When a person’s upper arms have a great deal of hanging skin, their arms are sometimes disparagingly referred to as “bat wings.” This causes self-consciousness and embarrassment. To correct excess arm skin and reshape the upper arms, patients come in for an arm lift.
The incisions involved with the arm lift procedure are made in the armpits and travel along the insides of the upper arms. They typically reach the elbows. With these incisions, the plastic surgeon is able to trim away loose, drooping upper-arm skin and remove stubborn fatty tissue.
Dr. Geoffrey Keyes, a skilled double-board-certified plastic surgeon, has years of experience with numerous procedures, including the arm lift. Contact our office to arrange an appointment for a complimentary consultation.
