Dr. Douglas Humphreys Speaks on the Benefits of the Arm Lift Procedure

Dr. Douglas Humphreys of Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery discusses the many aesthetic and physical benefits of the arm lift procedure.

The arm lift procedure, also known as a brachioplasty, is growing in popularity among both women and men. Dr. Douglas Humphreys of Macleod Trail Plastic Surgery explains the procedure's various aesthetic and physical benefits.

According to recent plastic surgery statistics, the number of upper arm lifts performed has skyrocketed over the past decade. The procedure's popularity is also tied to its option as a post bariatric procedure. Following substantial weight loss or after bariatric surgery, many patients are left with excessive, sagging skin.

"The presence of loose skin and folds oftentimes cannot be remedied through exercise and toning regimens alone," says Dr. Humphreys. "Brachioplasty corrects this issue, lending a more toned and sculpted appearance to the arms."

Dr. Humphreys, who was certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, often performs brachioplasties, as well as various other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, at MacLeod Trail Plastic Surgery in Calgary, Alberta.

As well as drastically improving the appearance of the arms, a brachioplasty helps patients feel more comfortable physically, as they no longer have cumbersome and uncomfortable extra skin hindering their movements. This makes it easier to exercise and do other daily activities.

The aesthetic benefits of a brachioplasty also help patients feel more confident in their body and of their overall appearance. Many patients report an increase in self esteem after the arm-sculpting procedure, which helps their clothes fit better as well. Rejuvenating, reshaping and slimming the arms can also help make a patient's body look more proportionate.

Dr. Humphreys notes that the best candidates for brachioplasty are adults who are in good overall physical health and who do not smoke. It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations of the surgery and how it can help them achieve their desired results, which will be reviewed during their consultation with Dr. Humphreys.
