Brachioplasty, often called an arm lift, recontours the arms for a more trim appearance. During your arm lift surgery in Tracy, California, excessive skin is removed, sometimes in conjunction with a liposuction procedure to remove fat from the arms. For removal of large amounts of skin, an incision is required that runs from near the elbow to the armpit. The incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location (inner arm toward the back) but some scarring will always be visible.  More moderate skin removal is sometimes possible with a smaller incision, which is limited to the armpit area to try to keep the scar better hidden. This procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia.

Body Contouring Post Weight Loss Surgery

Following significant weight loss, including that achieved by diet, exercise, gastric bypass, or gastric banding, the patient typically has significant areas of skin excess. This commonly includes excess skin of the abdomen, breasts, arms, and thighs. Plastic surgeons can address these problems with many different potential options, including tummy tuck, breast reduction (or in the case of males, gynecomastia excision), upper arm lift, medial thigh lift, lower body lift and breast lift. These patients may also be candidates for other procedures including liposuction and facelift. Please feel free to contact us and we will discuss the various surgical options to optimize your appearance following weight loss.
