Arm Lift in Sarasota

Print This PageEmail this Page

As the human body ages and experiences weight fluctuations, the skin relaxes and fatty tissue is deposited in various parts of the body. These problem areas can be difficult to manage even through proper diet and exercise. It is common for the upper arm area to develop loose skin and fat which can cause embarrassment and restrict clothing choices. Brachioplasty, often called an arm lift, at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is a body contouring process that removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the upper arms. Artistic and anatomical removal of this tissue can result in an improved appearance and silhouette.

It is important to understand that an arm lift is not a cure for obesity, and is most appropriate for persons with localized fat bulges and excess skin which are inherited, and remain, despite weight reduction and exercise.

Are You a Good Candidate?

To be a good candidate for any plastic surgery, you must have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for you. It's important to understand that arm lift surgery can enhance your appearance and self-confidence but, like all plastic surgery, it is not going to solve underlying emotional issues you may have. Always think carefully about your expectations and discuss any concerns you have with your surgeon.
