Just what is an arm lift?

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery treatment that addresses the upper arms.

The purpose of this treatment is to reshape, lift and tighten the upper arm area. Many times, with age, weight loss or simply genetics, the area of the arm that stretches from the elbow to the underarm can become saggy or droopy, with excess skin and/or fat. And, oftentimes, this area is resistant to exercise.

An arm lift corrects this by surgically removing excess skin while also tightening the tissue that supports and shapes the upper arms. This is a customized treatment that can also reduce fat in this area.

Generally, an arm lift is a fairly quick outpatient procedure that is done using general anesthesia. It involves making incisions to remove the extra skin. If necessary, liposuction can be used to remove excess fat, as well. However, sagging skin alone does not respond to liposuction.

Most patients can go home about an hour after the treatment and will need to come back in several weeks for a follow up appointment.

Who is a candidate for an arm lift?

Not everyone is an ideal candidate for an arm lift. If you are not in good health, are a smoker or extremely overweight, you are not a suitable candidate for this treatment.

However, if you are in good health and don’t smoke, an arm lift could benefit you. The best way to learn whether an arm lift is right for you is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Andrew to discuss your health, cosmetic goals and options.
