Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) in Jacksonville & Fleming Island, FL
Brachioplasty, often referred to as an arm lift, is a cosmetic procedure to eliminate loose, sagging skin under the arms. This helps to reshape the underarm and improve body contours when traditional exercise fails to do so. Coastal Cosmetic Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Fee, MD, offers brachioplasty to residents living in Jacksonville, Fleming Island, the surrounding North Florida communities, and throughout the world who want to tighten their upper arms and improve their body image.
What is Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)?
Age, genetics, and weight loss can all contribute to arms that have sagging skin and lack definition. Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift will tighten the skin, as well as remove excess fat and skin dimples. The results will allow you to confidently wear clothing that shows off a youthful, toned set of arms.
What Are the Benefits of Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)?
An arm lift provides long-lasting results that will bolster confidence in your appearance, thus improving your self-image. An arm lift can give you the sleek, toned arms you desire by removing loose skin left over from extreme weight loss.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)?
The ideal candidates for brachioplasty are healthy individuals who are experiencing skin laxity under the arms due to major weight loss or age and genetics.
What is the Procedure for Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)?
Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia at the Coastal Cosmetic Center’s on-site nationally accredited surgery center in Jacksonville, FL. Dr. Fee will remove excess skin and tissue from the underarm area, including from the elbow to the armpit. The skin will then be pulled tight and sutured during the two to three-hour procedure.
What is the Recovery for Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)?
To encourage the proper skin contour, compression garments will need to be worn during the recovery period. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling initially but will be able to resume strenuous exercise and activities within one or two months.
How Much Does Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) Cost?
All associated costs will be reviewed after a treatment plan has been developed during your arm lift consultation at one of our two conveniently located offices in Jacksonville or Fleming Island. Financing will also be discussed at that time.
