Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Who is a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?

  • Patients with loose or sagging upper arm skin secondary to aging or excessive weight loss.
  • Patients who have full and shapeless upper arms.
  • Patients who are unable to tighten the excess arm skin and loose muscle with exercise.

The Procedure

  • The procedure is usually performed at our surgery center under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting.
  • The arm lift usually consists of lifting of the skin of the upper arm with an incision on the inside aspect of the arm.
  • Liposuction is used as well to help reduce the overall thickness of the upper arm.
  • At times, only liposuction is needed to shape the upper arm.

The Recovery After an Arm Lift

  • After an upper arm lift, one may need help for proper assistance at home for 1-2 days.
  • You will be encouraged to move and walk regularly within 1-2 days.
  • Light activity is comfortable in 2 weeks. Sports will not be comfortable for about 3 weeks.

The Result From an Arm Lift

  • A smoother and more attractive appearance to the upper arm.
  • More confident and comfortable in clothing, especially dresses, swim suits and tank tops.
  • Lasts the rest of your life and always looks better than if you do not have surgery. If there is continued sagging or weight loss, then a second touch up procedure can help.
  • Natural and presentable appearance in the first 2 weeks that continues to improve over the next 3 – 6 months.
