Arms and Legs

Dr. Reetesh Purwar understands the needs and dreams of those who would like to be free from not only the fat deposits that settle around the arms and thighs, but also the loose, excess skin that surrounds them. That understanding allows him to offer superior thigh and arm lift (brachioplasty) treatments to his clients throughout the entire nation. Please take a moment to read about how the innovative techniques Dr. Purwar has developed at the Cosmetic Make Over, including the minimal incision arm lift, have revolutionized the field of arm lift surgery.

Minimal Incision Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

A brachioplasty, commonly called an arm lift, is a surgical procedure to reshape and provide improved contour to the upper arms and connecting area of chest wall.While “brachioplasty” is commonly used to describe a specific procedure for the upper arms, the term can also be used to describe any surgical arm contouring. Brachioplasty is often used to address issues such as excessive loose skin or excessive fat in the arms when it does not respond well to diet and exercise.

The fantastic results that Dr. Purwar achieves with his arm lift techniques attract patients from all over the country. Prior to his work, which was documented as a lead article of the August/September 2001 Aesthetic Surgery Journal, arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) was accomplished by removing excess skin along a lengthy incision all the way from the armpit to the elbow along the length of the arm. Like the full breast lift, this procedure resulted in significant scarring, even when fully healed. Dr. Purwar, though, has perfected a method in which a much smaller incision is made at the armpit. The excess skin is then pulled up, similar to pulling on panty hose, and removed. After the cut has been sewn up, the remaining skin is tight, smooth, and as young-looking as ever. This innovative minimal incision arm lift technique largely eliminates the flab vs. scarring tradeoff, and has delighted patients from across the nation who want to experience the benefits of an arm lift without the usual drawbacks.

Thigh Lift

Thigh Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten the skin of the thigh and reduce sagging in the inner or outer thighs. The procedure is commonly performed on patients with massive weight loss, but it is also performed on people who have not experienced weight loss. There are two types of thigh lifts:

  • Inner Thigh Lift (aka medial thigh lift)
  • Outer Thigh Lift

Patients who have the Body Lift procedure will have the Outer Thigh Lift performed as part of the procedure. However, the Inner Thigh Lift procedure is commonly performed as a single procedure. Patients who have a Body Lift will often have the Inner Thigh Lift performed as the second step of their total body transformation.

Additionally, the Outer Thigh Lift can be performed with the Tummy Tuck procedure. This combination of Outer Thigh Lift plus Tummy Tuck is called the Extended Tummy Tuck.

What problems does a Thigh lift address?

  • Poor skin elasticity on inner/outer thighs
  • Dramatic weight loss resulting in excess skin on thighs
  • Sagging, hanging skin on inner or outer thighs

Dr. Purwar offers his years of experience to help those who come to him make informed decisions about how extensive a surgery to seek.

As with any other cosmetic surgery procedure, prospective thigh lift patients should plan to take some time off from work and daily routine. Manageable discomfort, bruising, and swelling are to be expected, but should not detract from the wonderful results available for those who choose this surgery and the other treatments that often complement it, such as cheek lift and chin liposuction.


Some of the possible complications associated with brachioplasty include:-

  • Risks of anaesthesia, including allergic reaction
  • Surgical risks such as bleeding or infection
  • Blood clots that may cause potentially fatal cardiovascular complications, such as heart attack, deep vein thrombosis or stroke
  • Collapsed lung
  • Fluid build-up under the wound
  • Tissue death along the wound, or skin loss
  • Sensory nerve damage, which may cause prolonged or permanent numbness in the upper arm or even in the forearm
  • Prolonged swelling
  • Damage to underlying tissues such as muscles
  • Asymmetry (unevenness) of the skin
  • Unsightly, inflamed or itchy scarring
  • Further surgery to treat complications.
