Patients in Tucson, Arizona, patients may desire an improvement in their arm’s appearance. After meeting weight loss goals, some men and women may notice unwanted sagging arm skin. Other times, they may notice the appearance of excess skin and/or fat obscuring the definition and appearance of their arms. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, can rid the arm of unwanted skin and fat and can create a more defined, firmer look to your arm.
Considering an arm lift procedure? Your overall weight can affect your candidacy. Patients of arm lift surgery might lose their results if they gain weight after their procedure. So, before you opt for your procedure, it is recommended that you have maintained a stable weight for several months. You should also be a nonsmoker, and able to successfully undergo and heal from a surgical procedure. A consultation with Dr. Eades is the best way to determine if an arm lift is right for you.
Tucson’s Dr. Edward Eades, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, uses proven techniques and methods to create the best results possible. An arm lift, performed in the Vail and Green Valley areas, will require inner arm, back of arm, or axillary incisions. Dr. Eades can determine the appropriate incisions for your anatomy and aesthetic goals during your consultation. If unsightly areas of fat are present, liposuction may also be used. Once the fat is removed and underlying tissue is restructured, excess skin is excised, and the incisions are sutured closed.
As you heal from your arm lift procedure, the results of your newly defined and firmer appearance will begin to emerge. Dr. Eades will provide you with specific post-procedure steps, including managing any drains, dressings, and prescribed medications. Your required downtime will depend on the extensiveness of your procdure, but you’ll need to avoid any heavy lifting or activity.
Once you have decided on an arm lift, you can begin the process towards firmer, more defined results. A consultation, scheduled at Dr. Eades’ Tucson office, can give you more information about this procedure. By calling ahead, we can plan a time that best fits your busy schedule. Soon, you can be on your way to enjoying the benefits of an arm lift.
