Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
The operation is usually done under gentle sedation with local anesthesia. The recovery is comfortable. The procedure does leave a thin scar which extends from the axilla (armpit) to the elbow. This is well covered by the shirt sleeve but would be noticed when the arm is uncovered.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Brachioplasty at Napa Solano Plastic Surgery?
The brachioplasty is many times done in conjunction with other skin tightening operations such as tummy tucks and breast lifts. Adding a brachioplasty to another operation doesn’t increase the overall recovery time.
A similar but less common operation is the inner thigh lift done for the same reasons, and in the same manner as the brachioplasty.
