Arm LiftQuestion: I work out constantly and I still cannot seem to decrease my flabby arms. The hanging skin bothers me so much that I want to consider a surgical option if there is one. Is that possible?

Answer: After a thorough evaluation we will decide if liposuction, mini brachioplasty or full brachioplasty is the appropriate procedure for you. If you are a good candidate I can perform a procedure called Brachioplasty (Arm Lift), which is an excellent means of eliminating excess skin in the upper arm area. It is on an outpatient basis and patients typically return to work in 2-3 days. There are some restrictions in upper arm activity for 4-6 weeks but having this surgery can be transformative to one’s wardrobe options! My patients tell me how much more they enjoy wearing form fitting blouses and sleeveless blouses and dresses postoperatively after the scars have faded! Not everyone is a candidate for this procedure. The best way to find out is through a comprehensive consultation.
