Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) | The Natural Result

Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

Age or weight loss can cause the skin of the upper arms to sag. Brachioplasty, commonly known as arm lift surgery, removes excess skin and fatty deposits as well as tightens the underlying muscles.

What to Expect

The best candidates for arm lift surgery are men or women who are in relatively good shape and have predominantly excess skin around the upper arms. For those patients who notice extra fat or tissue in the upper arms more so than loose skin, liposuction may be suggested as an alternative. Dr. Kaufman will help you decide which procedure is best for meeting your personal appearance goals.

Arm lift surgery after weight loss is often performed in combination with other post-weight loss body contouring procedures. If you have additional problem spots besides the upper arms, you should check with Dr. Kaufman about your options.

Your Consult

During your consultation, Dr. Kaufman will ask you about your cosmetic goals and your lifestyle. Using this information, he will tailor your brachioplasty procedure to specifically suit your needs. This is a good time for you to ask any questions you may have about your surgery. You’ll also be provided with detailed instructions to follow before and after your arm lift.

Preparing for Your Arm Lift

During the brachioplasty procedure, an incision is made in the axilla, or armpit. From this incision, Dr. Kaufman will work to remove skin and fat from the upper arm. Often, liposuction may be performed at the same time, but the exact steps used during arm lift surgery will be different for each individual.

Recovery &
Results

Although your individual experience may vary, recovery from brachioplasty typically takes 7 to 10 days, with full return to activities in 4 to 6 weeks.
