Arm and Thigh Lift in Milwaukee and Waukesha
Arm Lift and Thigh Lift
Shapely legs and arms are distinctive features of health and vitality. Extensive weight loss or the natural aging process can cause your upper arms or thighs to have a sagging appearance. An Arm Lift and Thigh Lift removes excess skin, and in some cases fat, that does not respond to fitness efforts. The result is smoother skin and toned, better-proportioned contours of the arms and thighs.
About an Armlift (Brachioplasty)
Many patients come to our Milwaukee area offices complaining of hanging skin on the underside of the arm which frequently occurs following extensive weight loss, or simply from the natural aging process. An arm lift is a body sculpting surgery performed by our board-certified plastic surgeons. The procedure is designed to remove loose or hanging skin in the area for a more toned appearance and sleeker contour around the arms.
About a Thigh Lift
The thighs may be affected by both a fat collection and saggy skin, which can produce an unpleasant contour that does not respond to diet and exercise. A thigh lift involves liposuction as well as the removal of excess skin to restore a healthier-looking contour. If excessive fat is the main problem, liposuction alone may improve the condition.
Arm or Thigh Lift Consultation
A personal consultation is the first step for anyone considering an arm lift or thigh lift. During this meeting, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will assess your physical and emotional health and discuss your specific goals for surgery.
Arm or thigh lift Surgery
Your arm or thigh lift will be performed at our in-house surgical centers, offering the utmost comfort and privacy.
An arm lift can take from 1-2 hours. The incision for an arm lift depends on the amount and location of excess skin. Incisions are generally placed on the inside or the back of the arm, and may extend to just above your elbow. Excess fat will be removed with liposuction. Underlying supportive tissue is tightened and the skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.
A thigh lift can take between 2-4 hours. Incisions for a thigh lift will also depend on the areas that need to be treated. Common incisions are in the groin, extending down and around the back of the thigh or from the grown to the outer hip. A medial thigh lift involves an incision only in the groin area.
Our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons will assist you in deciding how the areas should be treated to achieve your specific goals. Results from an arm or thigh lift can be noticed almost immediately, but it may take several months for the final results to fully develop.
