“ I recently lost 67 lbs and I had excess skin left after losing all that weight. I couldn't stand how my arms looked after the weight loss so I started searching for a doctor who would perform an arm lift. A friend recommended Dr. Chao and the following week I was in his office talking about the procedure. I'm very pleased with his work and I recommend him to everyone.”
A common procedure for people who have experienced weight loss, the arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes and provides an improved contour to the upper arms and connecting area of the chest wall. The underside of the upper arm is reshaped from the armpit to the elbow, loose skin is tightened and excess fat removed, thus removing the “bat wing” appearance. Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity are some of the factors that cause arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance, which cannot be corrected through exercise.
