Excess arm skin underneath your upper arm is often the result of weight loss, or simply the natural process of aging. The elasticity of your skin often deteriorates with time and it can be difficult to restore by exercise alone. Those patients who desire a more youthful appearance by correcting sagging arms skin are good candidates for arm lift surgery.
An arm lift procedure, meticulously performed by Dr. Jugenburg, can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your arms by giving you greater contour and improved tone. This can also result in a significant boost to your self-confidence. If you are in good mental and physical health, you may be a good candidate for arm lift surgery.
Also known as brachioplasty, arm lift surgery is a common body contouring procedure, which aims to enhance the appearance of the area under your upper arms (above your elbows). By removing the excess skin and fat in this region, Dr. Jugenburg is able to reduce the circumference of your arms and create a more appealing shape from the elbow to the axilla (armpit). Any incisions made during this procedure will be easily hidden as a result of Dr. Jugenburg’s precise surgical techniques.
Following arm lift surgery, you will have to allow to a period of recovery. This is common with any cosmetic surgery procedure. You will likely be able to go home a few hours after surgery but this does imply that you are ready to hit the gym. Your activity will have to be limited but you can usually resume light activities within the first week. There is commonly bruising, swelling and minor discomfort after braichioplasty but these will subside if you follow the postoperative guidelines provided by Dr. Jugenburg. Remember that the healing process is gradual. But your patience will be rewarded by the beautiful results!
The results of an arm lift are amazing! You will have a tightened and toned contour to your upper arms and will be more confident and comfortable in clothing, especially short sleeves and tight-fitting clothes. You will already have a more natural and presentable appearance in the first week after surgery and this will improve dramatically over the next 3 to 6 months.
