Arm Lift in Miami, FL

Are you worried about the appearance of your upper arms?

Many men and women are self-conscious about the way their arms look. Whether it be age, significant weight loss, pregnancy, or genetics, many people have loose and flabby skin on the underside of their upper arms (which is sometimes referred to as “bat wings”).

Arm lift surgery (also known as brachioplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that helps correct the appearance of the upper arm. This is achieved by removing some of the loose skin between the armpit and elbow and then repositioning the remaining skin over the tightened tissues in the arm.

Am I a Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery?

If you are frustrated with loose and sagging skin on the underside of your upper arms, then an arm lift is the procedure for you. Candidates should be non-smoking individuals in good general health and have realistic expectations for their results.

During your consultation, your cosmetic surgeon will conduct an in-depth evaluation to determine your candidacy. This is a valuable opportunity for you to express your desires for the surgery as well as for your surgeon to develop a treatment plan that best suits you.

Arm Lift Benefits

Contoured Upper Arms | Youthful Appearance | Increased Confidence

How Is Arm Lift Surgery Performed?

Local anesthesia is generally used during the procedure. However, general anesthesia may be used in some situations, especially if the arm lift is combined with another surgery.

During the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will make incisions on the underside of your upper arms. The length of the incisions is dependent on the extent of the correction needed, including how much skin will be removed.

The placement of these incisions on the underside of the arms limits the appearance of arm lift scars.

After the incisions are made, excess skin will be cut away, and the underlying tissues will be tightened and secured with internal sutures. In certain situations, liposuction may be used to remove any stubborn fat in the area. Once the tissue is tightened and the fat removed, the incisions will be closed, and you will be ready to start your recovery.

It generally takes three to four hours for arm lift surgery to be completed.

What Procedures Can Be Combined With My Arm Lift?

There are many benefits that come with combining procedures, including more dynamic results and less overall cost and recovery time. Some procedures that patients tend to combine with their arm lift are:

Breast procedures, including augmentation, lift, or reduction

Tummy tuck surgery

Brazilian Butt Lift procedure

Liposuction (on other parts of the body)

What Is Arm Lift Recovery Like?

It can take up to six weeks for the swelling and bruising to subside after your arm lift surgery. During that time, you will wear compression sleeves to speed up your recovery. Medication can alleviate any pain that you may feel after your procedure. During your recovery, you will want to make sure that you do not engage in any strenuous activities or lift anything of weight.

What Results Can I Expect From the Procedure?

Once the swelling dissipates, you will have more contoured upper arms. While it may take several months for your final results to be evident, once this happens, you will look younger, which will give you the confidence you need to enjoy the summer in short sleeves and tank-tops.

Arm lift results are long lasting. Keeping a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and consistent exercise routine, will help prolong your results. It is important to understand that arm lift surgery will not prevent the natural effects of aging. However, this procedure can give you the toned look you’ve wanted for your arms.
