Brachioplasty...The Facelift of the Upper Arms
Who is a candidate? If you have unsightly sagging skin on the upper arms due to aging, genetics, or weight loss, you may be an excellent candidate for brachioplasty, or upper arm lift.

The incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location (inner arm). Recovery is usually fairly quick with minimal discomfort. Most swelling and bruising typically go away in two to three weeks.

Patients are happy to wear spaghetti or halter tops, spring dresses and short sleeve blouses again. If treated earlier (late 20s, 30s, or 40s), one may be able to reduce the thickness of the upper arm with Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction alone. This works if the fat is removed at an earlier stage before gravity comes into play and stretches the skin. Early intervention is recommended with a family history of loose upper arm skin.

Contact our Tampa surgical center for more information. We look forward to discussing your options and creating a brand new you.

Thigh-Buttock Lift

If you have experienced a loss of skin elasticity of the thigh, hip, or buttocks area, you may benefit from a thigh-buttock lift.

Dr. Halpern will show you what procedures are available to solve your particular problem. Wide variations in the design of the incisions to meet clothing or personal desires are possible. Lifting the inner thighs requires only short incisions extending from the thigh/groin crease around to the buttock crease.

Lateral, or front thigh lifts, can be performed as separate procedures if desired. Lifting the entire thigh and buttock will require much longer incisions that start in the buttock crease, extend around the groin up over the side of the abdomen, over the flank and across the back.

Bruising and swelling are usually minimal. Exercise can resume in three to four weeks. After recovery is complete, you will experience a tighter, more attractive thigh and buttock area. Improved contours and smooth skin provide renewed confidence and improve overall lifestyle.
