Arm Lift Tampa Bay

As the body experiences weight fluctuations, the skin relaxes and fatty tissue is deposited in various areas. These problem areas can be difficult to manage even through proper diet and exercise. It is common for the upper arm to develop loose skin and fat which can cause embarrassment and restrict clothing choices, which is particularly troublesome in warm and sunny regions. Brachioplasty, commonly known as an arm lift, is a body contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the upper arms, dramatically improving the appearance and silhouette of the arms. Get the best arm lift Tampa has to offer with TA&PS. Dr. Brown offers top quality plastic surgery Tampa has available and delivers beautiful results.

Brachioplasty Procedure

The type of arm lift used will depend on how much excess skin is present. For patients with minimal excess skin in the upper part of the arm, a short scar arm lift may be used to remove this, keeping the incision well hidden in the upper/inside portion of the arm. For patients with more severe excess skin, a slightly longer incision must be placed along the back or inside of the arm in order to obtain a sleek contour and pretty silhouette. For patients who have experienced significant weight loss, or those who have undergone bariatric surgery, there is a chance that the incision may have to be extended from the arm onto the chest wall, in order to blend the transition between these two.

Combination Procedures

Depending on the skin and tissue quality of the patient, liposuction may be performed alone or in addition to skin excision to achieve the best possible contour during your arm lift procedure in the Tampa Bay area. Dr. Brown tailors a specific treatment to each and every patient.

What To Expect

This surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and if this is the only procedure, patients will go home the same day. Some patients may require an overnight stay if this brachioplasty procedure is combined with other body contouring procedures. A drain may be placed on a case by case basis. Compression garments are typically worn for about 3 weeks. Dr. Brown employs scar therapy to assist with the final appearance of the incisional scars, to truly refine the final result.
