Arm Lift – Brachioplasty Surgery Richmond

Tag Archives: excess skin

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.

Unhappy with creases and loose skin caused by aging? The facelift procedure is a surgery designed to remove loose skin, eliminate creases, and much more.

Plastic surgery incisions result in scars; this is as true for facelifts as it is for any other surgical procedure. Happily, because part of the incision for a traditional facelift procedure is made along the hairline, the resulting scar will be hidden by this border area. Plastic surgeons are trained in finding the best sites for the camouflaging of surgical scars.

When you take diligent care of your incision scars, they will typically fade and blend in with the rest of the skin in up to six months.
