Jiggly arms, bat wings, flabby triceps - no matter how you describe it, more and more women are taking action against upper arm fat.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, demand for an upper arm lift has risen more than 900% in the last two decades. More than 25,000 upper arm lifts were performed in 2015, and we're seeing an increased demand for the procedure in our Savannah office as well.
An upper arm lift is also called brachioplasty. This surgical procedure removes excess fat and skin from the tricep area.
There is a scar associated with brachioplasty, which usually diminishes over time. But if you don't have a lot of excess skin and don't need a full brachioplasty, there are other options available that leave minimal scarring, such as liposuction to remove fat followed by a SkinTyte procedure to tighten up the loose skin on your arms.
Our surgeons can help you determine which solution is best for your unique situation. So if you're bothered by excess fat or loose skin on your upper arms, make an appointment today for a consultation with one of our six physicians. We'd be happy to answer your questions!
