Other Body Procedures

Sleek, muscular upper arms and thighs convey fitness and even athleticism. Fluctuating weight or simply aging can add deposits of fat and loose skin to these areas, lending an unhealthy appearance. An arm or thigh lift in Boston by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dax Guenther will remove this excess skin and fat, tightening these areas for a firmer, more toned look.

During your private consultation, Dr. Guenther will answer your questions about improving the appearance of your upper arms and thighs. Because he has an expansive background in the finer points of plastic surgery, he has the ability to customize each procedure to the patient's specific requirements.

Advanced Techniques & Options

Dr. Guenther takes care to minimize scars resulting from arm lift surgery (also called brachioplasty), and he tailors the scar based on the amount and location of excess skin. When preparing for this procedure, he takes the time to educate his patients individually about the nature of brachioplasty scars and communicate clearly about the anticipated scar location. Scarring will generally be limited to a location inside the armpit, along the inner side of the arm or, in some cases, along the inner side of the arm and extending onto the chest wall.

Thigh lifts performed by Dr. Guenther will vary in nature with each patient. He performs medial thigh lifts for inner-thigh problem areas, resulting in scars either tucked into the groin creases or along the inner thighs. For excess skin and fat on the outer sides of the thighs, he will likely perform a lateral lift, often combined with abdominal contouring procedures. Some patients may be good candidates for CoolSculpting® treatments for the inner and outer thighs.

Both procedures generally involve skin excision. Dr. Guenther regularly combines brachioplasty and/or thigh lift surgery with additional body-contouring procedures such as liposuction.

Healing & Enjoying Your New Look

Brachioplasty and thigh lift procedures take place in the operating room as day procedures under either monitored anesthesia care or general anesthesia. Compression garments are typically worn to help with healing and producing optimal results. Incisions may take several months to complete fading, allowing you to fully enjoy your new look.
