Arm Lift

Arm Lift at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms, resulting in a more toned and contoured appearance. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, we specialize in arm lift procedures to help patients achieve slimmer, more proportionate arms and regain confidence in their appearance. Here’s everything you need to know about arm lifts:

What Is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that targets sagging skin and tissue in the upper arms, commonly referred to as “bat wings.” This excess skin and fat can result from aging, weight loss, or genetics and may be resistant to diet and exercise. During an arm lift, the skin and tissue are tightened and repositioned to create a smoother, more youthful arm contour.

Common Concerns Addressed by Arm Lifts

Arm lifts can address a variety of concerns, including:

  • Excess skin and fat in the upper arms
  • Sagging or drooping skin that hangs from the arms
  • Difficulty fitting into sleeves or feeling self-conscious about arm appearance

The Arm Lift Procedure

During an arm lift, incisions are typically made along the inner or back of the arms to allow for the removal of excess skin and fat. The specific techniques used will depend on the patient’s individual anatomy and goals. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia and may require an overnight hospital stay for monitoring and post-operative care.

Recovery and Results

Recovery time and outcomes vary depending on the extent of the procedure and individual healing factors. Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort following an arm lift, which can be managed with pain medication and proper post-operative care. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks, with final results becoming apparent as swelling resolves and the arms take on a more toned and contoured appearance.
