An arm lift (brachioplasty) is a surgical body-contouring procedure that can help you wave goodbye to flabby upper arms—and say hello to firmer, more contoured arms and the increased confidence you need to wear all your favorite sleeveless shirts and dresses. An arm lift procedure treats sagging skin and loose tissue on the upper arm by removing the excess skin and tightening the remaining tissue.
This procedure may be the solution for you if you are not significantly overweight, but have a significant amount of excess skin on your upper arms—most likely the result of drastic weight loss or aging.
You’ve probably found this excess skin completely resistant to exercise, preventing you from achieving the toned arms you desire.
What to Expect
An arm lift is generally performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia.
During an arm lift, your plastic surgeon makes an incision the length of your upper arms, removes the excess skin, and pulls the remaining tissue taut.
An arm lift procedure generally takes about four hours, and you can return home after surgery.
You may experience some minor post-operative discomfort and swelling.
The bandage will be left on the sutures for several days, and most patients typically can return to work after a week of recovery.
People have reported the following benefits:
- Firmer, tighter skin
- More defined and smaller upper arms
- Enhanced confidence in appearance, especially when wearing sleeveless clothing
- Long-lasting results
