Many factors can cause your upper arms to have a sagging, drooping, and somewhat “batwing”-like appearance, including weight loss, aging, and genetics. Diet and exercise can address the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it is unable to correct the hanging excess skin. Both men and women choosing to improve this appearance of their upper arms with an arm lift performed by Dr. Brueck in Fort Myers.
What is an Arm Lift?
Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes under the upper arm, typically from the elbow to the armpit region. This is achieved by removing excess skin and, in some cases, utilizing liposuction to eliminate deposits of fat.
Am I a good candidate for an Arm Lift in Fort Myers?
If you have sagging, loose, or hanging skin on the underside of your upper arm, an arm lift may be right for you. An initial consultation with Dr. Brueck is necessary to determine your candidacy.
What can I expect from an Arm Lift?
After your arm lift procedure, you will notice the excess skin and fat are removed under the arm, leaving a smoother, tighter arm contour. Initial results will continue to improve after swelling and bruising subside. An arm lift does involve a thin scar on the inside of your upper arm, which may be noticeable, but will heal nicely.
How long is recovery from an Arm Lift?
Following your arm lift, Dr. Brueck will wrap your arms in a compression garment to reduce swelling and the risk of complications. It is critical to follow Dr. Brueck’s specific aftercare instructions for optimal and quicker recovery. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor the progress of your healing.
