Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) in Atlanta, GA
Nothing is more embarrassing than having loose skin and fat hanging from your upper arms. Unfortunately, exercising may not help because your skin does not have enough elasticity. Brachioplasty may be a better solution. At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer arm lifts for men and women in Lawrenceville, Suwanee, Johns Creek, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is Brachioplasty?
The upper arm area can be challenging if you have excess fat and sagging skin. You may be able to tone the muscles, but the results are shrouded in soft tissue. Brachioplasty is a type of plastic surgery that gives the upper arms a more contoured and youthful appearance. For some patients BodyTite™ can be a nonsurgical solution for reducing excess skin in the arms.
What Are the Benefits of an Arm Lift?
- Eliminates embarrassing “bat wings”
- Restores natural contours
- Helps you feel more comfortable in short sleeve and sleeveless attire
What Should I Expect from My Brachioplasty?
The incision for an arm lift extends from the elbow to the arm pit area. It is made on the inside of the arm so that it is not obvious in most situations.
People will be able to see the scar when you lift your arm, but this is much more manageable than skin and fat hanging from the area. Some activity restrictions are needed as you recover, and we will provide details during your consultation.
About NonSurgical Brachioplasty
Some patients may be eligible for nonsurgical brachioplasty with BodyTite™ , which utilizes technology known as radio frequency assisted lipolysis to gently heat and destroy fat cells and shrink skin. We can discuss if nonsurgical brachioplasty is ideal for you during your consultation.
How Long Do the Results Last?
If you continue to live a healthy lifestyle, your upper arms should stay toned and contoured. Aging does have an effect, though, so we do not say that the results are permanent.
How Much Does an Arm Lift Cost in Atlanta, GA?
The cost of surgery varies by patient based on several factors. During your initial consultation, our team will discuss the cost of your procedure and share information about our financing options.
