Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) Sydney
A Brachioplasty, often known as an upper arm lift, is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates extra skin and fat beneath your arms.
The method is the most efficient approach to removing what is usually called “bat wings”, as sagging arm skin cannot be tightened by exercise and diet alone. Ageing, genetics and significant weight changes (especially after weight loss surgery) can be all factors in causing excess skin to droop from your upper arms. An upper arm lift, typically performed as inpatient surgery, is the most effective and long-lasting way to remove excess skin and recontour the arms.
This cosmetic surgery can be performed using various surgical methods, such as a standard upper arm lift and mini-arm lift. Depending on your aesthetic objectives and the natural shape of your arms, Dr Yunaev will assist you in making the best decision.
Regardless of the arm lift type you receive, the procedure can dramatically improve your appearance. Like many men and women, you may realise that even a slight adjustment in how your arms look can make the rest of your body appear noticeably younger and slimmer. Brachioplasty can be performed with other body contouring techniques, such as liposuction, to eliminate extra fat and give the arms or other areas a more toned, sculpted appearance.
For patients who have lost a large amount of weight or as part of a “mummy makeover” (combined breast, body and limb procedure), it may also be performed as a more comprehensive body lift operation, including cosmetic procedures such as a abdominoplasty, thigh lift/ thighplasty, or breast lift/mastopexy.
