An upper arm lift removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscle to help patients achieve their desired shape.
What is an arm lift?
Hanging skin on the upper arm, also known as "bat wings," can be very frustrating when you get older or lose significant weight. Even when diet and exercise are consistent, there are some situations where the skin will not become firm. In this case, the only answer to achieve a better contour is through brachioplasty. Dr. Vinyard uses specialized techniques and discreet incision placement to tighten and remove excess skin and contour the arms so patients can start wearing clothing they would or could not wear before, such as tank tops, dresses, and sleeveless shirts. Dr. Vinyard's arm lift patients report high satisfaction with their results and are happy to trade the minimal scarring for improved upper arm skin and size. If you would like to learn more about how brachioplasty can modify the contour of your arms, please get in touch with us for a consultation at VIPS.
