4 Things to Consider Before Getting an Arm Lift in Phoenix or Scottsdale

Saggy arms are a common nuisance as you age. While you may have noticed the excess skin under your arms getting longer as each year passes, arm sagginess is caused by more than natural collagen losses. Other causes include genetics, rapid weight loss, or stopping an exercise program.  This is where an arm lift (brachioplasty) can help. If you’ve tried exercising and toning up to no avail, an arm lift may offer the corrections you desire. Here are four things you need to know about this procedure.

1. An arm lift reduces fatty tissues

A loss of collagen can make your arm skin sag. Additionally, fatty tissues can enhance the gravitational pull of your arm skin, causing the unwanted saggy motions. Part of the purpose of an arm lift in Scottsdale or Phoenix is to reduce the amount of fatty tissues to thwart these effects. We may also recommend liposuction in the area to maximize your results.

2. Small scarring is possible

Any type of surgery poses the risk of bleeding, infection, and anesthesia side effects. Slight scarring underneath your upper arm is also possible with this type of plastic surgery. However, the benefits of a more contoured arm usually outweigh the risk of scarring for most patients.

3. You’ll see results within a few weeks

After the initial incision are made in your upper/backsides of your arms, you will need to wait a couple of weeks to remove the stitches. It may also take a few weeks for bruising and swelling to fully disappear. After this time, you should start seeing more shapely arms.

4. Arm lifts don’t replace exercise

While an arm lift can correct saggy skin, this technique is only recommended when other methods have failed. Examples include fat-burning aerobics and strength-training. An arm lift won’t do you any good if you aren’t already exercising—otherwise, the saggy skin you pay to get rid of will ultimately come back.

If you’re tired of saggy, droopy arms and want to do something about them, give us a call for a consultation today. We will go over the arm lift procedure in Phoenix or Scottsdale with you to determine if it’s the best fit for your goals.

I was so pleased with the honesty and concern for my best interest that not only did the Dr. provide but also Rosie. They want you to be completely happy with your results and offer an honest opinion of what procedures will help you obtain that result. The nurses are so friendly and helpful before and after the procedure. I would and will refer Dr. Zavala to my friends and family.

Every time I came to the office the whole staff was always very nice and welcoming. The day of my surgery the nurses took great care of me and made me feel comfortable. The doctor is very nice as well. Also my boy did not react well to one of the medications and Dr. Zavala kept me longer to make sure I was ok and the nurses kept a close eye on me. They were all so sweet. I am very thankful for that!
