Our skin naturally begins to sag as we age or lose weight. The extra loose skin is particularly obvious in the upper arms and thighs and can make wearing t-shirts and shorts a bit awkward. You could try diet and exercise but even that may not work for you. Perhaps there’s just too much excess skin and fat to deal with or for some reason, you hardly had any progress at all.
Increased body confidence is at the heart of what our doctors do at Elite Plastic Surgery. Our highly experienced plastic surgeons, Dr. Rozbeh Torabi and Dr. Radbeh Torabi, can help you restore your toned, youthful body profile with arm and thigh lift.
What is an Arm Lift?
Whether you’re wearing a gorgeous strapless dress or your go-to t-shirt, beautifully sculpted upper arms are always adorable. If you’re looking to get rid of saggy upper arms through surgery, then an arm lift is the option to consider.
Arm lift or Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure performed to tighten loose, sagging skin on the arms. Excess skin and fat deposits are removed from the inner side of the upper arm while the remaining skin is drawn more tightly to create a firmer, younger look.
It is performed as an outpatient procedure in under two to four hours. Most of the time, patients can go home right after the procedure but are advised to refrain from their usual routine for faster recovery. For this procedure, your doctor will make an incision under the inner arm and remove any excess skin to reveal a more toned upper arm.
The extent of the incision depends on your skin quality and elasticity and how much fat, tissue, and skin have to be removed to achieve the results you’re happy with. If you’re worried about the resulting scars, Dr. Rozbeh and Dr. Radbeh Torabi use innovative surgical techniques to make the arm lift safer, more convenient and leave the least amount of scarring possible.
Ideal candidates for an arm lift are men and women who have loose, sagging skin from the underside of their upper arm. This procedure isn’t only for weight loss patients but for anyone who’s healthy and wants to achieve toned athletic-looking upper arms.
What is a Thigh Lift?
Sexy thighs are always in fashion. Aside from boobs and butts, smooth and toned thighs always get compliments, even in men. If you’re looking to achieve a slimmer thigh profile, our surgeons at Elite Plastic Surgery can give you just that, providing you with care unique to your needs.
A thigh lift is similar to an arm lift. The main difference is thigh lifts are performed on your thighs. During the procedure, your surgeon will make a cut on the upper and inner thighs to remove excess skin and fat and tighten the remaining skin for a slimmer thigh profile.
Depending on your skin quality and the amount of fat, tissue, and skin that have to be removed, one or more areas may be lifted. There are many types of thigh lifts so you’ll want to have your surgeon walk you through the whole process.
Thigh lifts are performed under general or local anesthesia on an outpatient basis and take about two to four hours depending on the extent of the procedure. It will take a while before complete recovery occurs but the results are dramatic. Patients who have undergone thigh lifts reported a smoother skin appearance and firmer, more desirable thighs.
