Have you ever hailed a cab, looked down, and noticed loose, hanging skin from your upper arm? You wouldn’t be the first! Many men and women struggle with sagging skin in their upper arms connecting to the chest wall. A brachioplasty, or arm lift as many refer to it as, is the surgical procedure to reshape/ tighten loose skin and remove fat under the arm.
At Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa and Dr. Ali Mosharrafa are the two most prestigious plastic surgeons in the phoenix and Scottsdale areas. Providing more than just surgical procedures, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir are committed to giving patients the self-confidence they deserve and bring vivacity back into their lives.
Excess skin and fat in the arms is often the result of extreme weight fluctuation. Achieving the weight you’ve always dreamed of can fall short when your arms tell a different story. If you tried dieting and exercise without any improvements to your upper arms, you may want to schedule a consultation with either Dr. Ali or Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa. Out outpatient center for plastic surgery is conveniently located for patients across the Arizona valley.
A brachioplasty can be done in a number of methods. If a patient has firm, elastic skin under the arms, liposuction cosmetic surgery is a suitable solution. Liposuction allows our plastic surgeons to sculpt and reduce the upper arm size by removing excess fat. The skin is then able to fit the slimmer shape.
Patients with loose, sagging skin under their upper arms, liposuction is not likely the solution. Removing fat under the arm will not do the trick, because the already sagging skin is not able to reshape to a smaller shape. For these patients, Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa or Dr. Ali Mosharrafa will specially tailor the skin by removing both fat and skin. This procedure is what is known as brachioplasty (arm lift).
Both a brachioplasty and liposuction ultimately achieve similar results, to create a slimmer, more appealing upper arm. At Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, our services are second to none, with all of our staff committed to the safety and integrity of every patient’s case.
