Arm Lift


Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift in Atlanta can re-contour excess arm skin for firmer, natural-looking results! Loose, sagging skin of your upper arms is one of the most noticeable signs of aging. Regardless of how much you diet or exercise, these healthy habits cannot address lax skin. If you are bothered by drooping skin around the arms, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team may recommend a brachioplasty. Astra Plastic Surgery offers brachioplasty to rejuvenate the arms.

What Is An Arm Lift?

Firm, well-defined arms can be symbolic of strength and youth. Over time, the soft tissue in the arm becomes lax and creates an unflattering appearance that no amount of exercise can improve. Genetics, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process can all contribute to sagging arms.

Many people hide their arms because they are embarrassed by the hanging skin and fat. An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that can remove excess skin and fat deposits while addressing weakened tissues. This procedure can reshape the underlying portion of the upper arm from the armpit area to the elbow. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we perform brachioplasty in Atlanta for patients who want to enhance and re-contour their arms for a more sculpted and toned appearance.

What Are The Benefits Of An Arm Lift?

Arm lift surgery in Atlanta can remove excess skin, tighten the underlying supportive tissue, and reduce fat on the upper arms. Brachioplasty is beneficial for patients who struggle with excess skin and fat on the upper arms due to weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics. Often, patients who struggle with sagging skin or tissue on the arms experience rashes that can sometimes lead to infection. Sagging skin on the arms cannot be corrected with diet and exercise, making arm lift surgery a long-lasting solution.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Arm Lift Surgery?

The best way to determine if brachioplasty is right for you is to schedule a consultation at Astra Plastic Surgery. During your consultation our plastic surgeon will discuss your lifestyle, general health, and overall procedure goals.

We will examine your arms and record detailed measurements before taking photographs for your before and after pictures that will become a part of your medical record. You will be given pre and post-surgery instructions to follow to ensure optimal results.

It is natural for your body to lose some firmness in the arms as you age. As a result, many Atlanta brachioplasty patients turn to exercise to restore youthful arm contours. Although exercise can tone muscles, it cannot tighten your skin. If the undersides of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose due to excess skin, an arm lift may be right for you.

What Can I Expect During Arm Lift Surgery?

An arm lift is typically an outpatient procedure that takes 1 to 2 hours to perform, depending on the extent of your surgery. Your brachioplasty procedure may take longer if you are having additional procedures performed at the same time.

Once you are comfortably anesthetized, your surgeon will make incisions on the inside or back of your arm that may span from the underarm to just above the elbow; this is based on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed. For people who have lost a significant amount of weight, the incision may need to run from the elbow, along the armpit, and onto the side of the chest to successfully eliminate the desired amount of redundant skin.

For patients with only a small amount of excess skin, a minimal incision arm lift procedure may be performed in which a few small incisions are made near the underarm area. Your arm lift surgeon will remove the fat deposits before trimming and tightening the excess skin. Then, your surgeon will close your incisions(s) with sutures that, in most cases, will be absorbed by the body within 1 to 2 weeks.

What Can I Expect After Arm Lift Surgery?

Following surgery, patients who live a healthy lifestyle prior to their surgery often experience a quicker and easier recovery period. Soreness, bruising, and swelling are some of the most common symptoms following arm lift surgery. Patients can expect their arms to be bandaged and wrapped following their procedure, limiting range of motion. It is recommended that arrangements are made for post-operative care.

In some cases, patients may need to return to the office to have any stitches or drains removed. Although placed in inconspicuous areas, scars are inevitable after arm lift surgery. Patients can expect their scars to lighten over time. A variety of cosmetic treatments are available to further aid in camouflaging scars.

What Results Can I Expect From Arm Lift Surgery?

The results of arm lift surgery can be long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and a proper fitness routine. In some cases, prior to brachioplasty, liposuction may be used to eliminate excess fat before the surgery is performed. Many patients choose to have other body sculpting procedures performed at the same time as their arm lift, including a tummy tuck or thigh lift.

How Much Does A Brachioplasty In Atlanta Cost?

At Astra Plastic Surgery, we tailor arm lift surgery to the unique needs of each patient, so the cost varies. Some patients may need only minor corrections while others may need more extensive arm lift surgery. We advise you as to the cost of your procedure after your personal consultation, and you may pay by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
