Brachioplasty surgery aims to address upper arm skin excess by excision of skin and fatty tissue resulting in the appearance of toned upper arms.
The surgery can be corrective to address excess skin which may be unsightly and can result in skin irritation, infections and issues with hygiene. The excess skin may result from weight loss following bariatric surgery, diet and exercise or following pregnancy.
The aim of the pre-operative consultation is to determine the patient’s expectations of the procedure, and to communicate with the patient any potential limitations to achieving their desired goals.Brachioplasty is significant surgery. Patients need to be fully aware of the adjustment in appearance they will experience, as well as the post-operative process and surgical risks involved. Patients will need to allow one hour for their initial consultation.
The surgeon will need to assess the patient in regard to the extent of excess skin, the quality of their skin, and fat deposits.
Brachioplasty surgery is best considered when a patient’s weight has been stable for at least 3 months. In appropriate patients, liposuction can also be used during brachioplasty.
