Fat deposits and sagging skin are a common problem as people get older—especially in the upper arms. As we age, our skin starts losing its ability to retain its shape, resulting in baggy skin under the arms. Moreover, fat collects in this area, adding to the unsightly appearance. This extra fat makes the upper arms look out of proportion to the rest of the body.
While exercise and dieting can help you lose excess fat, it can sometimes be difficult and tedious. Also, old and flabby skin cannot spring back on its own. To completely get rid of the disproportionate look of your upper arms, you will need to consider cosmetic surgery. Brachioplasty is an effective procedure that can help you in getting back the shapely upper arms you had when you were young.
At Dr. York Yates Plastic Surgery, we perform brachioplasty procedures with extreme care, using the most advanced techniques and methods. The surgery involves making an incision under the upper arms and then removing the excess fat and skin. We make sure that you do not feel any kind of discomfort during the process.
We offer arm lifts on an outpatient basis, which means that you will be allowed to go home the same day of the surgery. The recovery time after the procedure is about 6 weeks, during which you will have to refrain from exercise and wear a special compression garment. Otherwise, you may continue your general, day-to-day activities, as long as they are not strenuous.
If you want to eliminate the bad look of excess fat and sagging skin on your upper arms, then having brachioplasty surgery at our clinic might be a good option for you.
