Arm Lift Santa Barbara
A brachioplasty is a surgical procedure to treat excessive fat and loose skin along the upper arms. The procedure reduces and reshapes the upper arms by removing the excess skin and fat from the inner and back part of the upper arm. The final scar is placed along the posterior part of the arm so it is not easily visible with the arm at one’s side. In general, the changes achieved with a brachioplasty are expected to be long lasting. However, subsequent alterations in the fat and skin along the upper arms may occur as the result of aging, weight loss or gain, menopause or other circumstances. During consultation, Dr. Yegiyants will listen to your concern, review your medical history, examine you and recommend the best treatment option to achieve your desired look. The long upper arm scar will fade and improve over time, but it will never disappear. Laser therapy options are available for scar management.
