For many individuals, losing a considerable amount of weight is something to be celebrated. However, losing a great deal of fat can often lead to new aesthetic troubles, many of which can only be treated through plastic surgery. Excess skin hanging around the arms often occurs when a patient has lost a significant amount of weight.
If you’ve undergone a physical transformation via weight loss and you have loose skin on your arms, you may need an arm lift – otherwise known as a brachioplasty – to remove this excess skin from your arm. An arm lift can also be used to remove fat from the arm, which is often more difficult to lose than weight around the stomach and thigh areas.
If you’re interested in undergoing a brachioplasty, visit Dr. Corbin at his Beverly Hills and Brea office locations. As a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Corbin has been providing hundreds of patients with innovative arm lift procedures, many of which have been responsible for improving appearances and lifting self-esteem. After all, patients who have lost weight deserve to show off their hard work – and an arm lift can make that possible.
Dr. Corbin knows that a one-size-fits-all approach isn’t ideal for providing patients with the results they desire. That’s why Dr. Corbin provides in-depth consultations to clients, so he can determine which procedures will help a patient achieve his or her desired appearance. During this consultation, Dr. Corbin will examine your arms to determine how much excessive skin or arm fat you might have. After this consultation, Dr. Corbin might recommend the following procedures:
- For mild to moderate excessive skin, Dr. Corbin may recommend a brachioplasty. This arm lift procedure allows Dr. Corbin to remove the skin that’s hanging off of the arm, thus allowing patients to show off the results of their weight loss with pride.
- If you want to remove fat from your arms, Dr. Corbin may recommend Laser Lipo or traditional liposuction, depending on the results you’d like to achieve. Dr. Corbin will discuss what you can expect from each procedure, and help you determine which one is right for you.
