What Is An Arm Lift
Arm lift candidates present to our office with excess skin and fat after massive weight loss, pregnancy, or aging-related changes. Patients complain of floppy, loose skin and arms that don’t quite fit right in their sleeves. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, removes the excess fat and skin for a thinner, more toned-looking arm.
What to Expect During Your Surgery
Before surgery, you may take medications to relax. Depending on your health and risk profile, sedation or general anesthesia will be used for the duration of the surgery. Incisions will be made along the inside or back of the arm. These incisions will provide sufficient access for the removal of excess fat using liposuction techniques. Depending on how much skin will be removed, there may be minimal or extensive incisions. Sutures are typically taken out after one or two weeks.
Cost & Recovery Time
With this type of body lift surgery, it usually takes between two to three hours to complete both arms. It is recommended that you take two to three days of bed rest immediately following the procedure. Patients should not over-extend their arms until sutures are removed, so help is necessary for the first couple of weeks.
Because every surgical plan is different, costs vary from patient to patient. Financing plans are available should you choose to finance your surgery.
