Brachioplasty Procedures for Patients in Tampa
Brachioplasty, more commonly known as an arm lift, can help to tighten and smooth any loose or excess skin around the patient’s upper arm, from the elbow to the armpit. The procedure can help this area appear firmer and slimmer, and is particularly beneficial for men and women who have experienced sagging skin around their arms after dramatic weight loss, or as a result of the natural aging process. In Florida especially, many residents seek brachioplasty surgery to feel more confident wearing sleeveless and short-sleeved shirts as they enjoy the year-round warmth and sunshine.
If you think brachioplasty may help you achieve your appearance goals and you live in Tampa, Clearwater, Odessa, Lutz, or any other nearby community, you can visit Dr. John Roach at the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Roach is a highly esteemed plastic surgeon and can determine whether or not you’re an ideal candidate for brachioplasty. If you do decide to have an arm lift, he will expertly perform the surgery to give you the slimmer arms you desire.
Dr. Roach will begin your brachioplasty procedure by making incisions either on the backside or the inside of the arm. Excess skin will be removed through these incisions, which may run from the upper underarm area to the elbow. Sometimes, Dr. Roach also uses liposuction to remove excess fat. Finally, the underlying tissues will be reshaped and tightened to create new, more defined contours. To further enhance the results of your brachioplasty, and help you keep your arms looking slim and toned following the procedure, Dr. Roach may incorporate personal training sessions before and after the surgery.
