Fluctuations in weight, advanced age, and heredity can cause the upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance that cannot be corrected through exercise. Arm lift surgery in Rocky Mount with Dr. Frederick K. Park may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms is sagging or appears loose and full due to excess skin and fat. Women and men who want firmer arm contours visit Dr. Park for arm lift surgery from Greenville, Wilson, Murfreesboro, and Weldon, NC, along with other surrounding cities.
Dr. Park’s Approach:
“Brachioplasty has become more common with the increased popularity of weight loss surgery. This is an operation that truly trades scarring for shape. In most cases, there is a long scar from the armpit to the elbow. This is necessary to remove the excess skin and fat. This results in a much improved shape although the scar is visible with certain arm positions. Patients often tell me that the scar is well worth it, as they feel much less self-conscious about their arm shape.”
What Is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:
- Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
- Tightens and smooths the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
- Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region
Dr. Park may combine arm lift surgery with other procedures such as liposuction and a tummy tuck to address multiple concerns with a single surgery and recovery period.
