Demand on the Rise for Upper Arm Surgery


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!

Plastic Surgery Myths


liptsick-mirror.jpgIs plastic surgery only for rich people? Do you need a broken nose to get a nose job?

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, myths and rumors abound. That's why we loved this article from, dispelling some of the most common plastic surgery myths.

For example, that nose job question - you certainly don't have to have a broken nose to be a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Some people do get a nose job after having a broken nose, but others just want to change the look of an otherwise healthy nose, or improve nasal breathing. You and your doctor can determine if a nose job is right for you.

Another myth? If you get plastic surgery, that means you're vain. First of all, if there is something bothering you physically and you change it through surgery, that doesn't make you shallow or vain. Also, for some people plastic surgery actually improves their overall health and well-being. For example, breast reduction patients have often suffered from back pain prior to surgery because of overly large breasts. Patients who undergo eyelid surgery sometimes have difficulty seeing because of excess skin around their eyes.

As for the rumor that cosmetic procedures are only for the wealthy - thankfully that one isn't true either. For one thing, there are many procedures that are minimally invasive and therefore generally cost less. Injectables and laser treatments can provide long-lasting results without breaking the bank. And even if you do choose to undergo plastic surgery, there are financing options to make the procedure more affordable. Our staff will be happy to discuss financing with you.
