Current Trends in Arm Lift Surgery
Date:5/2/2008

SAN DIEGO, May 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Innovations in Brachioplasty (arm lift) techniques will be discussed by leading experts at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) being held at the San Diego Convention Center May 2-6, 2008.

"Rejuvenation of the Arm: A Treatment Algorithm" will be moderated by Daniel Morello, MD, and will include Peter Fodor, MD, who will discuss traditional Brachioplasty; Felmont Eaves, MD, who will discuss the procedure in the massive weight loss patient; and Lawrence Reed, MD, who will discuss minimal incision Brachioplasty.

Excess fat and sagging, hanging skin on the upper arms is a common and distressing cosmetic issue for many women, one that may be caused by aging, genetics, and/or weight loss. To correct this, many patients will undergo Brachioplasty, or arm lift procedures. According to recent data from ASAPS, in 2007 there were 21,870 Brachioplasty procedures performed, an increase of 769% since 1997.

"When liposuction first became popular about ten years ago, we saw a decrease in the number of Brachioplasty procedures being performed," said Dr. Morello, a board-certified plastic surgeon in White Plains, NY who is a past-president of the Aesthetic Society. "Now, liposuction is usually one part of the procedure."

"The key to getting a good result is custom tailoring the patient's needs to the procedure. Some patients with firm skin, including those who simply want a more muscular arm, might only need liposuction, a good option because there is not much of a scar. On the other end of the spectrum some patients with a lot of hanging skin will require traditional Brachioplasty. The goal of this panel is to cover the surgical approaches that can currently be offered to the entire spectrum of patients." added Dr. Fodor, past-president of the Society and a board-certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, CA.
