Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
You can go sleeveless and sexy.
How can an Arm Lift enhance your life
From the beach to the boardroom, sculpted arms are the ultimate fashion accessory. You deserve to love your arms – and excess skin is one of the most common factors holding women back from embracing their arms. With our talented and meticulous surgeons, arms you’ll love to show off are within reach, and closer than ever.
Losing weight and getting older can be a difficult task. Our surgeons can perform brachioplasty and upper arm lifting if you have problems tightening your arm muscles through exercise. The problem of excess skin running from the elbow to your upper arm is quite common, especially in those who have recently lost significant weight. Arm lift surgery is performed to remove loose skin.
Is is right for You
Are you a good candidate for an Arm Lift
You may be a good candidate for an Arm Lift if you:
- Avoid sleeveless clothes
- Are embarrassed for excess arm skin and fat
For this procedure to be successful, you need to be in good overall health. This will allow your skin and tissues to heal properly during recovery. Arm lift surgery might be right for you if you are experiencing loose or hanging skin in your upper arms. Before you undergo the procedure, it is important that you are close to a healthy weight.
What can you expect on Arm Lift
Procedure & Recovery
You should expect to be fully recovered in two weeks. This will include lots of rest, arm elevation, and plenty of arm elevation. You should allow your body to heal properly after your procedure. Your arms are used for nearly all activities, so we encourage patients back to their routines.
We will schedule another appointment to follow-up with you after approximately ten more days. Your surgeon will also provide you with detailed instructions for aftercare to help you get back to your regular activities. You will need to refrain from strenuous activity for at most 4 to 5 weeks. However, you can take short walks. You should call us immediately if there is excessive swelling, fluid buildup or signs of infection.
All You Need to Know About Arm Lift
Arm lift surgery is also known as brachioplasty. In this cosmetic procedure, fat and excess skin is removed from the underside of your upper arm to give it a more contoured and toned appearance.
As the name suggests, a mini arm lift removes a minimal amount of skin and fat in the arm region, usually the axilla (arm pit). The scar is less visible as it is hidden in the underarm area.
Arm lifts or brachioplasty is an excellent option to eliminate the look and feel of saggy arms.
Generally, arm lifts last in the long-term. However, it is important to note that with age and weight fluctuations loss of firmness and sagginess can recur.
Brachioplasty is a safe surgery, but as with any surgeries, your doctor will discuss your overall health, risks, and benefits of the procedure during your initial consultation.
After surgery, you may experience some pain or discomfort for a few days as well as swelling and bruising.
The initial discomfort after surgery will dissipate within a few days. However, general soreness will likely take about 1-2 weeks to disappear and for your arms to heal.
The sutures or stitches that are used to close the incisions when brachioplasty is performed are usually resorbed by your body within 2 weeks. If non-resorbable sutures are used, your doctor will remove them in 1-2 weeks post-surgery.
Arm lifts have a good track record. They are common cosmetic procedures.
The results after an arm lift are visible immediately after the procedure. However, as the swelling subsides over the following 6 weeks, there will be improvements in the area while the skin on the arms tightens over time.
Your surgeon will give you full instructions on how to sleep and what to do after surgery. However, usually, it is recommended that you sleep on your back with your elbows slightly bent and elevated with some pillows.
This will be outlined in your post-operative instructions. Usually, it is better to limit your arm movement right after surgery and for the few days following surgery to allow for proper healing of the incision.
Do you lose weight after brachioplasty?
The price of an arm lift will vary from person to person and surgeon to surgeon. Usually, the price is about $10,000-11,000.
The cost of a mini arm lift is in the range of $7000-8000.
Brachioplasty procedures usually take approximately 1-2 hours.
You can resume work usually within 1-2 weeks depending on how physically demanding your job is. If it involves a lot of heavy lifting or physical work, it will be closer to 2 weeks.
