Considering Brachioplasty in New Jersey?

Your arms are an important part of the image that you present to the world, whether in a swimsuit, sleeveless top, or a strapless dress. Whether you’ve always wanted to make a change to your arms or if you’re simply addressing age-related changes, Dr. Parakh’s brachioplasty procedure can help you achieve the look you desire.

Why Patients Love the Arm Lift

You can change the way that you feel about your arms and self-presentation with a more slender and toned arm profile. An arm lift can achieve the following:

  • Improves the appearance of loose, flabby, crepe-like skin of the upper arms
  • Removes fat from the upper arms
  • Allows the patient to wear sleeveless clothing with confidence

A Personalized Arm Lift Just for You

Brachioplasty (an arm lift or reduction) is designed to remove excess fat or loose skin from your upper arm area. The procedure is personally customized for your body and improves the aesthetics of the shape, contours, and size of your specific upper arm area. For many people who have lost a significant amount of weight, loose upper arm skin can remain and cause a loss of confidence or discomfort with wearing clothing that can show off your new body.

What Can Brachioplasty Do for You?

Many individuals have worked hard to achieve their weight loss goals. Nevertheless, even after shedding pounds and meeting your weight loss goals, loose skin can be left behind — especially in areas such as the upper arms. Sometimes this loose skin can also make it difficult to find shirts and other clothing that properly fit both your chest and your arms. A brachioplasty can help significantly with this problem.

In addition, brachioplasty reduces excess fat that can accumulate in the upper arms with age. When you’re generally happy with your body size and shape but want to change the look of your arms, brachioplasty is an excellent option. 

An arm lift can effectively reduce the appearance of aging. In addition to removing excess skin and fat, a brachioplasty can improve the shape of the underlying support tissues and restore a smoother contour to your skin. 

This procedure may be an excellent choice for healthy people (at any age) who are not planning future serious weight loss.

What to Expect During Your Brachioplasty Consultation

Dr. Parakh will present the possibilities of a brachioplasty in a one-on-one consultation with you. You can discuss your reasons for considering the procedure and what you would like to achieve. Whether you’re eager to proceed or still have some nervousness and trepidation, Dr. Parakh will provide the information you need and help you think about your goals. She will present realistic outcomes for your arm lift by using 3D computer imaging.

In addition, she will also make recommendations about the type of procedure that would work for you and provide examples of outcomes for people in similar situations. Dr. Parakh will also provide a thorough overview of expectations, risks, and the recovery time for the procedure. You’ll be able to make a plan for brachioplasty at your consultation, and you can even choose to schedule a future date for the procedure if you would like.

How an Arm Lift is Performed

In general, brachioplasty is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on your choices and the advice of Dr. Parakh, the procedure can be performed in several ways. The right technique for you will be determined and discussed during your consultation. An incision is made on the lower side of the arm, and the procedure may require a longer or shorter incision, depending on the location of excess fat or tissue. This incision can often be concealed in a natural crease of the arm. Using this incision, Dr. Parakh will remove excess fat and skin to create a firmer, better contoured appearance for your upper arms.

What is the Recovery Process Like?

After a brachioplasty, you are likely to experience some discomfort, swelling, and pain. These symptoms should subside in the first 2-3 weeks following the procedure. Scars will also soften and then fade in the months after your procedure.

You should be able to resume your daily routine (including working) within two weeks, but it’s best to wait 4-6 weeks to resume any strenuous exercise.

Brachioplasty Results: What to Expect

Brachioplasty is a permanent cosmetic procedure that will significantly improve the appearance and tone of your upper arms. As long as you maintain a relatively stable weight, the results of your brachioplasty are long-lasting. This procedure should be performed when you are at or within 20 pounds of your ideal weight or the weight which you intend to maintain to avoid disruption caused by major weight gain or loss.
