Brachioplasty or Upper Arm Lift surgery is performed to improve the shape and contour of the arms. Patients with excess fat and loose skin hanging from the upper arm may select this surgery to achieve slimmer, firmer, and younger looking arms. Sometimes a sudden weight loss may result in loose hanging skin around the upper arms, and brachioplasty can help. This surgery is very popular with patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight. Scarring can be significant, depending on the type of arm lift that is performed.
Arm lift surgery may be performed as an outpatient procedure in most cases. If there is minimal excess of skin and substantial fat, a mini arm lift can be used. This involves a short incision in the arm pit which is combined with liposuction to sculpt the arms. Recovery is substantially less than with a full arm lift, where the incisions travel from the armpit to the elbow. Patients with very loose skin and minimal fat are better served with a full arm lift. When consulting in Dr.Prince’s Little Rock office, the feasibility of each procedure can be determined.
