There are some things in your teens up until around your forties that you take for granted. As you age, your skin starts to lose elasticity and your body stores fat in more unusual places. If you have noticed that your arms wave back at you when you wave at others, you may want to consider getting an arm lift. But what is an arm lift? What is recovery like? And what kinds of results will you see? This article will discuss three things for you to know about an arm lift. Read on to learn more.
What Is An Arm Lift?
An arm lift or a Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that Dr. Kenneth Dembny performs to get rid of stubborn fat and excess skin on your upper arms. During this surgical procedure, the medial portion of your arm will be reshaped, tissue will be tightened and smoothed, and any excess sagging will be reduced. Depending on the area of your arm that is being targeted, an incision will be made from the underarm to the elbow. Once the incision is made, excess fat is removed with liposuction. The underlying skin tissue will then be removed and reshaped while the overlying skin will be smoothed and tightened.
What Is Recovery Like?
Because a Brachioplasty is a relatively invasive surgical procedure, you will need to ensure that you give your arms an ample amount of time to heal and recover. For the first week or two after surgery, you will be encouraged to wear compression sleeves over your incisions to help ease any pain and inflammation. Additionally, you should refrain from heavy lifting, exercise, or any strenuous activities while you are in recovery.
What Kinds of Results Will You Get?
Even though you will have some swelling immediately after surgery, you will be able to notice visibly smaller results. Once the inflammation has gone down, you will be astonished by how much skinnier your arms are and how much tighter the skin is.
