The upper arms are one of those dreaded “trouble spots” of our bodies, which just do not seem to budge or progress, regardless of our well-intentioned efforts for a well balanced diet and exercise. An arm lift (also referred to as brachioplasty) consists of several coordinating cosmetic methods, which are used toward slimming, sculpting, and tightening the appearance of the upper arm. These techniques result in beautifully toned, sculpted looking arms that you can admire and flaunt with confidence.
Women who find themselves to be dissatisfied with the appearance of their upper arms generally experience one or more of the following attributes:
- Lacking tone and/or definition
- Unattractively jiggles or sags
- Bulky and off balance with the rest of one’s figure
- Exhibits a surplus of loose skin
Dr. Prichard’s goal is to provide his patients with arms that are toned and elegant looking, by performing among the best arm lifts.
About the procedure
There are a number of effective rejuvenating procedures for improving the appearance of your arms. Routinely, upper arm procedures involve a strategically placed incision along the inside of the upper arm, so that any scarring may be fairly inconspicuous once you’ve healed. The length of the incision is determined by the extent of revising and reshaping that you wish for. In some cases, liposuction can be implemented to enhance the appearance of the upper arm. Your upper arm surgery can be performed in conjunction with other coordinating procedures, or by itself. If you suffer from excessive skin on your arms and other areas of your body due to extreme weight loss, plastic surgery after weight loss may offer you more thorough results with little downtime for recovery. Dr. Prichard aims to provide among the best arm lifts.
After your arm lift surgery, the treated areas are properly wrapped so as to minimize swelling. Ice packs may be used to help manage any pain, bruising, and swelling. Generally, Dr. Prichard’s arm lift patients are able to return to work and most other daily routines somewhere within several days up to a week.
