Candidacy for Arm Lift Surgery

Brachioplasty is suitable for individuals seeking to address loose, hanging skin on their upper arms. Candidates who are in good overall health and close to their goal weight can benefit from the procedure. The surgery can recontour the arms and eliminate excess skin that hasn't responded to exercise or diet, providing a more toned and healthy appearance.  Arm lift surgery can often be combined with other surgeries to help contour the entire upper body in patients who have lost significant weight.

Surgical Technique

The arm lift is typically performed under general anesthesia at our surgical center. Dr. Setty tailors the procedure to each patient's specific needs. The technique includes the following key steps:

Consultation and Evaluation

Dr. Setty conducts a comprehensive assessment during the initial consultation, discussing the patient’s concerns and goals. He evaluates the arms and reviews the medical history to ensure the patient is a suitable candidate for the arm lift surgery.

Marking Incision Sites

Before the procedure, Dr. Setty marks the areas on the arms where incisions will be made. This is crucial in planning and ensuring the most effective removal of excess skin.

Anesthesia Administration

To guarantee patient comfort throughout the surgery, anesthesia is administered. Dr. Setty will discuss the options and the most appropriate type for the procedure during the pre-operative appointments.

Incision and Skin Removal

Incisions are carefully made on the arms, typically in inconspicuous locations along the inside of the arm extending from the armpit to the elbow, allowing for the removal of excess skin. This step aims to achieve smoother, more contoured arms.

Tightening Supportive Tissues

Alongside skin removal, the underlying supportive tissues are tightened to provide better support and contour to the arms.

Suturing and Postoperative Care

The incisions are sutured to facilitate healing. Postoperative care instructions, including the use of compression garments and information on caring for the incisions, are given to the patient to aid in recovery.

Liposuction or BodyTite Liposuction

Often combined with body lift surgeries, liposuction targets stubborn fat deposits that can't be addressed through diet and exercise alone. It helps refine body contours by suctioning excess fat.  BodyTite allows for an easier fat removal process by heating the fatty tissue, and provides skin tightening through radio frequency.

Morpheus8 Body

Following the procedure, follow up treatments on the Morpheus8 Body device allow for continued radio frequency skin tightening and skin remodeling through microneedling to enhance results and help repair scarring.

What to Expect After Surgery

Recovery from arm lift surgery takes around two weeks. During this time, it is essential to rest and limit physical activity. Sutures are typically dissolvable, and compression garments must be worn for several weeks. Patients should avoid strenuous activities for 4 to 6 weeks post-surgery. Contact Setty Plastics & Aesthetics for any concerns regarding bleeding, swelling, or signs of infection.

Can I combine an arm lift with other surgeries?

Dr. Setty frequently combines arm lift surgery with other complementary procedures, like liposuction or a tummy tuck, to achieve comprehensive results. An arm lift can also be combined with a breast lift and bra line lift and/or reverse tummy tuck to provide an upper body lift for patients who have lost significant weight.

Will there be scars?

Although arm lift surgery involves incisions, Dr. Setty minimizes scarring by carefully placing small, thin incisions and providing guidance on scar healing. Dr. Setty likes to place the scars on the inside of your arms so they are less visible. Remember, the trade-off for these scars is more contoured and thinner arms.

What results can I expect from an arm lift?

Arm lift surgery removes loose skin and fat pockets. Results can be maintained by leading a healthy lifestyle and following proper post-surgery instructions.

Are there nonsurgical treatments to improve my arms?

While noninvasive treatments exist, a surgical arm lift is most effective for moderate to severe skin laxity.
