Upper Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Arm Lift Surgery in Tampa
Losing a large amount of weight is a huge accomplishment and will yield amazing health and lifestyle benefits. Don’t be discouraged by excess skin along your arms. Take the final step in reshaping your body and tone your arms with an upper arm lift.
Arm lift surgery with Tampa board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Castor can help to reduce excess skin along your upper arms. Dr. Castor has helped many of his patients achieve slim and youthful contours with arm lift surgery.
Is an Arm Lift Right for Me?
Arm lift surgery is most common with men and women who have lost a large amount of weight and are struggling with excess, hanging skin. However, other factors such as age or genetics can cause skin along the upper arms to sag. Like the tummy tuck, the goal of the arm lift is to achieve a firm, taut appearance through the reshaping of the underlying tissue and removal of excess skin.
This surgery is not intended for the removal of excess fat, but Dr. Castor may recommend supplementing your arm lift with a liposuction procedure for the best results. In some cases, if you are still looking to lose some weight, it may be best to delay surgery.
How is an Arm Lift Performed?
To begin your arm lift, Dr. Castor will make an incision on the underside of your arm, extending from near your armpit to your elbow. From there, he can reshape the underlying tissue and remove any excess. The skin is then re-draped over your arm for a tighter, natural looking contour. Dr. Castor will then remove any excess skin before closing your incisions.
Following your surgery, there will be a faint scar. Dr. Castor’s patients are often thrilled with their results and the new shape of their arms.
