Brachioplasty Chicago

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

The Arm Lift surgery, also called Brachioplasty, is a body contouring procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of a sagging upper arm. This notoriously difficult to tone area has given many people trouble, especially as they have gotten older. When there is excess, sagging skin in the upper arm it can be difficult because no amount of good eating or regular exercise will do away with that sagging skin. The Brachioplasty removes the excess skin through an incision that runs from the elbow to the armpit in the under/inside part of the upper arm.

In some cases, the Liposuction procedure may be performed at the same time to address localized stubborn pockets of fat in the area as well. If you are interested in learning more about the Brachioplasty surgery and recovery process, and to find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Ashpole. Ideal candidates are in good mental and physical health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for the procedure and results.
