Case Number 1071: Arm lifting surgery

This 58-year old patient from Murrieta, California (Riverside County) came in to see Dr. Pousti regarding arm lifting surgery (brachioplasty). As she got older, she became unhappy with how the skin of her arms “hung down” and she wanted them more proportionate to her body.

The effects of aging on the skin are familiar to all of us. Over time, the skin changes in four ways: it loses thickness, loses elasticity, loses adherence to the underlying tissue, and is affected by gravity. The amount of elastic tissue and collagen present in the dermis also decreases. One area where these changes are especially apparent is the upper arm. An arm lift–or brachioplasty–can lift and tighten up loose skin in the upper arms, resulting in a firmer, more youthful contour.

When she met with Dr. Pousti and his staff, she discussed her goals and she felt very comfortable with choosing Dr. Pousti for her surgeon. She viewed before and after photos and discussed the risks and complications of the procedure.

Dr. Pousti met with this patient prior to surgery to perform the “markings”. These markings are very important to the operation. Care must be taken to remove identical amounts to achieve symmetry between the two sides of the body.

The patient is now 6-months post-op surgery and is very pleased with her results.

Patient Testimonial: 
I had been considering brachioplasty arm lift for several years but found it was not a procedure offered by many plastic surgeons, especially in the Temecula Murrieta area. One night, while searching on the Internet, I found Dr. Pousti, and I am very glad that I did. He and his office staff have been a class act all the way, from initial consultation through post-op check-ups. Dr. Pousti has consistently conducted himself in a highly professional manner while continually offering support and kindness. His skill as a surgeon has given me a more than satisfactory result. It is a great feeling to glance down at my arms or see them in a mirror and no longer feel that inner cringe of dismay at the sight of loose skin and wrinkles. Dr. Pousti gave me what years of lifting weights could never achieve. I am very grateful and glad I did it
