Create A Tighter – More Defined Arm Through Brachioplasty

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

Stubborn fat that is unresponsive to diet and exercise can make us feel defeated. We have all been naturally predisposed to hold on to weight in different areas of our bodies, as has been defined by our genetic make-up. One common complaint is in the area of the upper arms. It’s not just something that happens to older people, either, even younger people have stubborn fat pockets that can be more resistant to diet and exercise. It is also very common after weight loss to have excess, sagging skin under the arm, and everywhere else, too. Through Liposuction these stubborn pockets of fat can be targeted to create your ideal body contour. What can be done about excess, sagging skin of the upper arms?

Through Chicago Brachioplasty, also called an Arm Lift, we can remove the excess skin and, when combine with liposuction, also remove those stubborn fat cells, to create a tighter, more defined arm. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you are in good health, at a maintained a healthy weight, you don’t smoke and you have realistic expectations about your outcome. Brachioplasty, generally in the case of sagging skin from extensive weight loss, is usually done in conjunction with other Body Lift procedures which like tummy tucks, thigh lifts, face and neck lifts.
