Arm Lifts and Brachioplasty

Arm Reduction is a combination of arm fat reduction and arm skin tightening. Both weight loss and liposuction reduce the fat on the upper arms, but neither tightens loose skin. Loose arm skin is a very common problem after bariatric surgery or significant weight loss and can be a source of embarrassment and discomfort for many patients. Arm Lifts or Brachioplasty improve the appearance of the arms by removing fat and tightening excess skin. The result is a slimmer upper arm which fits much better in clothing.

Arm Lift Video (Brachioplasty)

The above Arm Lift Video is from a recent segment of my Body Beautiful television show. The show airs on the San Francisco Bay Area’s News Station, KRON 4. The techniques for Brachioplasty, including scar placement and recovery are reviewed, and many examples of the procedure are illustrated with Arm Lift Before and After Photos.

What Does An Arm Lift Do?

Arm lifts allow for the reduction and tightening of the upper arm, and restore the normal arm proportions after weight loss.

Arm Lifts remove excess skin from the upper arm. The larger the amount of skin, the more dramatic and satisfying the result. The procedure is normally performed under anesthesia, and leaves a scar in the inner part of the arm. A special arm compression garment is worn for several weeks after the procedure to help ensure the best possible result.

Arm Lift Consultations

Arm Lifts are for people who have excessive upper arm skin and who are bothered when their arm does not stop waving when they do.
