Arm Lift Scottsdale & Phoenix, AZ
Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure performed to remove the loose, hanging skin that often develops on the underside of the upper arm as a result of aging, weight loss or weight gain. Brachioplasty is ideal for patients who have an excessive amount of hanging skin and/or fat that does not respond to diet and exercise; maintain a stable weight; and have realistic expectations for surgery. Patients must also be healthy overall, with no major medical conditions that can be affected by surgery.
The Brachioplasty Procedure
Dr. Ong performs the liposuction-assisted brachioplasty procedure with the scar hidden in the back of the arm. Excess fat is removed, and the arm is sculpted by liposuction. The excess skin is removed , and internal sutures are placed. No drains are needed, and a compression garment is placed. Brachioplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia. Patients are able to return home the same day as surgery.
