Dr. Kronowitz's approach to brachioplasty - arm lift - is unique to plastic surgery in Houston, Texas in that he does not directly cut the sagging arm skin because it results in an ugly long scar! Instead his arm lift surgery, utilizes arm liposuction because it liquefies the fat and, it tightens the loose skin on arms. Dr. Kronowitz's upper arm liposuction technique results in long-term tightening of the arm lift surgery without a visible scar. Patient's can't believe how good their arms look, and no scar! He also performs mini arm lift surgery.
Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannotbe corrected through exercise.
