Mini Arm Lift – Traditional Arm Lift Chicago
A brachioplasty, otherwise known as an arm lift, is ideal for those looking to lose that embarrassing hanging arm skin. Do you need a traditional brachioplasty? Possibly a mini arm lift? It all relates to the amount and the location of the skin and fat you’re getting rid of.
If you have less excess skin and fatty tissue, and it’s mostly located near the underarm, a mini arm lift should be effective. With more tissue to remove, a traditional incision may work best.
The technique you choose with your surgeon will define the length of the incisions on your upper arms. The traditional incision will go between your underarm and your elbow, but the mini arm lift incision stays within the underarm area.
