Aside from the face, the arms are one of the most exposed areas where signs of aging are visible. An arm lift can produce firm, contoured arms that enhance your figure and your self-confidence. Rosenthal Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatology offers brachioplasty services to residents of Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Wellington, FL.
What is a Brachioplasty?
A brachioplasty, often referred to as an arm lift, is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates excess fat and sagging skin from the upper arms to produce a slimmer, more contoured appearance. Unlike the rest of the body, the upper arms are often exposed, especially in warm weather. Since they are prone to developing loose, sagging skin, the arms are commonly an area of concern. You may choose to have an arm lift to achieve a more toned appearance in the arms, which helps to complement the rest of the figure.
How Much Does a Brachioplasty Cost?
The cost of a brachioplasty will vary based on your unique needs and treatment goals. During your consultation, we take many things into consideration to design a personalized treatment plan that will optimize your results and treatment experience. Once this treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your brachioplasty treatment. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect During the Brachioplasty Procedure?
Before a brachioplasty procedure, we will use anesthesia to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout your treatment. Then, an incision will be made that runs between the elbow and the armpit, along the inside of the arm. The length of this incision will depend on the extent of surgery necessary to deliver your desired results. Through the incision, we will remove excess fat and skin to produce the desired results. Then, the incisions are sealed and the treatment is complete.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Brachioplasty?
After an arm lift, you should notice their results immediately. The results from a brachioplasty can last for years, but the treatment cannot prevent changes from developing in the future due to changes in weight. We encourage you to maintain a healthy diet and exercise habits to help your results last as long as possible.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following a Brachioplasty?
Due to the invasive nature of a brachioplasty, you will likely have to take time away from work and other activities to reocver, especially those that involve heavy lifting. You may experience swelling, bruising, and other side effects for a few weeks before the full results of your treatment are noticeable. Dr. Rosenthal will inform you how to care for yourself during healing, which may include important instructions regarding hygiene, diet, and daily activities.
