A Personal Approach to Brachioplasty.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

ABSTRACT: Brachioplasty has become one of the fastest-growing aesthetic surgery procedures, paralleling rising rates of weight loss surgery nationally. However, controversy persists regarding incision placement and utility of concurrent liposuction. In this article, the authors describe indications, patient selection, expected outcomes, and photographic standards for patients seeking brachioplasty after weight loss. Preoperative markings, scar placement, and operative steps of a posterior incision technique with or without concurrent liposuction if indicated are described. A personal experience with posterior incision brachioplasty along with current controversies, complications, and patient-reported outcomes after upper arm contouring are reviewed.
