Arm Lift and Brachioplasty for Harrisburg Patients
With the health concerns and social issues surrounding obesity and weight problems in this country, more people are losing dramatic amounts of weight through diet, exercise and/or bariatric surgery. Regardless of the method, losing massive amounts of weight can leave your skin sagging and loose. If you have problems with loose skin of your arms or are concerned about the disproportionate look of your body, then surgical arm lift (brachioplasty) may be a good choice. This procedure improves the contour of the upper arm and dramatically improves the appearance and feel of the skin on the arm. Incisions are placed on the inner arm region within the natural body contours. For people interested in arm lift in Harrisburg with good skin quality, less invasion approaches like the short scar or arm pit incision may be a great option. In other cases liposuction alone, Smartlipo MPX or a combination may offer the best results. Dr. de Ramon's decade of experience in plastic surgery combined with his attention to detail and precise nature ensure consistent results.
There are many things to consider prior to arm lift surgery.
During the consultation about arm lifts for Harrisburg patients, Dr. de Ramon reviews your medical history, discusses your concerns and goals and performs a physical exam. There is opportunity for questions and an explanation of the procedure(s) that will meet your needs. A second consult is recommended for final questions and to discuss risks of surgery. Recovery from an arm lift usually consists of 5-7 days off work and another 4-6 weeks of restrictions on exercise and heavy lifting.
In recent years, insurance companies have changed their policy about coverage of arm lifts or indeed any procedure which removes excess skin. These procedures are no longer considered medically necessary, and therefore they are cosmetic surgery performed to enhance appearance.
