Big Arms are a big deal. I’m not talking about the “big guns” produced by lifting weights. I’m talking about loosing weight, getting in shape and still having big arms due to loose, flabby skin. This is a common problem for anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight. Some people are born with large arms and loose skin, but many of my Arm Lift patients have lost weight through diet and exercise or after bariatric surgery. For them, the larger the weight loss, the bigger the problem.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Brachioplasty literally means arm changing. The ideal candidate is healthy, with a large amount of loose, redundant upper arm skin. Sometimes called Bat Wings, this skin excess is not amenable to exercise, and further weight loss only exacerbates the problem. There is no skin shrinking ray, so the options are often either an Arm Lift or to live with it.
Arm Lift Video (Brachioplasty)
Below is a recent Body Beautiful segment dedicated to Arm Reduction surgery from the San Francisco Bay Area’s News Station, KRON 4. This Brachioplasty Video answers many of the frequently asked questions about Arm Lifts and reviews the results that some of my patients have received. The information provided is accurate, but cannot be considered medical advice. An in-person consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is always recommend prior to choosing a treatment plan.
Arm Lift Before and After Pictures
The above Arm Lift Video includes many Brachioplasty Before and After Pictures. From arm to arm there are differences in appearance, so the Arm Lift is adapted to your unique needs. There is no substitution for an in-person evaluation, but additional Arm Lift Information is available here on the San Francisco Plastic Surgery Blog and on my main web site’s Arm Lift Page.
