Arm Lift FAQ’s

  • Who is a good candidate for an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)? Anyone with a large amount of excess skin is candidate for an arm lift. The more excess skin, the more dramatic the improvement. If you have lost weight, and the fat has left the arms, but stretched out upper arm skin remains, Brachioplasty can reveal your hard work by removing the redundant, loose skin. Good health is also a must for any elective plastic surgery.
  • What is the recovery after a Brachioplasty? You can go home the same day as your Arm Lift. Light compression sleeves are worn for several weeks afterward for support and to minimize swelling. It takes a few weeks before full activity is permitted. Scar care is instituted after surgery and is maintained until the scar is fully mature.
  • What are the alternatives to an Arm Lift? Unfortunately, for very loose skin there is not substitute for Brachioplasty. Despite the promises you will find on-line, there is no dependable way to shrink the skin without surgery. However, if your upper arms are full due to disproportionate fat, and the skin retains good tone, Liposuction can offer excellent improvement without a Brachioplasty scar.
