Our Approach to Breast Augmentations is Anything but Plastic
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
A Brachioplasty, or “arm lift” removes excess sagging skin under the arm. Often after weight loss, you notice excess skin under the arms. Sometimes the fullness that accumulates in the arm area is just fat, or a combination of skin, fat, and even loose muscle. Excess fat is removed with liposuction. Excess skin is removed from near the elbow to the armpit. The scar is placed an inconspicuous location along the inner arm. Some scarring will be visible.
Since your procedure is an individualized one, your recovery period will differ from others. Plan for extra household help for the days following your procedure. Dr. Coan and his surgical nurses and staff will be pleased to review your treatment plan individualized for your procedure. Additionally, our patient care coordinator will work with you to determine a timeline that best suits your lifestyle.
Do arm lift scars fade?
Over time, the pigmentation of scars tends to fade. Some patients may be more prone to hyperpigmented scars, depending on a patient’s complexion and ethnicity. Other methods to optimize scarring include adequate sun protection and Biocorneum. As the only FDA-approved scar treatment, Biocorneum is a silicone-based scar gel that also includes protection of SPF 30. We encourage our patients to always utilize medical-grade SPF and Biocorneum as soon as their incisions are fully healed.
