Many people store excess fat near their underarms or experience sagging skin on their upper arms. If you can relate to either of those issues, brachioplasty may be the answer for you. Contact us today at Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Waltham, MA, today if you are seeking to restore the youthfulness back to your arms in the Boston area.
What Is Brachioplasty?
Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is the removal of excess fat and skin from the upper arms in order to give them a more toned and youthful appearance. Some people are genetically disposed to accumulating fat around their upper arms while others may notice that their skin begins to sag in these areas as they age. An arm lift can fix this by removing skin and fat tissue that is unnecessary.
How Does It Work?
After a brief consultation with our team in the Boston area, a date for the procedure will be arranged. Before the procedure begins, our team will administer anesthetics and sedatives in order to provide you with a comfortable experience. The procedure will begin with a member of our team making a small incision on the upper arm and using liposuction to remove excess fat. The skin will then be trimmed, tightened, and sutured back together. In the case that there is fat stored near the underarm, very small incisions will be used to gain access to and remove the fat.
The whole process takes between one to three hours, and the sites of the incisions normally heal after one to two weeks. Because this is a minor procedure, you may able to return home on the same day as the surgery. Our qualified Massachusetts team will help you plan for all of the proper pre and post-care.
What Are the Benefits of Brachioplasty?
The most important benefit of an arm lift is the confidence and youthfulness you can experience. Because many people are self-conscious about their looks, the improvements to one’s appearance that brachioplasty achieves leaves them feeling much better and happier with themselves. You can expect to feel younger with a boost to your self-esteem.
Am I A Good Candidate For Treatment?
Anyone with hanging skin or extra fat on their upper arms who cannot get rid of it through proper dieting and exercise may be a great candidate. Due to genetics and the aging process, not everyone is able to avoid these circumstances. An arm lift is sometimes the only way to treat these conditions.
