Sculpted and toned arms are a highly desirable trait among both men and women. Unfortunately, excess skin and tissues resulting from weight loss, aging or genetics do not respond to exercise. If you are embarrassed by shapeless arms that you hide under long-sleeved or bulky clothing, brachioplasty (otherwise known as arm lift) with Drs. Mark A. Foglietti and Alanna Foglietti Fostyk may be what you need to feel confident in your own skin.
Men and women in Cleveland and the surrounding area trust Drs. Foglietti and Foglietti Fostyk for slimmer, more attractive arms. Our board-certified plastic surgeons stay abreast of the latest and most advanced techniques in brachioplasty in order to skillfully reshape and re-sculpt the arms in a way that complements the rest of the body.
Can I Benefit from Brachioplasty?
Brachioplasty offers a number of benefits, both emotional and physical. By removing excess, saggy skin and tightening the underlying tissues, upper arm lift creates a flatter and firmer contour. The arms will look more toned and proportionate to the rest of your body. Knowing that your arms look sleek and attractive will give you the confidence you need to socialize and wear any clothing you want, without feeling self-conscious. Arm lift can also relieve physical discomfort caused by folds of skin rubbing against each other. As a result, exercise becomes more comfortable and enjoyable. You may even find that you are more motivated to exercise to maintain your newly contoured arms.
Arm Lift Procedure Details
Arm lift is an outpatient procedure, performed under anesthesia. Prior to surgery, you will meet with Dr. Foglietti or Dr. Foglietti Fostyk to discuss your goals and develop the details of your surgery.
During brachioplasty, the surgeon will create an incision on the inside or back of the arm. The length of the incision will depend on the degree of correction needed. Through the incision, the underlying tissues will be re-sculpted. If needed, fatty tissue will be removed using liposuction. Excess, stretched-out skin will also be removed while the remaining skin will be re-draped over the flatter arm contour. Once the agreed-upon modifications have been made, the incisions will be closed with sutures and the treatment area will be dressed with soft bandages and a compression garment.
To maintain your slimmer arms, you are advised to eat healthily and exercise regularly. Our surgeons can provide you with more information on how to maintain your results following your brachioplasty procedure.
