Arm Lift

Over time, skin begins to lose its elasticity from many factors such as aging, genetics, gravity, pregnancy and nursing. Any one of these things can cause your breasts to lose their shape and droop. If you are looking to bring back the figure you once had, Dr. McIntosh offers patients the option of a breast lift in Bellevue. Take a minute to read about this procedure before scheduling your initial consultation at our office today.


How Are Arm Lifts Performed?

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, varies depending on your body and the results you want for yourself. Often, patients have excess skin that can involve most of the upper arm. The initial incision typically runs along the inner arm and even within the armpit, falling within natural creases. If there is severe skin excess, the incision may need to extend just past the elbow. Extra skin is removed and the incision is closed with dissolving stitches placed under the skin. The result is an immediate improvement in sagging skin of the upper arms.

Scarring can subside with time, and we even offer laser and microneedling treatments to further improve scars. The entire surgery takes about 2 hours, and discomfort and swelling subside within a week or two. Patients of Dr. McIntosh are excited to wear short sleeves and not feel self-conscious about their sagging arms after their surgery.

Our Bellevue patients have experienced amazing results from the arm lift procedures performed by Dr. McIntosh. If you are looking to correct your floppy, sagging arms, give us a call to schedule your consultation.

All of your options will be carefully reviewed between Dr. McIntosh and yourself before your arm lift surgery, ensuring each patient’s utmost comfort.
