Beverly Hills Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)
Dr. Fiouz is a double board-certified plastic surgeon with vast experience in breast and body procedures such as arm reductions and Beverly Hills arm lift surgery.
Arm lift surgery is a procedure for patients who wish to tighten their arm skin and reduce sagging. Upper arm tissue relaxes and descends with aging, gravity, and weight loss. The drooping of skin is from a stretching of the anchoring fascial system and loss of supporting fat. The extra sagging can result in significant “loose hammock” like deformity from the axilla to the elbow.
There are different degrees of ptosis (drooping). Brachioplasty (arm reduction surgery) can remove the excess tissue and reduce the circumference of the upper arm. Surgical correction depends on the amount of extra skin and how loose the supporting tissues have become. Extra skin is removed from incisions placed along the inner arm or in the axilla. The incision must be placed where the tissue can be best tightened.
About Beverly Hills Arm Lift Surgery
The most common incision extends from the elbow to the axilla. This permits the excision to maximally address redundant skin in the middle of the arm. Modification of the incision may be necessary to limit scar contracture in the axilla. Smaller excisions allow modificatoin of the incision with shorter scars.
Surgical sculpture involves not just the superficial skin, but also the deeper attachments that have loosened. Patients who have gained and lost large amounts of weight are the best candidates for this procedure. The surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia in the office or hospital setting.
