Arm Lift Surgery
Arm lift surgery, or brachioplasty, allows plastic surgeons to reshape and sculpt the underside of the upper arm, from the armpit to the elbow. This type of plastic surgery targets drooping or sagging skin under the arm that is often result age or weight loss.
During arm lift surgery, a plastic surgeon will remove excess tissue using an incision on the inside of the back of the arm. Once excess skin is removed, the remaining skin is tightened and stitched into a new position. Brachioplasty procedures are sometimes combined with liposuction allowing plastic surgeons to remove unwanted fat deposits helping to achieve a the best result possible.
The Benefits of arm lift surgery (i.e., a more shapely and youthful looking upper arm) are noticeable almost immediately after the procedure. Most people can return to work 2-3 weeks after their brachioplasty. Restrictions regarding lifting heavy objects continue for approximately 2-6 weeks after an arm lift.
