What is an Arm Lift?
Also commonly referred to as a brachioplasty, an arm lift can help men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight but who still have areas of sagging or loose skin that do not respond to exercise. This procedure removes excess skin and, in some cases, pockets of fat to create a tighter, more toned appearance and help you fully achieve better body contours.
How is an Arm Lift Performed?
For men and women who qualify, a customized surgical plan will be created to help you prepare for your procedure and know what to expect during the process. Dr. Sands will also discuss the incision patterns that will be used to perform your procedure. Although some surgical scarring will be necessary, Dr. Sands will carefully plan and place all incisions to keep your results as natural-looking as possible.
The extent of your procedure depends on the level of correction necessary and where liposuction will also be used to remove pockets of excess fat.
Am I a Good Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery?
Men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight and who have sagging skin on the arms may be candidates for this procedure. This is not a weight loss alternative, and individuals who have medical contraindications may require further evaluation before surgery is approved.
What is the Recovery after Arm Lift Surgery?
Recovery may vary from patient to patient as everyone’s healing process is different, but Dr. Sands and our medical team will let you know how much time you should take off from work and when you can expect to return to normal activities after your procedure. You will also be provided with any necessary aftercare instructions for your incisions to reduce the risk of infection.
