Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that is used to help remove the excess skin and fatty tissue from the axilla and upper arm. Brachioplasty is not a surgical treatment for being overweight. Obese individuals who intend to lose weight should postpone all forms of body contouring surgery until they have reached a stable weight. Dr. Lam will evaluate you, and together create a plan to achieve your goals of weight loss and recontouring of the arm via brachioplasty.
There are a variety of different techniques utilized by Dr. Lam for brachioplasty, individualized to each patient. Brachioplasty can be combined with other body contouring procedures. The risks of brachioplasty include those expected with any surgical incision.
