Arm Lift

Are you bothered by excess skin on your upper arms that you just can’t seem to remove with diet and exercise? If so, you may be a good candidate for brachioplasty (arm lift) surgery.

OVERVIEW   Procedure    Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that is used to help remove the excess skin and fatty tissue from the axilla and upper arm. Brachioplasty is not a surgical treatment for being overweight.
Benefits  Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward.Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
Recovery Time  Sutures are usually removed between 3 weeks after surgery. Lifting restriction of 5 pounds for 3 weeks after surgery.  Sometime around the 8th week after surgery you will be allowed to resume all activities. Scars will flatten and fade between 3 months and 2 years after surgery.
Post-Op Considerations   A compression garment is worn up to 6 weeks after surgery. You may also have drains that you will have to manage for up to a week after surgery
Tips  Plan to not lift arms higher than shoulder height for the first 1-2 weeks to facilitate proper healing. 

Brachioplasty (arm lift) is a procedure used to treat sagging skin in the upper arms. This skin is oftentimes, but not always, the result of weight loss. The arm lift procedure involves an incision from the underarm area extending along the inside of the upper arm. The smoother, tighter appearance that results from upper arm contouring is apparent almost immediately, but is almost always obscured initially by swelling and bruising. However, most of this dissipates by about 6 weeks after surgery. In addition, skin quality is usually dramatically improved in both appearance and texture.

After the procedure you will wear compression sleeves for up to 6 weeks to help push the swelling from the area and to provide support to the operative sites while they are healing.
