At David Shifrin MD in Chicago, an arm lift or brachioplasty encompasses a group of cosmetic procedures used to slim, shape, and tighten the upper arm. Men and women alike are unhappy with the appearance of their arms due to:
- Excess stretched skin
- Visibile stretch marks
- Region out of proportion to rest of body
- Inability to properly fit into clothes
Whether its a due to aging or weight loss, the shape and contour of the upper arms is a cause for dissatisfaction. While a proper diet and exercise is the cornerstone of achieving a fit body, some parts of our body do not seem to improve regardless of how hard we try.
About Your Brachioplasty
There are a variety of rejuvenating procedures available to help improve the appearance of your arms. Dr Shifrin will identify the underlying cause of the problem area and will design a treatment plan specifically tailored to suit your needs. Commonly, removal of excess skin and soft tissue is combined with liposuction to slim the overall size of the region and to remove and tuck away the excess jiggling skin. The incision is placed along the inside of the upper arm and varies in length depending on the degree of correction necessary. During your consultation, Dr.Shifrin can help you decide which treatment is best suited for your body and your goals.
