New York Arm Lift

An “arm lift,” also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to reshape and tighten the upper arms. It is typically sought by individuals who have excess skin and fat in the upper arm area, often as a result of aging, significant weight loss, or genetics. This procedure can help improve the contour and appearance of the arms, making them look more toned and youthful.

During an arm lift procedure, the surgeon makes an incision on the inner or back of the upper arm, depending on the extent of correction needed. Excess skin and fat are then removed, and the remaining skin is carefully pulled and tightened. In some cases, liposuction may be used to remove excess fat before the skin is re-draped.

After the surgery, patients may need to wear compression garments to minimize swelling and support the healing process. Recovery time can vary but often takes several weeks, and patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities during this period.

It’s important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine whether an arm lift is the right procedure for your specific needs and to discuss the potential risks and benefits. Like all surgical procedures, there are associated risks, including scarring, infection, and anesthesia-related complications, which should be considered before proceeding.
