Arm Lift: How is it performed?
Arm lift is a surgical procedure designed to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits from the upper arm. With age, upper arm skin can become flabby. Dr. DeMars often discusses brachioplasty with patients who wish to tighten the excess skin of their upper arms in order to look as good and energetic on the outside as they feel on the inside. In some cases, Dr. DeMars suggests that his arm lift patients undergo arm lift in conjunction with liposuction in order to achieve the best possible results. The use of liposuction techniques allows him to remove excess fatty tissue deposits from the patients’ upper arms, thus enhancing the skin-tightening effect of arm lift.
Dr. DeMars understands that a patient’s health condition, skin appearance, and cosmetic needs vary, which is why he works closely with each patient to develop a customized treatment plan. He might suggest a different combination of procedures for each patient. For example, certain patients require not only arm lift but also thigh lift and tummy tuck to achieve the best possible body contouring results.
