Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
Arm Lift-San Jose
This patient is in her upper 40s, and came to see Dr. Lepore to improve the appearance of her arms. She has lived with type 1 diabetes, and has had an insulin pump inside her upper arm. Years ago, the pump lead to fat necrosis, and a deformity in her arm. She had arm lift surgery (with another physician) to repair that damage, nearly 20 years ago.
With the passage of time, she was bothered by noticeable sagging along the scar lines on both arms. To restore the shape and firmer appearance to her arms, Dr. Lepore performed a full, longitudinal Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) on both arms.
She is very pleased with the improvement achieved through her surgery. She continues the recommended care, and treatment to further reduce the appearance of her scars.
