Custom Arm Lift surgery in New Jersey
With aging and weight change, the upper arms may develop hanging or loose skin. Understandably, many patients find this undesirable and request information about treatment options like an arm lift, for example. Fortunately, this area can often be improved with several plastic surgical techniques. Liposculpture, skin removal or a combination of techniques may be required for optimal results. Recovery is typically quite short, and most patients report to us only mild discomfort.
Who is a good candidate for an arm lift?
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is an effective way to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms and restore a more toned and youthful appearance. Good candidates for an arm lift are individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight, resulting in loose and sagging skin around the upper arms, or those who have excess skin and fat due to aging. Ideal candidates are in good overall health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.
