ARE YOU UP IN ARMS OVER YOUR UPPER ARMS?

Dealing with aging and all that goes with it can be daunting.
Just one more thing to add to the list of things that seem different than they did when you were 30 – your upper arms – they may be suddenly saggy and sadly un-firm.

Significant fluctuations in your weight, heredity and aging all play a role, but unfortunately, this is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.

Arm Lift At Keystone Surgery Center, Dr. Kimmel specializes in a surgical procedure designed to reduce saggy underarms. It’s called “arm lift” surgery or brachioplasty. Arm lift surgery can tighten the underlying supportive tissues that define the shape of your upper arms, thereby reducing excess, drooping under arm skin.

If you are of stable weight and are not significantly overweight, have loose upper arm skin, are of good health, a non-smoker and have realistic expectations – you would be a good candidate for arm lift surgery. The procedure takes about two to three hours and is performed at our outpatient surgery center.

If you are considering this procedure, it’s important to understand that there will be a significant scar from your elbow to armpit. However, in most cases, the benefit of removing excess skin outweigh this issue.

  • Following arm lift surgery, your arms will feel sore.
  • You may feel like you have just completed a major workout.
  • You will be given a compression garment to wear to optimize the results of your surgery.
  • There will be minor swelling and bruising which will subside within a few weeks.
  • For most patients, return to routine activities is possible within a week.

During your consultation with Dr. Kimmel, be prepared to discuss your surgical goals, current medications, alcohol and tobacco use, and any pre-existing medical conditions or drug allergies.
Dr. Kimmel will evaluate your general health, discuss your options and discuss the likely outcome of the procedure, including any risks or potential complications.

It’s natural to feel some anxiety about any surgical procedure. We would be happy to address any concerns you may have. Call us for a consultation, today!
