About Arm Lift & Thigh Lift at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
It feels great to improve your health and your appearance by losing a significant amount of weight. Unfortunately, the stretched skin can lose its elasticity and leave you wanting to keep your arms and legs covered up. Dr. Anthony Deboni and Dr. Gregory Baum, both board-certified plastic surgeons, can help you restore tighter body contours through cosmetic surgery. Arm and leg lift surgery can give Syracuse patients the self confidence to go sleeveless and wear shorts once again.
Arm and leg lift surgery helps our Syracuse patients get rid of loose, sagging skin that is caused by weight loss or the aging process. These procedures are most appropriate for adults who have reached a healthy, stable weight.
- Arm lift, technically called brachioplasty, sculpts and tightens the upper arms with an incision that runs along the inside of the arm from underarm to elbow. If you have only mild sagging that is concentrated near the armpits, you could be a candidate for a “mini” arm lift. This minimally invasive version involves only a small incision that can be concealed in the underarm.
- Leg or thigh lift, technically called thighplasty, removes excess skin and fat from the thighs. This procedure can improve the appearance of the inner thighs, outer thighs, or all the way around the upper leg. Your doctor will make every effort to conceal the incisions in locations where the resulting scars will be least noticeable.
These procedures are often performed as part of a comprehensive body contouring plan that can also include procedures like a tummy tuck, breast lift, and breast reduction or liposuction near Syracuse. During your consultation, Dr. Baum or Dr. Deboni will work with you to customize a treatment plan that is tailored to the unique needs of your body, as well as your improvement goals and lifestyle.
