I was very pleased with Dr. Picard-Ami and the cosmetic surgery he did on me five months ago. Dr. Picard-Ami was professional, very thorough from the first correspondence we had and extremely prompt in responding to any of my questions and concerns before and after surgery. My husband and I stayed at the Marriott which is located in the same complex as Dr. Picard-Ami’s office is. His staff took care of every detail from transporting me to the clinic where only plastic surgery is done (no worry of being with any Covid patients), kept my husband informed of everything during and after my surgery and checked on me daily. Walking to their offices after the surgery for follow up appointments was easy and convenient. Having any procedure during a pandemic is scary but at no time was I apprehensive about the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Picard-Ami and his staff if you are considering cosmetic surgery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and it was as painless as they promised.

What is Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

The objective of the arm lift (also known as Brachioplasty) procedure is to improve the contour in the upper arm by lifting and removing excess fat and skin that has lost its elasticity due to age or fluctuation in weight.

 

A Good Candidate for Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Good Candidates for arm lift surgery are healthy non-smoking individuals that are over the age of 18.

 

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon who will discourse with you the best method(s) to achieve your desired end results. Incisions are made on the inner part of each arm. The lengths of the incisions depend on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. Occasionally, incisions are made from the inside of the upper arm, all the way down to the inner elbow.

 

Excess skin is either cut out surgically, or if stubborn fat deposits are present, the surgeon may choose to remove them via liposuction. Incisions are closed with dissolvable or removable stitches, in which case the patient may or may not be required to return to the hospital for a follow-up visit to have the stitches removed.

 

This procedure is outpatient, which means that the patient can return home the same day of the surgery, unless advised otherwise by the doctor.

 

Average Duration of Arm lift Surgery: 2 hours
