What is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift, often called brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce sagging skin and fat in the upper arms. Loose tissue in that area can develop as we age or as our weight fluctuates. Once there is sagging skin or excess fat under the upper arm, it can feel nearly impossible to alter with diet and exercise. The arm lift allows people suffering from “bingo wings” to get slimmer, toned upper arms permanently.

The Best Candidates for an Arm Lift

The strongest candidates for an arm lift procedure are individuals who are in good health and do not smoke. Individuals who are significantly overweight would benefit from a different procedure, but if you are at a healthy weight and struggle with your upper arms, this is the best solution for you. In some cases, the arm lift can be combined with liposuction for optimal results. If you suffer from discomfort from stretched arm skin and visible fat pockets, you are likely a strong candidate for this procedure.

The Arm Lift Procedure

The arm lift procedure is somewhat customizable to patients to remove the most skin and fat at one time. All arm lift procedures result in a reduction of fat on the upper arm, a smaller circumference to the upper arm and a smoother, toned appearance. The procedure itself typically begins with incisions on the inside of the arms, typically from the underarm to elbow. Dr. DiBernardo then removes excess skin or fat before pulling the remaining skin taut and closing the incision.

How Much Does an Arm Lift Cost?

There is no set cost for an arm lift procedure, as the surgery can vary from patient to patient. The best way to determine the cost of your arm lift is to schedule a consultation at New Jersey Plastic Surgery® today. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover®. We also offer financing options via CareCredit® and Alphaeon.

What to Expect Following an Arm Lift

After an arm lift procedure, you will feel completely recovered in less than a month. Any discomfort can be managed through prescriptions provided by our doctor. Results are visible immediately and in most cases, full results will be visible in a couple of months. Scarring will continue to lessen with time. The results of your arm lift will last for as long as you maintain the same weight.
