Arm Lift/Brachioplasty in Reno/Tahoe, Nevada
As we age, the skin and soft tissue all over the body increasingly develop more laxity due to gravity and loss of skin elasticity. This is particularly true for the upper arms, where the skin laxity can lead to a droopy and formless appearance. A brachioplasty, or arm lift, is a body contouring surgical procedure that can sculpt, rejuvenate and refresh the upper arm, so you can once again enjoy wearing sleeveless clothing, swimwear and evening wear.
- What Does an Arm Lift Entail with Dr. Dayan at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe?
Dr. Dayan’s approach to the arm lift procedure is unique because it includes 270-degree liposuction to thin the arm contour. Then a well-hidden incision is used, by which loose, sagging skin is removed. Dr. Dayan also frequently combines cutting-edge, energy-based technology to optimally shrink the skin and augment results. This combination leads to a youthful and tight-appearing upper arm contour.
One of the biggest concerns for patients seeking a brachioplasty procedure is incision visibility. Dr. Dayan has developed a technique to create a well-hidden incision to minimize this concern. He closes incisions in a multi-layered approach to ensure they are pencil-thin. Arm lift surgery typically takes 1-3 hours, depending on the extent of the changes required. After the procedure, the patient is placed in a compression wrap and comfortably brought to our recovery suite.
