A brachioplasty, also known as an “arm lift”, is a surgical procedure that aims to correct what is commonly referred to in Newfoundland as “Bingo Arms” or “Bat Wings”. This procedure reshapes the upper arm by removing excess/sagging skin and tissue. Loose skin in this area can be a result of the aging process or more commonly, significant weight loss.
How it works.
A brachioplasty involves surgical removal of excess skin and fat that exists in the upper arm (from the underarm to the elbow). The underlying supportive tissue is tightened and localized pockets of fat in the upper arm are removed, in turn creating a smoother look. Dr. Seal makes the incision in an area that isn’t easily visible.
