It’s Tank-Top Season: Brachioplasty to tighten up those arms!

Tank-top season is here, and if you’re like millions of us here in the Bay Area, that means showing off those arms! Having tight, well-shaped arms and shoulders is a sign of summer, and brings an added boost of health and confidence to the year’s most popular outdoor season. With a steady workout regimen and good diet, you can have young-looking muscular arms for quite some time. As we age, however, nature does its thing, and for many of us that means skin sagging and wrinkles. That is when a brachioplasty can come into play Luckily, you can tighten up your arms both safely and effectively with a cosmetic procedure that’s both subtle yet noticeable immediately. All arms (like any other part of your body) are built differently, so each person has unique problem areas to address, and we have unique ways of doing so. The most common reason people here in Marin County, Santa Rosa, and San Francisco go for an arm lift/brachioplasty is sagging skin of the upper arms. Loose, wrinkled skin can make us embarrassed to life our arms up while wearing a sleeveless shirt, or even worse, not wanting to wear a sleeveless shirt entirely.

How we perform our arm lift or brachioplasty procedure at Mohebali Plastic surgery

We want to look good in our clothes, in any season. We want to feel comfortable in clothes that are a bit more revealing. We want to take on summer with confidence and style, no matter what our age is. This is why each year, more and more people are turning to arm lifts and other skin tightening cosmetic procedures for help. Our Arm Lift procedure is an outpatient surgery, and typically has a short recovery time, with many patients able to return to work in about a week. Our procedure is done by making an incision beneath the arm that runs the length of the elbow to the armpit in many cases. We then remove excess skin, remove extra fat, tighten the remaining skin, and re-attach it to complete the process. This Arm Lift procedure, though painless, will often leave a subtle scar.

Be prepared for a little scarring, and that’s OK!

We do our best to make scarring as minimal as possible, and can give you some great advice on how to minimize scar visibility after the recovery period has ended. In fact, over time, the scar may fade, which makes it a very worthwhile investment, especially when looking at it aesthetically. Many people in Santa Rosa & Marin County believe that this scarring is much less visible and more comfortable than holding all that extra skin. With the excess skin tightened neatly, you’ll look at the scar as more of a reminder of progress, rather than an eyesore. Plus, you’re only human, and things like that are what help make us unique. Our Arm Lift procedure designed to give every woman the confidence and comfort they deserve, with both safety and discretion at the forefront of what we do.
