Hanging Decorations without Hanging Skin with Armlift Tampa

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2011 AT 4:56 PM  by Dr. Rigo Mendoza

Lights twirled around trees, outlining houses like gingerbread wonderlands, mistletoe dangling from doorways, and sliver ornaments twinkling on red and green holly decorate houses on every block. When you reach up to drape a set of lights over the bannister this holiday season, however, the lights may not be the only thing hanging. Loose, sagging skin in the upper arms is a common problem as people age. Skin loses its elasticity through the years, and if someone loses sudden, drastic weight, excess skin is likely to occur. Rigo J. Mendoza, M.D. at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa offers brachioplasty, or arm lift in Tampa, which will shape your upper arm to give you a more pleasingly toned and less sagging appearance.

Rigo J. Mendoza, M.D. performs arm lift in Tampa, Florida at Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa or in any of our other Florida locations. Patients are often embarrassed by their sagging skin. Many have worked hard to lose weight, and the reward for their perseverance and dedication is skin that has lost its elasticity. Arm lift in Florida gives patients the upper arms they deserve. General anesthesia is used during the procedure, and the procedure typically takes two to three hours to complete, depending on the extent of the targeted skin and amount of excess fat. Although results from arm lift in Tampa are excellent and satisfying, permanent scars will be visible on the underside or back of the arms after surgery. Patients can usually return to work seven to ten days after arm lift in Tampa. They will be required to wear compression garments for two weeks after surgery, but sutures will dissolve on their own.

Hang ornaments, cinnamon sticks, and wreaths this holiday season without the self-conscious embarrassment of sagging, excess upper arm skin. Let flickering lights and burned cookies be your only concern while family and friends gather and remark on how lovely your decorations and your arms look this December. Rodger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about arm lift.
