Brachioplasty – Eliminating Upper Arm Wobble Through Cosmetic Surgery

New York Fashion Week just came to a close, and khaki, bright yellow, and seaside stripes stole the show as some of Spring 2017’s most anticipated trends. Along with these patterns and hues, designers favored bold shoulders and sleeve slits. In fact, an Elle Magazine correspondent reported: “This season, if it isn’t off the shoulder, it isn’t right!”

Sleeve slits are subtly sexy, but take a lot of confidence to pull off. From sagging arm skin to annoying upper arm wobble, sleeve slits will expose our arms biggest flaws for the world to see. So what is a girl to do if she wants to jump on this spring’s trends but isn’t confident with the state of her arms?

Luckily, there is a trending cosmetic surgery procedure that can help patients get the gorgeous arms they have been longing for: brachioplasty.

What is Brachioplasty?

The term brachioplasty sounds fancy, but it is really just the medical term for an arm lift. This cosmetic surgery procedure reduces excess, sagging skin and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm area. It also smooths the supportive tissue under the skin, reshaping and redefining the upper arm. Basically, brachioplasty gets rid of that frustrating upper arm wobble that bothers us whenever we go without sleeves.

Ideal Candidates for Brachioplasty

The majority of brachioplasty candidates are people who have lost weight. After losing a significant amount of weight, skin can be loose and saggy. Brachioplasty restores the elasticity of a patient’s arm skin, revealing the new, fit body that they’ve worked so hard for.

Importantly, however, brachioplasty isn’t just for people who have lost weight. Anyone who has developed upper arm flabbiness due to aging, genetics, or chronic tanning might benefit from an upper arm lift. At one point, even Jennifer Aniston was rumored to be considering the miracle “batwing lift” surgery.

Basically, the ideal candidate for brachioplasty is whoever wants to improve their self-confidence by improving their arms. And there are several people in this category. In 2015, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that there were nearly 26,000 upper arm lift procedures – an increase of roughly 5,000 percent since 2010. As more and more people become aware of the benefits of brachioplasty, this cosmetic procedure will continue to grow in popularity.
