Arm Lift / Brachioplasty in Kalamazoo at Parkway Plastic Surgery
Whether you have experienced fluctuations in weight, are getting older, or have a hereditary predisposition, unflattering upper arm skin can be impossible to manage without surgery. Exercise can help improve the arm’s muscle tone but will not address the excess skin that has lost elasticity, the underlying weakened tissues or localized fat deposits.
Arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces drooping and sagging excess skin and soft tissue from the armpit to the elbow, tightens and smooths the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm, and reduces localized pockets of fat.
Indications: Excess skin laxity of the skin of the upper arm
Goal/Result: Smoother, tighter contours of the upper arm
Anesthesia: General anesthesia
Recovery to Full Function: 10 to 14 days
