Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) in Washington, DC
Dr. Yousefi offers arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, for patients in Washington, DC, Vienna, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
Fatty tissue can be removed in some cases with intensive weight loss efforts, but the excess skin and a portion of the fat will always remain. It is for this reason that most people seek surgical reduction of the fatty tissue and skin of the upper arms through an arm lift, also called brachioplasty.
How Is a Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) Performed?
Depending on the amount and location of the excess fat and hanging skin, Dr. Yousefi will recommend either a mini arm lift or a full arm lift.
In a mini arm lift, the incision is placed in the armpit, which is much easier to hide.
For the full arm lift, the incision on the upper arm may be visible with various normal movements of the arm.
The most acceptable location for the scar is on the inner area of the arm, approximately two-thirds of the way back on the arm. The incision typically will need to extend from the area of the elbow along the inner arm into the armpit. It will then be possible to remove an adequate amount of fatty tissue and skin to tighten the upper arm skin and tissues. This will eliminate excess hanging or sagging skin and fat.
What Can I Expect After a Brachioplasty procedure?
Reasonable restriction of activities involving the arms following an arm lift procedure is necessary for one to two weeks. Dr. Yousefi will work with you throughout the entire procedure and recovery process to ensure you have a comfortable experience. Once healing is complete, you will enjoy healthy, youthful arms.
How Much Does an Arm Lift Cost in Washington, DC?
