Upper Arm Reduction Melbourne VIC
Arm Reduction (brachioplasty) Surgery involves treatment of excess skin in the upper arms. (Such excess skin may result in arms being referred to as “bingo arms” or “bat wings”). Commonly this issue arises after a significant amount of weight loss or with the normal ageing process.
Two techniques are possible. The first being a transverse incision with the majority being hidden under the arm pit. The overall effect is not very dramatic. Mr White generally recommends the longitudinal incision which extends along the arm. Whilst it is a long wound it is placed on the inner aspect of the arm to hide it as best as possible. It gives a much more dramatic and effective result.
