Arm Lift – Weight Loss Surgery in Charlotte, NC
The Refine Institute offers arm lifts (brachioplasty), to the residents of Charlotte, Concord, and the surrounding communities in North Carolina and South Carolina.
Excess skin does not respond well to drastic weight loss, it’s a problem many patients have learned the hard way. The arm is a common place to lose tone, and have low hanging skin. To restore the definition in your arms, and lift self-esteem, many patients are turning to arm lift surgery.
The Arm Lift Procedure
Arm lift surgery restores the contours of your arms from the elbow to your underarm. Typically, incisions are placed along the inside of the arm, or under the arm. After the incision is made, underlying tissue is tightened and excess skin is removed. Your new, sleeker profile is then sutured and bandaged. Effects can be seen almost immediately, with long-term effects seen after your swelling and bruising heal.
You may experience some discomfort, swelling, tenderness, and bruising after your arm lift. This is common and will go away after a few days. Dr. Pratt will discuss your aftercare needs, including any necessary pain medication and which activities you can and cannot do in the first few weeks. You should restrict heavy lifting and repetitive motion, such as sports until you have properly healed.
