Women visit our Cleveland plastic surgery practice to improve the way they look and feel about themselves. Majority of these women’s concerns have to do with them not being able to wear sleeveless tops, dresses, and bathing suits because of the appearance of unsightly sagging skin and excess fat in the upper arms. Consequently, these women end up with poor fashion choices and reduced self-esteem.
Your Customized Arm Lift Surgery Plan
In Cleveland, Ohio, people seek Dr. Totonchi’s expert plastic surgery services to improve the appearance of their flabby arms. By and large, an arm lift (also known as brachioplasty) is effective in helping tone your arms and the underarm region that exercise alone cannot address. In fact, we have encountered patients who still have the problem despite engaging regularly in yoga, Pilates, and other types of strength training exercises.
You are an ideal candidate for an arm lift if:
- you want to improve the appearance of excess, droopy skin that tends to sag downward when your arms are extended away from the body
- you are within your ideal body weight and physically fit
- you have no history of previous health conditions which could impair healing
- you are a non-smoker or can quit smoking months before and after the procedure
- you have realistic expectations of the arm lift procedure
Here at our practice, men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight either via diet and exercise or who just experienced childbirth are the ones who commonly seek an arm lift procedure.
How long will the results of my arm lift last?
This question is frequently asked during personal consultations. By and large, as long as you don’t experience extreme fluctuations in weight, the results of your arm lift will last you a long time. Keep in mind though that your body continues to age and loose skin will most likely return. However, you can avoid this from happening through a combination of diet and exercise.
