Amazing Arms are Possible
Whether you have excess fat and skin on your arms because you are overweight or because you have lost weight and your arms have refused to tone up no matter what exercise you do, this problem can be a major source of embarrassment. If this is an issue for you, you may find yourself trying to cover them using longer sleeves or by wearing ¾ to long sleeve shirts. Women may refrain from wearing short sleeves or sleeveless shirts or certain dresses. Fortunately, there is an alternative – arm lift surgery, otherwise known as Brachioplasty.
A Precise Approach
A mini arm lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that focuses on reducing excess fat and skin that has accumulated on your upper arms, with the goal of removing it so that they look slimmer, more toned, and more youthful. This is not the full arm lift and is great for a younger patient looking to avoid the full arm lift later in life and avoid the longer scar from the full lift. The incision is very small and kept within the arm pit so even in short sleeves you secret is safe with us. Your Boca Raton Minimal Incision Arm Lift can also be performed as part of a Mommy Makeover or in conjunction with other cosmetic body treatment procedures, including liposuction, tummy tuck, thigh lift, and breast lift, especially for individuals who have lost a lot of weight.

There are further benefits, such as wearing short- or long-sleeved clothing without feeling self-conscious or ridding yourself of the "bat wing" appearance on your arms. Patients who have undergone an arm lift operation report feeling and appearing more confident after their procedure. With a Minimal Incision Arm Lift Boca Raton patients can:
Expert in Minimal Incision Arm Lift
Many people believe that stubborn fat and excess skin is most likely to accumulate on their stomach, hips, and thighs. While this is common, another area that tends to be affected by this problem is your arms. Fluctuations in your weight during your lifetime, as well as aging and hereditary factors, can all contribute towards the development of drooping and sagging of the upper arms – a problem that cannot always be corrected by diet and exercise alone. Dr. Albert of the Optimization Centre has been featured on ABC, NBC, and CBS for his Minimal Incision Arm Lifts in Boca Raton, where the incisions are hidden within the underarm or axilla. With this new positioning of the incision, the resulting scar is virtually unnoticeable and heals remarkably well.
In some cases, a traditional arm lift with a longer incision is needed to achieve the best results. However, with the Minimal Incision Arm Lift surgery, the incision is placed within the Axilla and normal creases of the armpit so that it is virtually invisible. After the incision has been made, liposuction is performed to remove the fatty deposits that are causing your arm to look flabby. Once this is complete, the skin is pulled tight and the excess removed, you will be left with upper arms that are smoother and more contoured, giving them a toned and youthful appearance.
Depending on the chosen treatment, you may need a few days to a week or more to feel better. After surgery, you can feel stiffness, swelling, and bruising that lasts for a few weeks. Compression garments or dressings can be worn around the arms to reduce edema, increase circulation, and speed recovery. Suitably sized bandages should be worn for up to six weeks. Two to four weeks is all it takes to get back to work, but in those weeks, you need to avoid any severe physical activity. Enlarged hands might develop due to repetitive motions and gravity. This is quite typical and should resolve on its own. When used together, elevating the affected area and applying compression will help keep swelling at bay.
Once the swelling goes down, your underlying muscular definition will become more apparent as your arms appear smaller. Your arm lift surgery does not add muscle mass but enhances muscle definition. You'll be able to flaunt your favorite sleeveless and tank tops with pride.
Any discomfort will be managed. Dr. Albert prides himself in keeping his patients comfortable after surgery.
The Minimal Incision Arm Lift, or Brachioplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that is often not covered by health plans. The Optimization Centre does, however, provide a variety of payment plans and financing options for your ease of use.
