Mommy Makeover and Arm Lift

By Dr. Suzanne Yee on November 12, 2019

A mother and her childPregnancy and childbirth can have a major impact on a woman’s appearance. Getting rid of stretch marks and loose skin can be a challenge, which is why the mommy makeover is available. Combining different body contouring surgeries, the mommy makeover can help women achieve a much slimmer and trimmer frame.

Dr. Suzanne Yee has helped countless women in the Little Rock, AR area by performing mommy makeover treatment. Below, we want to consider how this procedure can improve the appearance of your arms.

The Effects of Weight Gain/Loss on the Arms

Most people think of how pregnancy and weight gain expands the abdominal region. Yet weight gets distributed throughout the body, which includes the shoulders and upper arms. During pregnancy, you may notice the muscle and definition of the arms get covered up with some extra body fat.

After childbirth and subsequent weight loss, you may have some loose skin and flab around the arms, particularly the shoulders and triceps. The undersides of your arms could even hang loose after losing weight, which can be off-putting, and make you feel self-conscious about wearing bathing suits, short sleeves, and sleeveless outfits.

About Arm Lift Surgery

The arm lift (brachioplasty) is a body contouring procedure that can restore the tone and trimness to the upper arm area. The surgery will help remove excess fat and tissue around the shoulder and tricep, and then tighten the skin so you have attractive, athletic arms again. Some liposuction is common during the procedure to help sculpt the arms.

Incision Locations in Arm Lift Surgery

The incision location and length for an arm can vary based on the amount of loose skin a patient has. In most cases, the arm lift incision will start in the armpit and then travel along the underside of the arm so loose skin can be removed. Generally speaking, the more skin to remove, the longer the incision will extend.

During your visit to our Little Rock plastic surgery center, we can assess your situation and determine the ideal length of your arm lift incision. It’s important that we customize the surgery to your needs.

What About Scars from the Arm Lift Surgery?

All efforts are made to minimize the amount of visible scarring after you’ve undergone a mommy makeover. Since arm lift incisions originate in the armpit and travel along the underside of the arm, the scars tend to be difficult to notice. Even if the incision extends all the way to the elbow, scarring tends to be subtle as the tissue fades and blends in with the surrounding skin.

If a patient has a history of poor scarring, we can discuss that during the consultation process and modify the surgery as needed.

The Results of an Arm Lift

Thanks to an arm lift, a mother can feel confident about her appearance and her overall body contour. You can wear short sleeves and bathing suits with confidence, and achieve a renewed sense of self. Most importantly, the results of arm lift surgery look natural.

Creating a Mommy Makeover That’s Right for You

Creating a custom arm lift for your needs is just one way that we can enhance your appearance after having children. We’d love to speak with you about mommy makeovers in more detail during your visit to our practice.
