What is an Upper Arm Lift?
An upper arm lift, also called brachioplasty, is a surgical body contouring procedure that rids the excess sagging skin around the arm often called a "batwing." Those who experience sagging skin or a lack of tightness in the upper arm can significantly improve the appearance of their arms with this procedure. From the underarm region to the elbow, this procedure addresses irregular fat deposits to lift and reshape the underside of the upper arm. Sagging and drooping can be the result of heredity, significant weight loss, or changing skin elasticity with age. Even those who have improved their health with dieting and consistent exercise are often frustrated to find that their excess skin under their arms is not addressed by these lifestyle changes. Fortunately, brachioplasty is designed to target this unsightly and persistent problem.
How Much Does an Upper Arm Lift Cost in Cleveland, OH?
The cost of your upper arm lift is going to depend on the extent of the procedure needed to help you achieve your desired results. Dr. Husni will go over the details of your upper arm lift including its overall cost during the time of your private consultation. At Neo Aesthetic Institute, we are happy to offer financing options that allow you the comfort and convenience of paying for your procedure at your leisure.
How do I Prepare for my Upper Arm Lift?
A thorough medical evaluation is necessary before your upper arm lift surgery, including medical history and a list of your current medications. Anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, and many other over-the-counter medications should not be taken prior to your upper arm lift. During your consultation with Dr. Husni, you will learn about the important steps to take in preparation for your brachioplasty procedure. Since it is an outpatient surgery, you should arrange to have a ride home and someone looking after you for the first night following your surgery. In addition to welcoming the support that your family and friends offer, we encourage you to take advantage of our resources to learn as much as possible about the procedure beforehand. Understanding the processes involved in surgery and recovery can help you take the necessary steps to experience improved results.
What Can I Expect During my Upper Arm Lift?
General anesthesia and sedation are both options available for patients undergoing an upper arm lift or brachioplasty at the Neo Aesthetic Institute. An incision will be made on the inner arm, the back of the arm, or in the underarm region, depending upon what Dr. Husni decides is best for your specific needs and desired results. Smaller incisions may be enough, however, it may be necessary for the incision to reach from the underarm to just above the elbow. Through these incisions, your underlying tissues can be tightened, and fat removal methods like liposuction may be used to reshape the contour of the arm. Stitches or absorbable sutures may be used to close the incisions.
What Can I Expect During my Upper Arm Lift Recovery?
In addition to sutures, many patients will be provided compression garments to minimize swelling, and some will require having small tubes temporarily placed into the treated area to drain excess fluid during recovery. We strongly encourage you to ask questions about the timeline for recovery, including dates when bandages should be changed and when to return for a follow-up appointment. Oral medication should be taken as prescribed, and other instructions for keeping the site clean and bandaged should be followed for optimal results and minimized scarring. While some mild scarring can be expected as a result of a more extensive arm lift procedure, the scarring may be less noticeable when aftercare instructions are carefully followed. As providers of medical-grade skin care products, the staff at the Neo Aesthetic Institute is acutely aware of the importance of minimizing scarring and techniques to improve your end results.
Am I a Good Candidate for an Upper Arm Lift?
Arm lift surgery is best for adults who maintain a relatively stable and healthy weight. Major weight loss is one of the most common reasons why people inquire about body contouring and arm lift procedures, but a person who is in the process of losing weight should wait until the target weight is reached for lasting results. As with any surgery, smoking and taking certain medical conditions can impair healing or increase the risk of complications. Dr. Husni believes in making the long-term health of his patients his top priority.
At the Neo Aesthetic Institute, we provide a variety of body contouring procedures to patients on a regular basis, helping us to better understand the priorities of our patients and the best surgical procedures for targeting different areas. If you are interested in the body contouring procedures but unsure about surgery, we have a wide selection of treatment options that include CoolSculpting®, which does not require surgery or injections. A consultation with Dr. Husni is the best way to assess whether you would be a good candidate for an upper arm lift or another cosmetic procedure.
