Arm Lifts (brachioplasty) focuses on contouring the under arm to create a more toned, tightened and lifted arm. Throughout our lives our weight fluctuates. With large amounts of weight loss, the arms can be left with excess skin which can lead to irritation and clothes not fitting properly. This can be especially difficult for some individuals. We are here to help.

Considerations

Candidates for a arm lift typically have excess skin or fatty tissue in their tricep areas from the natural aging process, vast weight loss, or heredity. This is a condition that cannot always be corrected through exercise. The best candidates for arm lifts have good overall health.  If you are close to your ideal weight, and are not happy with the appearance of your arms then, schedule a consultation to find out if a thigh lift is right for you.

Detailed Procedural Info

Arm lifts do require general anesthesia and typically involve an incision along your arm. The location and length of the incision will vary depending on the location and amount of skin you wish to have removed.  If you are interested in hearing more about how an arm lift can improve your physique, fill out the form to the right.

What To Expect

Maintaining realistic expectations is vital for a successful thigh lift. Our expert advocates will walk through your goals, concerns, and desired outcome. Next, you’ll meet your doctor and discuss expected outcomes from your arm lift.

After the procedure, patients can expect to have minor bruising, soreness, and swelling. If a large amount of skin was removed during the procedure, an overnight stay might be necessary. With smaller surgeries pain medication and anti-inflammatories will be all that is needed. Around two week is needed to recover from an arm lift, and you will be able to resume your normal activities after four to six weeks. To maintain the results of your arm lift, be sure to watch weight gain. After your lift, your figure will be contoured to reflect the you, you’ve always wanted.
