Brachioplasty: A Procedure That Improves the Contour of Your Arms

Have you recently looked at your arms and thought, how do I get rid of this pesky hanging skin? If so, you aren’t alone. In fact, millions of men and women all over the world are looking for ways to remove loose skin on their upper arms, especially if they’ve recently lost a lot of weight. At the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Skin Care Center, we have a solution to this problem. It’s called Brachioplasty, which is a procedure that improves the contour of your arms. Dr. Genter, one of the best plastic surgeons in Philadelphia, PA, and the neighboring communities, performs this surgery to help improve your appearance.

What is Brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty is a procedure that is otherwise known as an arm lift. If you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight, and now you notice unwanted hanging or loose skin on your arms, this surgery can help. In fact, it may be the solution that you need to regain your confidence just in time for the summer.

Who Can Benefit?

The people who will benefit most from Brachioplasty are those who have lost a lot of body weight. Although weight loss is a considerable achievement, it can often lead to uncomfortable, excess skin on the body. Your upper arms happen to be one of the areas where excess skin accumulates. If you fit this description, and you’d like to get rid of the excess skin hanging from your arms, you’d benefit from this procedure.

What’s Involved in This Procedure?

Under general anesthesia, Dr. Genter will make an incision from the armpit area toward the elbow (on the back of the arm). The length of the incision will depend on the amount of excess skin. In some cases, a minimal incision, hidden in the armpit, is used (minimal incision brachioplasty-MIB).  He will then remove a precise amount of excess skin and fat before sutures are placed to close the incisions and tighten the tissue. Once the surgery is completed, the patient’s arms will have a better contour and less excess skin.

If you think that you could benefit from Brachioplasty or any other plastic surgery treatment including liposuction in Philadelphia, PA, please give us a call at 215-240-6758.

Why You Should Consider Liposuction This Spring

Spring is almost here, and you probably know what that means – it’s time to get in shape for summer vacation! The summer season also means bikini season for many, and people all over America are wondering how to get in shape to impress their loved ones, while also making strangers just a little bit jealous.

At The Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Skin Care Center, we offer a variety of plastic surgery treatments and procedures, including liposuction in Philadelphia, PA, and the surrounding areas. We believe that liposuction is one of the best ways to get in shape for the summer because it helps rid your body of fat in a number of selected areas. Here’s why you should consider liposuction this spring.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a fat removal procedure that contours your body and brings it back to a desirable proportion while also improving your overall shape. Although it’s not a weight loss solution, it will help you reduce the amount of fat on certain parts of your body by removing persistent fat deposits that won’t go away even if you change your diet or follow exercise plans.

What areas can liposuction treat?

Liposuction can treat many different areas of your body. In fact, almost any part of your body can be treated nowadays. The most common areas include the abdomen, back, chest (for males), buttocks, knees, hips, under the chin, and more. Pairing this procedure with your own diet and exercise plan can help get you on the right track to getting into the best shape of your life.

Why do people get liposuction?

The number one reason that people get liposuction is to contour and improve the shape of their body. If you’re looking to improve your overall appearance before the summer this year, then we recommend this treatment to help get you started on the right path.

At The Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Skin Care Center, we offer many other treatments along with liposuction. Led by Dr. Genter, a hair loss specialist serving Philadelphia, PA, and other local areas, we’ll provide these services to improve your appearance and increase your confidence.
