What Are the Techniques Used for an Arm Lift?

Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he explains the process and method used to perform an arm lift procedure.

So there are various techniques to improve the contour of the arm. Sometimes only liposuction is needed with a small incision by the elbow to remove the unwanted fat. Other times, we need to have an incision up near the axilla or the armpit in order to remove a little bit of extra skin while we’re doing the liposuction, the full arm lift or brachioplasty is done with an incision which extends from the armpit down towards the elbow.

And we will remove some extra skin in that area. That’s the longest scar, but is usually concealed with the scar on the inner part of the arm. So it does not appear to be noticeable as much in normal daily activity.

If you or someone you love is interested in an arm lift in Buffalo, NY, schedule a consultation with Dr. Samuel Shatkin Jr. at the Aesthetic Associates Centre. He can help you understand your treatment options so you can make an informed decision about your health.
