What Is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the upper arms. Many lifestyle factors or changes can make an impact on the appearance of your arms. Weight loss or the natural aging process can cause skin to sag, and the arms can often be home to stubborn areas of fat.
The goal of an arm lift is to:
- Contour and create a smoother, slimmer shape
- Enhance definition and shape
- Reduce unwanted stubborn fat
- Remove excess skin
- Tightening tissues
An arm lift may not be the best choice if you are looking to correct an asymmetrical appearance of your arms. While this is not intended to be a weight loss style procedure, it may be a good option for you if you have been unsuccessful in achieving the toned look you want. Explore the options during a consultation with our team in the San Diego area.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
An arm lift is a surgical procedure that begins with incisions being made in the arm. Location of the incisions will vary for each person and their surgical goals. Excess fat and skin is removed from the underarm portion of the upper arms, and skin is used to recontour the shape of the arm.
You should be able to see the results of your arm lift shortly after your procedure. However, experience some minor bruising or swelling following the surgery.
Results will vary for each person, but they are intended to be permanent. However, continuing to lead a healthy lifestyle is important for working to maintain your results, and skin does naturally lose its firmness over time.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most people who are frustrated with the appearance of loose, sagging skin or pesky fat on their arms could benefit from this procedure. It is important to remember an arm lift is not a weight loss or reduction procedure of any kind, but is rather intended to contour and reshape stubborn areas. A consultation with our team in the San Diego area can help ensure this surgical procedure is the right fit for you and your goals.
