The upper arms are a common trouble spot for loose skin. Weight loss and aging are the biggest contributors to saggy upper arms that can be embarrassing for many people. Arms with “batwings” can be embarrassing, and many people with excess arm skin hide it under sleeves, even in hot weather. Brachioplasty can give individuals with saggy upper arms the confidence to wear sleeveless clothes again. At pēkomd®, we offer a short-scar arm lift, or brachioplasty, at our plastic surgery center in Toledo, OH.
Arm lift surgery is a popular body contouring procedure that can give you sexier, more youthful appearing arms. The traditional brachioplasty removes excess skin and tissue to reshape the upper arms, but it requires a long incision that extends from the armpit to the elbow. This procedure is necessary for individuals who have excessive sagging on their upper arms; but not everyone needs the long-scar procedure to tighten the upper arms. Dr. Peter Koltz at pēkomd® offers a crescent lift in armpit procedure with a shorter, more discreet incision.
Crescent Scar Brachioplasty
For patients with loose skin only on the upper half of the triceps, a short-scar arm lift surgery may be an option. This procedure uses a crescent-shaped incision that starts in the armpit and extends a short way down the upper arm. Unlike traditional brachioplasty scars that extend to the elbow, the crescent lift procedure scar is more discreet. The scar is well-hidden and is difficult to see unless the arms are sleeveless and completely raised.
Short-scar arm lift surgery can remove excess skin and reshape the upper arms. For many of our patients at pēkomd®, crescent lift brachioplasty can give them more confidence to wear flattering clothing, especially in warm weather. The smaller incision allows for a quicker recovery time than traditional brachioplasty, as well as a discreet scar.
If you have loose skin on your upper arms, or “batwings,” brachioplasty can tighten and contour your arm shape. At pēkomd®, we offer short-scar arm lift surgery to hide the evidence of the procedure.
