About arm lift plastic surgery with Dr. Yily De los Santos

The brachioplasty is a procedure treats sagging arms, reduces excess skin and adipose tissue. This plastic surgery is recommended after a massive weight loss that causes excess sagging skin, also caused by fast aging of the skin.

A scar on the lower arm portion is done and usually goes from the armpit to the elbow, may be shorter. This procedure is usually combined with other interventions like liposculpture, tummy tuck among others.

When to Consider an Upper Arm Lift

  • If your weight is normal, but you feel your shape is marred by underarm laxity.
  • If you have lost a massive amount of weight and are left with excess upper-arm skin and fat that may resemble bat wings.
  • If you are willing to accept a scar in exchange for shapelier arms.

Considerations

Pros

  • You will look much better in form-fitting clothes.
  • You will have increased confidence and a better self-image.
  • You will be able to wear short-sleeve or sleeveless clothing without feeling self-conscious.

Cons

  • You will have visible scars along the insides of your arms, extending from the armpit to the elbow.
  • If your sagging underarm skin is not excessive, an upper arm lift may not be worth the resulting scars (in this case, consider limited-incision brachioplasty or liposuction).
  • Your surgeon will not be able to predict exactly how your scars will look.
