You may be a proud fan of bats. The small, flying mammals help keep the mosquito population down and are a great tourist draw, but it doesn’t mean you want your arms to develop the dreaded bat wings. The sagging excess skin on the upper arms is something most people try to hide from view. Instead of constantly trying to cover up your upper arms, talk to Dr. Anthony Miller at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery in California about the benefits of Brachioplasty.
What is Brachioplasty?
Brachioplasty is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms. It involves making an incision on the back of the arm. After the excess skin and fat are removed, the remaining skin is re-draped and sutured over the arm. It gives your arms a slimmer, more contoured appearance.
Recovering from Brachioplasty is done in stages. You should stay home and rest for one or two weeks to keep your blood pressure down. Slow walks are recommended to encourage blood flow but avoid any strenuous activities and heavy lifting for about six weeks.
What are the Benefits of an Arm Lift?
Some of the benefits clients report after undergoing Brachioplasty include improved confidence. Upper arms are smoother and better defined, so you’ll want to show off your arms. Eliminating the flaps of skin can also improve comfort. You experience less chafing.
