ARM LIFT & THIGH LIFT / ARM LIFT (Brachioplasty)
· To have a more youthful appearance and thinner contour to the arms.
· To remove the excess skin that make your arms look 'sagging'.
· To forget about flabbiness and extra skin, especially in the upper inner arms.
· To forget about folds of skin of the upper chest near the armpit, seen especially when the arms are down at the sides.
HOW WILL THE PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?
The incision may be completely concealed within the armpit, or down the inside of the arm in an inconspicuous location for a variable length depending on how much skin and where the excess is.
Our surgeons approach arm lifts to meet your specific needs. This means adequately assessing the excess skin and excess fat (if any is present). Each of these components will determine which procedure is best for you. The incisions required are determined by the severity of your condition. Minimal skin excess may be treated with an incision in the armpit alone. Moderate laxity is treated with an incision from the armpit to the elbow.
In some instances, your plastic surgeon may recommend that liposuction be used alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms.
Arm lift surgery can be combined with other plastic surgical procedures.
The thighs are a source of frustration for millions of men and women. Many patients have worked tremendously hard to lose circumference, fatty tissue and cellulite from their thighs to little or no avail. Many patients desire toned, slender, shapely legs that are virtually impossible to gain through even the most rigorous exercise regimen.
People who have lost a large amount of weight may experience loose, sagging, excess skin around their thighs. This skin has lost what is known as elasticity. It is stretched and hangs. Men and women with this condition may be ideal candidates for a thigh lift surgery.
Sometimes, this extra, loose and flabby skin in the thighs can cause quite a bit of discomfort. It rubs when the person is walking. It can make finding clothing that fits comfortably very hard. It can even make bathing and personal hygiene difficult. And, physically it detracts from the natural shape of the thigh area. After working so hard through diet or exercise-or perhaps after undergoing gastric bypass surgery for weight loss-it can be discouraging to look in the mirror and see all of that loose, excess, flabby or dimpled skin around the thighs and buttocks.
If this sounds just like what you hate about your thighs, now's the time to do something about it !!
· To reshape your thighs.
· To remove excess skin from your thighs
· To improve the appearance of your thighs by removing the “dimpled look” produced by cellulite.
· To achieve a more attractive balance and symmetry to the body.
· To forget about the fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise.
HOW WILL THE PROCEDURE BE PERFORMED?
There are several different types of thigh lifts that target certain areas for specific results. During your first consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you your treatment options and the results you can expect from thighplasty (thigh lift).
Inner Thigh Lift
As indicated by its name, an inner thigh lift targets the inner thigh. This surgery is used to treat reduced skin elasticity caused by the aging process or weight loss. During an inner thigh lift, an incision is made at the junction of the thigh and pubic area. A wedge of skin is then removed and the skin in tightened to provide an improved leg contour and enhanced skin elasticity.
Bilateral Thigh Lift
The bilateral thigh lift procedure is designed to tighten skin on the front and outside of the leg. During a bilateral thigh lift, the surgeon makes an incision at the top of the leg where the lower edge of a bikini bottom or pair of underwear would be. A certain amount of skin is then removed before the surgeon pulls the remaining skin up and attaches it to the same area. In this way, a bilateral thigh lift serves to tighten skin along both the right and left side of the leg. This procedure is especially helpful to those who have excess skin after an extreme weight loss.
Medial Thigh Lift
A medial thigh lift reduces excess skin on the upper portion of the inner thigh. It is designed for patients who are dissatisfied with the shape of their legs or who would like to remove excess skin after an extreme weight loss. During a medial thigh lift procedure, an incision is made in the groin that goes to the back of the crease of the buttock. Skin in then lifted to improve the shape of the leg and tighten the skin.
