What is Brachioplasty?

As you grow older, the gradual loss of elasticity can make the skin under your arms sag and droop downwards. You may also notice sagging skin underneath your upper arms after undergoing sudden weight loss. There’s no way to improve sagging skin through exercise and dietary changes, but an arm lift surgery can reverse the signs of aging. Brand Surgical Institute performs a highly personalized brachioplasty to make your arms look youthful.

How does brachioplasty work?

Brachioplasty, also known as arm lift surgery, is a highly personalized surgical procedure for patients with excess skin tissues under the upper arms. This procedure involves making an incision under the arms to trim away excess skin tissues and fat deposits between the underarm and elbow. Once the excess skin is removed, your upper arms look firm, contoured, and youthful. This procedure reverses the effects of age and sudden weight loss on your arms.

You are the ideal candidate for brachioplasty if:

  • You want to remove the loose and sagging skin under your arms
  • You want to reverse the signs of aging and weight loss from your arms
  • You are close to your ideal body weight
  • You have good physical health
  • You have realistic expectations from the procedure
  • You are a nonsmoker or willing to stop smoking before or after the procedure

What happens during brachioplasty?

Brand Surgical Institute performs a highly personalized arm lift surgery after a thorough evaluation. During your consultation, the surgeon examines your arms, discusses your goals and expectations, and reviews your medical history. If you’re deemed a good candidate for the procedure, the surgeon marks the regions with excess skin tissues and determines if you need liposuction with your brachioplasty.

The brachioplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia at our accredited surgical facility. The surgeon makes an incision along the inner arm, from the elbow to the underarm. If you have excess fat deposits, the surgeon may insert a hollow cannula to suction away the excess fat cells from the region. The surgeon also trims away excess skin tissues from the underarm region, following which the incisions are sutured closed.

What is recovery like after brachioplasty?

You may experience swelling, bruising, and mild discoloration around the incision site for a few days. You must keep your arms elevated to minimize swelling and improve blood circulation. The incision scar will gradually dissipate, but you should realize that scarring is a part of this procedure. You can resume most of your daily activities and work after a week or two, but you can expect your arms to feel weak for a few weeks.
