Brachioplasty – Richmond Arm Lift Surgery

Tag Archives: bat wings

Brachioplasty is a way of reshaping upper arms that, due to aging or dramatic weight loss, have accrued an excess of fat cells and hanging skin. If you’ve been dealing with this particular issue, arm lift surgery may be right for you.

Reshaping the upper arms with brachioplasty involves a few possible steps. Your plastic surgeon may use liposuction to take out excess fat cells.

Internal stitches may be employed to create a slim new shape for the arm’s internal tissues. These stitches will not need to be removed; instead, they will keep the new tissue configuration supported and stable.

Excess drooping skin will also be trimmed away, so the remaining skin will be taut and will better show off the muscles.

So if you’re ready to get those arms in shape, contact our office for a brachioplasty consultation. Board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin, well-respected medical professionals serving the Richmond area, will be happy to help. Call or email today!

If you’ve got “bat wings” – hanging arm skin and fat – think about a surgical solution. The arm lift procedure will remove that extra skin and leave you with arms you can feel great about. Part of an arm lift is the creation of incisions on the backs or bottoms of the upper arms.

Your plastic surgeon may use a zigzag or curved pattern when making their arm lift incisions. The pattern of the incision will depend on several factors, including the amount of tissue to remove and the shape that will best hide the resulting scars. This will be determined in advance, during your consultation.
