Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
As people grow older or have fluctuations in their weight, it is not uncommon for them to develop a sagging or “bat-wing” appearance in their upper arms due to hanging skin. Excess fat in the upper arms can be very difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise, and excess skin is even harder to eliminate. As medical knowledge and technology advances, arm lift surgery (also called “brachioplasty”) has become increasingly popular.
Reasons people elect to undergo brachioplasty or arm lift surgery include:
- Reduction of sagging skin
- Reshaping of the upper arm
- A combination of skin and fat reduction
During your initial consultation, we will go over all your options and explain every phase of the process to help you decide on the best course of action and establish realistic expectations.
A brachioplasty is performed on an outpatient basis and can take as few as two hours to complete.
A full recovery usually takes between one to two weeks. An arm lift usually leaves a scar along the inside of the arm that fades after six months, but people with moderate amounts of loose skin can elect to undergo a minimal incision brachioplasty in which the scar is hidden in the armpit.
