Arm Lift Palo Alto
The upper arms can become saggy and hang either due to heredity and genetics, or from significant weight loss. In either case, despite good fitness and targeted exercise, the lax skin “bat wing” can continue to be a concern. A brachioplasty is a procedure designed to improve the contour and shape of the upper arm. The length of the scar will depend on the degree of lax skin and the goals of the patient. The scar may be able to be hidden in the armpit, but may need to continue down the arm if there is an excessive amount of excess skin. In considering this surgery, the patient may need to consider the tradeoff of the scar instead of the excess skin.
