing excess skin. Those who have lost a large amount of weight are often left with loose, stretched skin in their upper arms, and some people are genetically predisposed with poor skin quality that results in hanging arm skin. Older individuals also frequently experience sagging in the upper arms due to the skin stretching over time.

For patients who want to be comfortable and confident baring their arms this summer, Dr. Taleisnik offers arm lift surgery.

Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, can achieve slender, youthful upper arms. An incision from the armpit to the elbow along the inner arm is used to remove excess skin. For patients who have upper arm sagging due to fat deposits, liposuction can be performed alone or combined with arm lift surgery to achieve lean, beautiful arms.

Arm lift surgery can improve the following conditions:

  • Stretched, sagging skin in the upper arms
  • Loose, hanging skin in the armpits

Most patients are able to return to work within a week of surgery, although some swelling and tightness in the arms may persist for up to two weeks. Exercise can be resumed after two to three weeks, and results will become apparent after four weeks. Dr. Taleisnik can contour your arms to be more slender and attractive just in time for tank tops and summer weather.
