Do you suffer from sagging skin underneath your arms? Sagging skin on your arms can be unsightly and affect your self-confidence. Exercise and a healthy diet alone may not be enough to solve the problem. Arm lift surgery, known as brachioplasty, can tighten sagging skin on men and women for a more defined shape.
Arm Lift Surgery Procedure
Arm lift surgery is a cosmetic outpatient procedure that is typically performed while using general anesthesia. It can take between one to three hours to complete and be combined with liposuction to remove any fat deposits. Incisions are placed under the arm to minimize the appearance of scars. The majority of people can resume normal activities within six weeks. Compression garments may need to be worn for a few weeks in order to aid the healing process.
