Brachioplasty, otherwise known as an arm lift, is a procedure that will help to tighten and smooth the upper arm by reducing excess skin or fat. Brachioplasty is typically a good choice for those who are unable to get rid of this unwanted skin through exercise.
Candidates for Brachioplasty include those who have recently lost a large amount of weight, those who wish to tighten the naturally occurring changes of aging, and those whose arms have a naturally drooping appearance.
Brachioplasty is ideal for those who wish to reduce a flabby appearance of the arms and restore a thinner, more youthful look.
An arm lift typically takes around 2 hours and is performed as an out-patient procedure under general anesthesia.
After your surgery, your arm will be put into a compression garment to reduce swelling. Recovery time for an arm lift is typically one to two weeks. Heavy lifting and strenuous exercise must be avoided for up to six weeks.
