After losing a significant amount of weight, this patient came to expert plastic surgeon, Dr. Francesco Campanile, because she was unhappy with the excess skin and fat in her arms. When a significant amount of weight is lost, although the fat may have disappeared, the skin does not gain back it's elasticity. The result is excess skin that cannot be gotten rid of through either diet or exercise.
After reviewing this patient's case, Dr. Campanile recommended an arm lift procedure. During this procedure, excess skin and fat is removed from the arm in an elliptical shape. It is then sutured back together, giving the arms a more taught and toned look. The main concern patients have with this procedure is the scarring- it is not as easily concealed compared to other cosmetic procedures. As a result, Dr. Campanile chooses to place the final scar on the backside of the arm, rather than the underside of the arm as in the traditional arm lift technique. Dr. Campanile has found that this scar location is much more easily concealed, and patient satisfaction is much higher. Patient's can also be guaranteed that Dr. Campanile performs all of his own suturing, ensuring an expert plastics closure and therefore more minimal scarring.
This patient is shown here approximately 2 months after her arm lift procedure with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Francesco Campanile. As you can see, her arms look much more toned and taught, and the excess skin and skin laxity is no longer present. She is very happy with her results and feels confident in how her arms look.
