Your arm skin may sag as you grow older, if you’ve lost a lot of weight, or you may have a genetic predisposition to store fat in the upper arm area. This may cause embarrassment or damage your self-esteem. Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. DeLozier uses brachioplasty to tighten loose skin under your arms. Arm lift cosmetic surgery won’t just reduce the size of your upper arms, you’ll experience a boost in your self-confidence as a direct result of your brachioplasty plastic surgery procedure.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, procedure with Dr. DeLozier at DeLozier Cosmetic Surgery Center in Nashville will reshape the underside of your upper arm. Your arm lift procedure will be performed under general anesthesia for your safety and comfort. Dr. DeLozier will make an incision from your underarm to the elbow. He will reduce or remove saggy, excess skin, tighten the tissue that defines your arm shape, and reduce localized fat pockets in your upper arm. Though our surgeons use a short-scar technique with many patients, some scarring is unavoidable. However, your scar will improve and fade over time.
Following surgery, Dr. DeLozier may apply dressings or bandages to your incisions. Your arms may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling.
After your arm lift cosmetic surgery procedure at DeLozier Cosmetic Surgery Center, you can finally wear sleeveless dresses and tank tops! You won’t have to be shy of lifting your arms above your head in front of others or waving to a friend. Your arms will be more toned and proportionate to the rest of your body. Clothes will now better fit your upper body. Now you can dance with a partner and clap at a performance with ease and confidence.
