The upper, under arms are a difficult area to achieve the smooth, toned results desired when there is excess, sagging skin or localized pockets of fat. It can be frustrating to find improvements in other areas of your body through diet and exercise and not be able to achieve your goals in the upper, under arms. Through Brachioplasty, or Fresno Arm Lift, the excess skin may be removed and, when paired with Liposuction, the excess pockets of localized fat may also be removed to create a smoother, more toned upper arm appearance.
The Fresno Arm Lift procedure takes about two to three hours, when not paired with other procedures, and the recovery time is approximately one to three weeks. As with any surgical procedure, it is important to understand both the risks and benefits. The Fresno Arm Lift procedure may not be right for everyone. Ideal candidates for the procedure have upper arm laxity, are in good health, no significantly overweight, are non-smokers and have realistic expectations for the kinds of results possible.
