This is a surgery that helps you improve the look of your underarms. The sagging skin in the underarm is due by aging, heredity or
weight loss. Even if you exercise the remaining excess skin won’t go away you
have to go into surgery to remove it. This is perfect to shape your arm, and
get a more proportionate look. Sometimes the surgeon has to do some liposuction
in the underarm to take excess fat out giving you a better result.
How do we performed at Family Hospital? The surgeon would make an incision in the underarm
between your axial or armpit and your elbow. He would do liposuction if it’s
necessary to remove fat. He would remove the excess skin and tight the skin in
your underarm. He would close the incision with stitches ( monocryl dissolvable ). This will give you a
thinner and proportionate arm. You can see the results right away after the
surgery. This kind of surgery can leave you a scar in your underarm which will
disappear with time.
