Short Armpit Scar Inner Arm Lift at Orange County Plastic Surgery by Dr. Bunkis*

Procedure Details

This 60 year old female wished to have her inner arm tightened but did not wish to have a scar down the inner arm that results with a traditional brachioplasty. She sought consultation with Dr. Juris Bunkis of Orange County Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA. The options were reviewed and Dr. Bunkis explained a traditional brachioplasty but she again reiterated that she did not wish a scar from her armpit to her elbow. A partial improvement via a transverse incision in the armpit and showed her, by pinching her skin, that an armpit approach could tighten the skin longitudinally but not vertically along the inner arm. Dr. Bunkis agreed to perform a limited inner arm lift with a transverse incision limited to the armpit, giving her this limited improvement, without a visible scar, that she was pleased with.
