Significant weight loss and natural aging can cause a patient’s arm skin to become loose and flabby. This excess skin can be the cause of embarrassment and limit clothing choices.
At his plastic surgery office in Altamonte Springs, Florida, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Papanicolaou performs comprehensive consultations for arm lift plastic surgery to remove the excess skin and fat to reveal thinner, tighter-looking arms.
During the arm treatment, Dr. Papanicolaou will make incisions on the underside of the forearm. Excess fat will be removed through liposuction, and underlying muscles will be strengthened and held in place. Next, any excess skin will be trimmed away and tightened. Dr. Papanicolaou will close these incisions with small sutures. Initial discomfort is easily controlled by oral medication. Most patients return to light normal activity after several days.
Being board certified, Dr. Papanicolaou encourages all patients to learn as much about the process before undergoing an arm treatment & encourages his patients to gather as much information as possible and to direct questions to his friendly staff at any time.
