If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, you might still be dealing with some loose skin, especially on your arms. At Cosmetic Surgery Hawaii, we understand that you might feel self-conscious about the loose skin on your arms, and tightening or eliminating it is at the top of your list. With any cosmetic plastic surgery, it’s important to know what your goals are, and what results you should expect. With an arm lift, or brachioplasty, you’ll no longer have to worry about loose or sagging skin on your underarms.
Older techniques for arm lifts involved long incisions that left noticeable scars. These scars often took a long time to heal, and patients might experience discomfort, even many months after their surgery. Our team employs what’s known as the “Crescent” incision procedure, which involves liposuctioning the excess fat deposits from the upper arm, excising the excess skin and gathering it into the axilla, or the armpit. That way, the incision is completely concealed, and you can feel confident wearing short-sleeved shirts and tank tops once again.
We will prescribe compression garments following your brachioplasty, and you’ll be able to resume full physical activity within one month of your surgery. If there are any complications with the healing process, we will always see you as soon as possible. We want you to feel confident about your appearance, and not worry about loose or sagging skin on your arms. Schedule a consultation for cosmetic plastic surgery in Hawaii today, and we’ll look forward to seeing you.
