Arm Lift Palm Desert
Brachioplasty also known as an arm lift, can remove the excess skin and fat deposits, leaving the upper arms with a more pleasing and youthful shape. As we get older, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Dr. Quardt will consult with her patients about undergoing surgery for an arm lift if they wish to tighten this skin to look and feel more youthful. The incision extends from the elbow to the underarm, and sometimes on to the side of the chest. In some instances, Dr. Quardt may recommend that liposuction be used alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms.
Who is a good candidate for an arm lift?
Arm Lift surgery can be performed on a large variety of patients including normal weight patients who simply need a little tightening. However the majority of patients are massive weight loss patients that have stabilized their weight loss and do not have out of control medical problems. They present with excess skin and fat in their upper arms. Many of these patients complain that their arms feel and look like “bat wings”. During your consultation with Dr. Quardt she will discuss whether or not you are a good candidate for the brachioplasty procedure. Occasionally some older women have a lot of extra skin that is bothersome and would also be reasonable candidates.
