Brachioplasty: Are you a candidate?
Brachioplasty or an arm lift surgery has increased tremendously over the past 10 years. Who are the patients having this procedure and are you a candidate? Diet, exercise and gastric bypass patients who have lost massive amounts of weight include the many who are going through with the surgery. Surgery is their decision to rid themselves of the hanging skin they have acquired while they gladly trade this off for an inner arm scar. However, what if you just have a fat upper arm and this will not change regardless of diet and exercise? Brachioplasty may not be the answer. You might be a candidate for liposuction of the area? Not sure? Meeting with a certified cosmetic surgery who is a member of the ASPS will be able to give you all of your options to see what is best for you.
