43 year old Patient traveled from St Petersburg to consult with our Sarasota plastic surgeons. She lost a lot of weight and had excess loose skin on her arms that prevented her from wearing sleeveless shirts. Desired contouring to fix her ‘bat wings.’
Examination shows severe excess skin on the upper arm, poor elasticity on the upper arm, mild excess fat on the upper arms. Full Brachioplasty was recommended.
Dr. Engel performed a bilateral arm lift, which trimmed away excess skin and tissue, and tightened the remaining skin. The surgical results show a toned arm and a more youthful shape.
The incision runs from the armpit to the elbow, but with proper healing is not as noticeable in the post-operative photos.
