What is a Brachioplasty?
During a brachioplasty or arm lift, the under portion of the upper part of the arm is reshaped. Excess skin can be caused by aging, heredity or weight changes. While exercise helps the muscle tone, nothing can be done to restore lost elasticity or weak tissue. The surgical procedure will reduce skin and fat from the elbow to the underarm, reshape the arm and result in a more toned appearance.
An upper arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. A surgeon makes an incision from the elbow to the underarm, and in some cases, to the side of the chest. In some cases, liposuction will also occur with this surgery. Ultimately, the procedure depends on the amount of skin and fat in the area. Some people can simply have one incision in their underarm, while others need more extensive cutting in order to remove excess skin and fat and tighten tissue to create that toned look.
How much does it cost?
The average cost for a Brachioplasty in Tijuana is $2,500 USD. Plastic Surgery will vary in cost depending on the type of procedure that is chosen. Other factors include the size of the patient as well as the location of the facility that is chosen. In the United States, arm lift surgery may range between $4,000 and $6,000. Surgical costs may or may not include anesthetics and consultations and surgeon's fees, so always ask.
How to find the right Surgeon
Brachioplasty is an outpatient procedure, and should only be performed by a Plastic Surgeon in a properly regulated facility. Plastic Surgeons should be certified and trained in at least eight years of plastic surgery. Always ask for the doctors accreditations and verify that the information provided by the doctors is up to date.
