Get Rid of Drooping “Batwings”

As we age, gravity has its way with our bodies, and our upper arms aren’t immune to this. With the passing years, the soft tissue in the upper arms becomes loose and begins to sag and droop. Also, fat can accumulate in the upper arms, even if the person is at or near their ideal weight. This leads to the dreaded “bat wing” phenomenon, where the skin on the upper arms actually swings back and forth with arm movement. It’s enough to make a woman avoid the sleeveless fashions of summer! But Dr. Aydin can give you back the contoured upper arms of your younger days with an arm lift in New Jersey. Clinically known as brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes your arms to a more toned, slimmer profile by removing excess fat and sagging skin.

What Is an Arm Lift?

If you have unwanted, hanging tissue that’s developed on your upper arms due to aging, weight fluctuations, or genetic factors, Dr. Aydin can recontour them using expert techniques to enhance your overall body proportions. The New Jersey arm lift procedure can be especially helpful for individuals who have undergone significant weight loss, leaving excess loose skin that holds them back from seeing the full aesthetic benefits of their weight loss journey. With an arm lift, you can confidently wear sleeveless or fitted clothing.

Arm Lift Surgery Details

Due to the length of the area to be contoured, an arm lift creates a lengthy incision. Dr. Aydin usually makes the incision from the underarm to the elbow, along the inside of the upper arm. Excess fat is removed with liposuction, excess skin is trimmed, and underlying muscle tissue is tightened where necessary.

In some cases, where the sagging isn’t extensive, Dr. Aydin can use what is known as a minimal-incision technique. In these cases, he makes a few small incisions near the underarm rather than one long incision on each arm. Obviously, the two of you will discuss which method will work best for you during your consultation.

Ozempic and Your Weight Loss Journey

Originally approved for diabetes, Ozempic, a medication with the active ingredient semaglutide, works by mimicking a hormone that regulates appetite and food intake, reducing hunger and the amount of calories consumed.

For weight loss, semaglutide increases feelings of fullness, delays stomach emptying, and influences brain pathways that control appetite, significantly reducing body weight.  During significant weight loss, especially when it occurs rapidly, many people experience a reduced fat mass but are left with excess skin.

The skin is a highly elastic organ designed to stretch and adapt to changes in body shape and size; however, its ability to retract varies based on the length of time the skin was stretched, the amount of weight lost, age, genetics, and overall skin health.  Over time, the skin loses collagen and elastin—proteins that provide elasticity and firmness—which can impair its ability to snap back after significant stretching. This is why individuals who lose a substantial amount of weight often have loose, sagging skin, particularly in areas like the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks, making a surgical intervention, such as an arm lift in NJ, the best option for restoring a natural-looking contour where your skin matches your new form.

What Is Arm Lift Recovery Like?

Recovery from brachioplasty in New Jersey is not difficult. You will return home with bandages and possibly drainage tubes on your incisions. You’ll need to wear compression garments on both arms to minimize swelling and help your arms adapt to their new contour. Most of the swelling subsides in two weeks, and patients can usually return to work at that time.

Arm Lift FAQ

How long will I be recovering?

1-4 weeks

How long is the procedure?

2-3 hours; it may be conducted under local anesthesia, depending on the case.

Who should get an arm lift?

If you’re embarrassed by the loose, hanging skin below your upper arms, an arm lift could be a good procedure for you. Whether you’ve gained and lost weight or whether time just hasn’t been kind to your upper arms, an arm lift can return their contour. However, an arm lift is not intended to be any sort of weight loss procedure; potential candidates need to be at or near their ideal weight and in good health. The surgery also creates a lengthy scar, so it isn’t something to take lightly.

What is the price of an arm lift in New Jersey?

The starting price for an arm lift with Dr. Aydin is $5,500. We also offer payment plans and financing options to make paying for your procedure as easy as possible.
