Brachioplasty in Cary and Fayetteville, NC
If you are trying to achieve firm, toned arms but have not noticed results from regular diet and exercise, you may want to consider a brachioplasty at Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics. We offer brachioplasties to men and women living in Fayetteville, Lumberton, Cary and the surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is a Brachioplasty?
A brachioplasty, commonly referred to as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure that gives the arms a youthful lift by eliminating sagging skin and excess fat. Arm lifts target the upper arm, removing skin and fat on the underside of the arm to create a firmer, toned appearance. Since this is not a weight loss procedure, it is best suited for patients who are around their ideal weight and are simply looking to remove excess skin and small, stubborn deposits of fat to improve the contours of the arm.
What Can I Expect from the Brachioplasty Procedure?
The arm lift procedure is performed with the aid of general anesthesia to ensure the safety and comfort of each patient. During the procedure, an incision is typically made along the underside of the arm, stretching from the armpit to the elbow. We minimize the size of incisions whenever possible to eliminate excessive scarring and accelerate recovery. Once the incision is made, we remove excess skin and fat from the arms, creating a firmer, lifted appearance. This procedure can take up to three hours, depending on the desired results.
What is Recovery Like Following a Brachioplasty?
After your brachioplasty procedure, Ace wraps will be used for the first 7-10 days to minimize swelling. All sutures are placed beneath the skin surface, so there is no suture removal afterwards. Patients may need assistance performing normal activities over the days following treatment, as it will be difficult to raise the arms. It is important that patients rest following their treatment, although most are able to return to work and other non-strenuous activities within approximately two weeks.
