An arm lift will reshape the underside of your upper arm.
Your arm skin may sag as you grow older, if you’ve lost a lot of weight, or you may have a genetic predisposition to store fat in the upper arm area. Board certified plastic surgeons such as Dr. Bauer and Dr. Talbert at Arkansas Plastic Surgery use brachioplasty to tighten loose skin under your arms.
Your brachioplasty goals will be discussed with your surgeon. Together you will decide the best approach to achieve your desired results.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, procedure will reshape the underside of your upper arm. Your arm lift procedure will be performed under general anesthesia for your safety and comfort. Your surgeon will make an incision from your under arm to the elbow. He will reduce or remove saggy, excess skin, tighten the tissue that defines your arm shape, and reduce localized fat pockets in your upper arm. Though our surgeons minimize scarring as much as possible, some scarring is unavoidable. These scars will improve and fade over time.
Following your surgery, you will have dressings and bandages over your incisions. Your arms may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling.
