Upper arm lift procedures
An upper arm lift is typically performed with the patient under general anesthesia or conscious sedation. Prior to the day of surgery, the patient will meet with Dr. Nesmith to discuss details of the procedure, desired results, and answer any questions the patient may have.
On the day of surgery, the doctor will make marks on the patient's upper arms to use as a guideline for the incisions and loose skin removal. Dr. Nesmith may recommend liposuction as well to remove excess fat from the upper arms.
Liposuction is a safe way to remove excess fat cells, leaving the upper arm smoother, smaller, and more toned than before. Brachioplasty is one of the most popular procedures performed by our Gainesville plastic surgeons.
