The upper arm has a tendency to collect fat, contributing to a saggy appearance. This can be caused by aging, weight fluctuations, and even genetics. Fortunately there is a safe, effective procedure to remove excess fat and tissue in the upper arm.
Arm Lift Surgery With Dr. Esmailian
Your arm lift with Dr. Esmailian will begin with a consultation. This will give him an opportunity to examine your arms and determine how much tissue needs to be excised. During this time, you and he will discuss your goals and come up with a treatment plan. Once everything is agreed upon, treatment can begin. The first step in an arm left is the application of anesthetic. In some cases, your arm lift can be done with local anesthetic, which means you won’t be unconscious. In certain cases, Dr. Esmailian will recommend general anesthetic for maximum comfort during the operation. Once anesthetic is applied, treatment begins with an incision made on the undersides of the upper arms.
The length and shape of the incision is determined by how much tissue is going to be removed. This aspect of your treatment will be fully discussed ahead of time. After the incisions are made, Dr. Esmailian proceeds by removing underlying tissue that has become excessive, and tightening the remainder with stitches. The upper arm skin is then draped over the new contours, allowing Dr. Esmailian to remove the proper amount of excess skin. Once this is done, the skin is closed with techniques that minimize any resultant scar. An arm lift generally takes two hours to complete.
