Brachioplasty at the University of Ottawa
When the upper arms lose their youthful svelte appearance due to weight fluctuations or aging, Ottawa patients can opt for an arm lift procedure. The aim of a brachioplasty is to contour, tighten and lift the skin, fat and connective tissue for a cosmetically pleasing outcome. An overview of your health and medical history during your consultation will ascertain your treatment candidacy. Your surgeon will then establish a surgical plan to achieve your aesthetic objectives. An incision is made under the inner arm from the elbow to the armpit to minimize visible scarring. Liposuction may be performed to remove excess fat. Once the connective tissue is tightened and lifted, the excess skin is trimmed and redraped to achieve the desired result. Your surgeon will explain what to expect pre-, during and post procedure to ensure your safety, comfort and optimal recovery.
