Arm Lift (Brachioplasty): Is it Right for You?

posted in: Arms | 0

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin, tightens and smooths underlying tissue, and reduces areas of fat in the upper arm. Over time your upper arms may develop a drooping appearance due to fluctuations in weight, aging, and heredity. Typically, this is an area that is unaffected by diet or exercise.

Are you a candidate for an arm lift? An arm lift could be right for you if you upper arms are sagging or have excess skin and fat. Candidates should have a relatively stable weight and not be significantly overweight. Candidates should be in good health and non-smokers.

What happens during the procedure? In general, incisions are made on the inside of the arm or the back of the arm. The length will depend on amount and location of excess skin to be removed. Fat may be removed directly or with the assistance of liposuction. Results will be immediately noticeable but there may be some bruising and swelling after the surgery.

The results of an arm lift surgery are long lasting but depend on maintaining a stable weight. As you continue to age, your body will still lose firmness but results are relatively permanent. Your scar will fade over time.
