Who Can Get an Arm Lift?

You may consider an arm lift procedure, or Brachioplasty, if you’re concerned with loose, drooping arm skin. As we age, the skin on the upper arm becomes looser due to a relaxation of fascial tissue; this effect is known as ptosis.

Patients who have undergone mastectomy or axillary lymphectomy are not candidates for arm lift surgery; nor are patients who have experienced multiple sweat gland infections.

 The Arm Lift Procedure

Brachioplasty arm reduction can reduce the upper arm circumference by removing excess tissue. The procedure also works to tighten fascia, the tissue that connects skin with underlying muscle.

Most commonly, the Brachioplasty incision extends from the elbow to the axilla (armpit), but Dr. Sadeghi will place the incision where the skin can be most effectively tightened.

The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia, or under local anesthesia plus sedation. Most patients find they’re more comfortable sleeping through the procedure.

Risks of the Arm Lift Procedure

Using advanced surgical technique, Dr. Sadeghi can minimize scarring. However, in most cases, there is a scar, which can usually be covered or camouflaged by clothing. In some patients with less tissue, the scar may be able to be hidden in the axilla.

You can find before and after pictures in our patient gallery, or browse testimonials to learn how other patients’ arm lift surgeries have gone.

 Recovering from Your Arm Lift

Your recovery will take between one and two weeks, depending on the depth of the incisions made. During this time, it’s important to follow Dr. Sadeghi’s instructions, including protecting your incisions and avoiding lifting any objects.

Elevating your arms on a pillow or two can help to alleviate discomfort. As you heal, it will take about six months to see how any scars develop.Contact us to schedule your consultation with Dr. Sadeghi.
