What is Brachioplasty?
Brachioplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address excess skin and fat in the upper arms. It is typically performed on individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or have loose and sagging skin in that area. During the procedure, an incision is made along the inner part of the arm which can extend from the elbow or be limited to only the arm pit depending on the patient. Excess skin and fat are removed and the remaining tissues are tightened and reshaped to create a more toned and contoured appearance. Often times, Dr. Chahin uses the option of Vaser ultrasonic liposuction technology and Renuvion Helium Plasma technology to help tighten the skin and reduce the visible scar pattern.
