Have you lost a lot of weight recently or heredity or time has made your upper arms look as if they have wings?
The arm lift, also known as Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that can reshape the upper arm between the underarm and elbow. Sometimes called “batwings,” excess skin on the upper arms can make many people feel self-conscious, especially when wearing short-sleeve or sleeveless tops.
Aging, heredity or fluctuations in weight may be factors in the drooping and sagging appearance of your arms. While you may routinely diet and exercise, the upper arms can be a challenging area to tighten and tone.
This procedure can improve loose skin and fullness of the arms along with hanging skin in the armpits. Arm Lift surgery from our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Chad Wu, is tailored to address the unique anatomic needs and aesthetic goals of each patient. The arm lift reduces excess skin and fat of the upper arms to provide a smoother, more toned and proportionate appearance. It is also possible for liposuction techniques to be utilized during surgery for optimum results.
