Extra skin underneath the arms makes a lot of people feel self-conscious. Whether this is a natural reflection of the aging process or a result of extreme weight loss, loose skin under the arms presents a big cosmetic problem that brachioplasty can address. Keep reading to learn more about this procedure and how it can help tighten your skin:
What It Targets
The main focus of a brachioplasty is to get rid of skin that sags downward and ruins the aesthetic appeal of the body. By tightening the supportive tissue in the arm, the surgeon can reshape and change the entire aesthetic of the upper body. This surgery can also target stubborn fat pockets to smooth out the arm.
How It Works
If you opt for this procedure, the plastic surgeon makes small incisions underneath the arm and near the armpit. The doctor removes the extra fat and skin and often uses liposuction to really tighten the area. The operation does leave a scar, but it is in a place that is not very visible after you finish the recovery period.
What to Expect from Your Recovery
This procedure is minimally invasive, which means that you will be able to walk out of the surgery center once it is complete. You should walk at least three to four times per day to enhance your recovery. Swelling and bruising is normal after the procedure. Some patients experience more pain during the recovery period than others, but some discomfort is expected in the weeks after the procedure. The recovery period lasts about two weeks and you should avoid heavy lifting or too much strain during this time.
If you are ready to get rid of extra skin under your arms, schedule a consultation with Barbara L. Persons, MD and the team at Persons Plastic Surgery.
