Arm Lift Nashville
Age, genetics and fluctuations in weight can cause the upper arms to sag or droop overtime. This condition is unable to be corrected through diet and exercise alone.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure intended to reshape the underside of the arm, ridding of excess skin. It targets the upper portion of the underarm to the elbow.
Goals of an Arm Lift:
- Reduce excess sagging of the skin that droops downward.
- Tighten and smooth underlying tissue.
- Improve arm shape and definition.
- Reduce fat pockets in upper portion of the arm.
Is This Procedure for You?
The best candidates for an arm lift are men or women who are in relatively good shape but are bothered by loose skin and fat deposits that will not respond to diet or exercise. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients, which frequently occurs with slight obesity, may also be improved.
At the time of your consultation, you will meet with your chosen board certified plastic surgeon who will talk with you about your goals and the best way to achieve your desired outcomes. Our goal is to make sure every one of your questions is answered and you feel comfortable with your knowledge of the procedure. In your initial consultation, one of our surgeons will evaluate your health, discuss your medical history, determine the extent of loose skin in your arm region and carefully assess your skin tone. They will then review your goals and make recommendations based on his evaluation. The techniques used in the arm lift procedure will be described in detail, and informational materials will be provided. Be sure to tell the doctor if you smoke or are taking any medications, vitamins or other drugs.
You will have a Patient Care Coordinator who will work closely with you through your entire time in our practice, serving as your resource for any questions or concerns you have along the way. After your time talking with the surgeon, your Patient Coordinator will provide you with a detailed, written estimate of surgical fees for your procedure at the time of your initial consultation at Cool Springs Plastic Surgery in Nashville, Tennessee.
