The upper arm has a particular tendency to gather fat. As this occurs, the skin in the upper arms, stretches out. If there is a weight loss in the arms, the excessive skin is very difficult, or even impossible, to be removed. In order to solve either of these issues, an arm lift may be necessary if all non-surgical methods have failed. By trimming excess fat and removing excess skin, Dr. Tzamantaki’s arm lift gives patients toned, slim upper arms.
MAKING THE RIGHT DECISION
Unlike a rhinoplasty or a face lift, the need for an arm lift can sometimes be eliminated through diet and exercise. For this reason, Dr. Tzamantaki urges her patients to exhaust all methods of natural weight loss before even considering getting an arm lift. The ideal candidate for an arm lift is in good shape and relatively close to her/his ideal body weight. So, if the arms still carry excessive fat, skin or both, it may be time to consider an arm lift.
In order to ensure her patients will receive the best arm lift, Dr. Tzamantaki has developed a unique surgical philosophy. Rather than accepting any patients for an arm lift based on their ability to pay, she goes above and beyond to determine, what the best course of action is truly. After a rigorous consultation process, her surgical plan will be in coordination with her patients’ goals and she will achieve their goals and desires. If Dr. Tzamantaki accepts a patient for an arm lift, it is because years of experience have shown her that she will sincerely provide with the desired results.
Prior to an arm lift, Dr. Tzamantaki’s consultation is a turning point for any patient’s cosmetic journey. After learning about your personal goals, she then reviews your “aesthetic profile” by gathering anatomical information to determine the best course of action. During an arm lift procedure, Dr. Tzamantaki takes your entire body into account, not just your arms. In this way she can measure your results to be proportionate, flattering and perfect.
While independent research is helpful for educational purposes, it will never fully relate to an arm lift to your body. During a consultation at Dr. Tzamantaki in her office, your plastic surgery education goes beyond general information and becomes a personalized experience. With her exceptional good taste, she will assess the best options for you.
