Patients who have lost an exceptional amount of weight from their bodies through diet, exercise, or bariatric surgery are often excited to be living a healthier lifestyle. However, the excess skin left behind from fast decreases in fat and weight can often hinder one’s ability to wear more revealing clothing they have always wanted as part of their wardrobe. Both men and women who are faced with excess skin laxity on the body following weight loss will want to consider the advantages of a brachioplasty.
What is brachioplasty?
A brachioplasty is essentially a procedure that is commonly known as a body lift. It can be utilized to remove excess skin throughout the body that may be left behind from extensive weight loss. Skin laxity is a common complaint in men and women who have achieved significant weight loss. Brachioplasty may include a range of different body treatments including:
- Upper arms
The brachioplasty treatment available with Dr. Ellen Mahony and her staff may actually provide treatment on various areas of the body at once. Excess skin is removed, and the skin is sutured in less obvious areas of the body to ensure minimal scarring appearance. Some patients may also combine this treatment with liposuction to remove excess fat cells in areas that may not have responded to these changes and may impact the final results. Patients who have brachioplasty performed will enjoy better body contours along with tighter, firmer skin around the entire body. This treatment is highly recommended for anyone who wants to show off the results of their hard work and significant weight loss!
