ARM LIFT (BRACHIOPLASTY)

This procedure addresses issues patients have when there is fat and skin that causes the arms to be flabby—this is often referred to as “batwings” for the shape it takes on the body. Flabby arms can be a source of discomfort and handicap. Exercise and diet can help reduce the size of the arms, but it may leave loose skin that just won’t retract or go away. The arm lift technique is used to remove the loose and bothersome skin in order to provide a better contour. It is often combined with liposuction to help decrease the amount of fatty tissue and provide a gradual contour to the arms.

The incision for this procedure is well placed and will be discussed with you during your initial consultation with Dr. Deigni. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes two to three hours
