How Does an Arm Lift Work?

An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes the excess skin and fat deposits in the upper arms. Dr. Craig uses the utmost surgical precision and artistry to sculpt your desired contours after significant changes in weight, pregnancy, or age-related volume loss. During your consultation, Dr. Craig will speak with you about your concerns and perform an evaluation before customizing a treatment plan to meet your needs. He’ll then walk you through every aspect of the procedure from start to finish.

Am I a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?

You may be a good candidate for an arm lift procedure if you’re bothered by diet and exercise resistant fat deposits on the upper arms. Patients with loose or sagging skin on the arms are also a good fit for the procedure. Non-smokers who are in otherwise good general health typically respond the best to surgical procedures.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*

Arm lift surgery can vary significantly based on the complexity of the procedure but often takes about one to two hours to perform. The surgery is done under general anesthesia to help keep the patient comfortable throughout. In some instances, Dr. Craig may recommend that BodyTite is used alone, or in conjunction with, an arm lift to remove excess fat in the upper arms.

Once the incisions have been made Dr. Craig will gently thin fat pads and remove excess skin. The end result is tighter, more contoured arms.

What Results Will I See?*

Initial results will be visible immediately following treatment. Gradual improvement will continue to occur as post-surgical swelling and bruising dissipate. Final results from arm lift surgery can take upwards of 6-months.

“My experience was great! I was nervous and Dr Craig was very straight forward in telling me exactly what was gonna happen each step. He also has an awesome staff who is friendly and sincere in helping you.”

Is There Any Downtime?*

Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that requires a decent amount of recovery time to adequately heal. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis allowing you to go home the same day. Side effects will be at their worst 24-48 hours post-op. Pain medication is prescribed during this time to minimize discomfort. Most patients are able to return to non-strenuous activities with minimal restrictions in 7-10 days. Straining, bending, lifting, and activities that put pressure on your incisions should be avoided throughout the recovery process. Scars from the incisions will often remain pink for a few months, but they will gradually fade over time. Dr. Craig will provide each patient with an individualized post-op recovery and scar management plan based on your individual needs.
