Arm Lift in Evansville and Jasper, IN
Even those in the tri-state area of Southern Indiana, Northern Kentucky, and Illinois with a relatively firm upper body tend to experience underarm jiggle, as the triceps muscle is extremely hard to tone. An arm lift performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan at Flannagan Plastic Surgery could be the solution for all Evansville and Jasper residents who want to get rid of unwanted jiggling in their upper arms.
What is an Arm Lift Procedure (Brachioplasty)?
An arm lift or brachioplasty procedure involves removing excess skin underneath the upper arm. This presents a more toned appearance, allowing muscles to become better defined. It also eliminates sagging skin that may jiggle or flap, causing you to avoid waving or making other arm motions. An arm lift procedure normally requires general anesthesia and is performed on an outpatient basis.
Why Does Arm Skin Sag?
The skin on the upper arms is very thin and therefore very fragile. This means that once the skin is stretched, it is not elastic enough to regain its previous shape. Because the arms are a visible part of the body and difficult to conceal, sagging skin in that area can cause insecurity and anxiety in some adults.
If you’re insecure about sagging arm skin, entrust Dr. Flannagan with your arm lift. This is a safe, effective procedure that is done quickly and has very little downtime. To best determine if you’re a candidate for an arm lift, schedule a consultation today.
Benefits of an Arm Lift
Sagging arms are a notorious symptom of the aging process. As we get older, it can seem impossible to keep that upper arm flab firm and toned. In addition to aging, sagging upper arm skin can be caused by weight loss or frequent weight fluctuation. When loose arm skin seems resistant to any amount of exercise, an arm lift can help.
Many times, arm lift procedures are able to accomplish what endless hours of exercise cannot, and that is providing you with firmer, more defined upper arms. It is an excellent option for anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight and noticed a great deal of loose skin as a result.
Is an Arm Lift Right for Me?
You may want to consider a brachioplasty if:
- Diet and exercise have not provided you with the results you desire
- Your skin has stretched after years of obesity, causing you to look as though you are still very heavy when in fact you are now at your targeted weight
- The aging process has taken its toll on your arms, resulting in a loss of elasticity that has produced sagging skin
Elements of an Arm Lift
An arm lift is an operating room procedure that begins with Dr. Flannagan gently marking the areas where excess fat and skin are to be removed. Next, you will be given general anesthesia while Dr. Flannagan goes to work eliminating excess tissue. Once this is accomplished, you will be taken to a recovery room and monitored by our staff. In the recovery room, you may read, watch television, or take a nap.
How Long is the Recovery After an Arm Lift Procedure?
There will naturally be some tenderness after your arm lift, and this may make certain activities uncomfortable. Listen to your body and avoid doing things that seem to cause discomfort. You should be completely back to normal within four to six weeks.
