If baring your arms has become difficult due to bat wings, or loose skin that hangs down below the arms, you may be a candidate for a brachioplasty. The skin of the arms can become loose and shapeless over time, and weight loss can make this loose skin more noticeable. Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles brachioplasty doctor, can use an arm lift to tighten this loose skin and create a more attractive silhouette.
Dr. Kerendian, our expert in brachioplasty in Los Angeles, may recommend this procedure if you:
• Are of normal weight but have lax skin under your arm
• Have lost weight and have excess skin and fat under your arm
• Want to look better in clothes and have better confidence
• Want to wear sleeveless or short-sleeved clothing without feeling self-conscious
• Are healthy, with no medical conditions that would interfere with your ability to undergo surgery
• Are a non-smoker
At your consultation, Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles brachioplasty doctor, will examine your arms to determine the most appropriate procedure for your needs. Your options may vary based on the quality of your skin and the amount of fat that is present under your arm, as well as your individual anatomy and personal preferences.
Brachioplasty Los Angeles
You may benefit from liposuction if the area of concern has large fat deposits. The liposuction can be used to remove the fat deposits. The brachioplasty can then be used to tighten the remaining tissues. Several techniques can be used to perform the procedure depending on the amount of excess skin that is present. Dr. Kerendian, expert in brachioplasty in Los Angeles, will create the incisions based on the type of procedure you need and close them in a way designed to minimize scarring. After your procedures, special dressings and compression garments will be applied to help your arms heal. Most patients recover quickly; we will provide you with aftercare instructions that will promote healing and reduce your risk of complications.
