The skin on the upper arm droops and loosens as a person ages or loses significant weight. One can enhance muscular tone with exercise, but the loose, sagging skin cannot be restored. To solve this problem, Recon Plastic Surgery Centre, Hubli, offers an arm lift procedure that helps in contouring the arm.
Arm fat, also known as bat wings, is a common problem area for many men and women. It is a build-up of excess fat in the upper arms. This can be due to weight gain, aging, or genetics.
Arm fat can be unsightly and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. It can also lead to health problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that can help to address this issue.
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes and contours the upper arms.
The procedure helps to excise the skin that does not respond well to diet or exercise. Both thin and heavy individuals can be good candidates for an arm lift. Sagging skin can occur as a result of aging, but younger patients may also seek an arm lift procedure due to genetics or recent weight loss.
Standard Brachioplasty: The standard technique of brachioplasty or arm lift is performed on the backside of the arm so as to reduce visibility. The skin is redraped, tightened, and closed with stitches after the necessary amount of sagging excess skin and fat has been removed. The scar will not be visible from the front view and will fade over time.
Extended Brachioplasty: In this technique, the L-shaped incision begins at the elbow and extends down the arm to the base of the armpit. The skin on the underarm, as well as the skin on the sides of the chest, is excised and tightened. This technique is ideal for those who have recently lost a lot of weight since there is only so much natural skin tightening can achieve.
Mini Brachioplasty: A mini brachioplasty or arm lift is performed on individuals who just require minor assistance in sagging underarm skin. The incision is significantly smaller than a standard or extended brachioplasty, and it’s hidden beneath the armpit.
The ideal candidate for an arm lift is one who is experiencing sagging, drooping skin on the underarms or armpit area but is unable to tone them through exercising, is in good physical health, has a stable body weight relative to body structure and height, has realistic expectations with the surgery, and is bothered by the appearance of the upper arms.Book Appointment
