How would you feel if you could wear tops that highlight your figure? The loose skin and excess fat on your upper arms may be resistant despite following a diet and exercise regime.

From start to finish the entire experience couldn’t have been easier. Consultations were never rushed. All aspects of surgery were discussed and I felt completely at ease with my decision. Two months after surgery and I couldn’t be happier.
I knew the minute I walked out of his office I would be using Dr. Izquierdo. I had met with 5 other doctors for the same surgery and he met all expectations start to finish.
Having surgery of any kind is scary, but Dr. Izquierdo is very comforting and reassuring making this very first elective experience easier.
Brachioplasty surgery requires 1-3 hours of surgery in an out patient surgical facility under general anesthesia. Liposuction is often used concomitantly to remove excess fat. A typical scar is placed in your arm pit and may extend down the inside groove of the arm. At times, modification of the length of the scar can be made to decrease it's visibility when wearing short sleeves or a sleeveless top. All attempts to minimize your scars will be made.
Dr. Izquierdo will assess your options for reduction of the upper arms. At times a combination of procedures may achieve a better result.
"Have had a wonderful experience from the first appointment all the way through from the office staff to Dr. Izquierdo. I feel wonderful and love my new look!"
Post operatively, you will have bandages and dressings placed immediately after surgery. Surgical swelling is usually at its peak during the first 3 days gradually decreasing over 2-3 weeks. Keeping your arms elevated on a pillow will help reduce the expected swelling. You may feel numbness or other changes in sensation however this usually returns overtime.
Return to normal activities may take up to 2-6 weeks, depending on your particular surgical procedure.
