Lovely arms can be yours.

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a procedure that can tighten the skin and remove excess fat in your upper arms. If you have saggy upper arms, an upper arm lift is a surgical procedure to leave them tighter and slimmer, creating a more youthful appearance. Wear sleeveless tops, swimsuits, and other revealing clothing with total confidence!

Upper arm liposuction

Liposuction and fat contouring can give a slimmer, more youthful appearance to your arms. Patients who do not have excess skin, but have some areas of excess fat, are excellent candidates for upper arm liposuction. The procedure uses small incisions, and the results are very rewarding.

The arm lift procedure

An arm lift (brachioplasty) removes excess skin and fat in the upper arms. Brachioplasty is typically performed in one of two ways.  A standard brachioplasty is an approach where the scar is placed from the inner part of the elbow along the bicipital groove and ends at the armpit.  The advantage of placing the scar in this location is that with your arm at your side, even with a sleeveless shirt the scar is hidden.

L-brachioplasty is a technique most often used in patients who have lost a significant amount of weight. The scar in an L-brachioplasty is the same as the standard brachioplasty plus it extends into the axilla.  This allows for not only removing all the hair bearing skin of the axilla so you should not have to shave anymore, but also it helps to tighten loose upper back/axillary tissue that can spill out over a bra strap.  The procedure can also be combined with an upper body lift or breast lift to maximize your aesthetic results. Depending on your body type and requirements, our doctors will discuss your options with you to help you decide which procedure best suits your desires.

Preparing for your arm lift

Who is a candidate for an arm lift/brachioplasty? 

Men and women who wish to improve the shape and contour of their upper arms are candidates. Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, such as those who have undergone bariatric surgery, are also excellent candidates.

How do I prepare for my arm lift? 

We ask patients to stop taking medications that may increase bleeding, such as aspirin, Plavix, NSAIDS, and herbal supplements. Patients should be in good health and have their blood pressure under control. Maintaining a healthy diet and avoiding all nicotine products are essential for the healing process and ensuring the best results from your arm lift surgery. Nutritional supplementation is also an important part of the healing process. We encourage all of our patients to begin protein shakes or juices three to four weeks before and after surgery.

Recovery from an arm lift

Our surgical team is trained to help facilitate a rapid recovery. The procedure is under general anesthesia, and patients are instructed to wear compression garments for the first few weeks. As you heal, it is important to stay well-hydrated and nourished.
