Have you lost a lot of weight and now have extra skin or have noticed your skin losing elasticity as you age? Skin laxity from the elbow to the upper arm is common in older people and also following weight loss. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, upper arm lift surgery (also called brachioplasty) is an option for people who want to tighten and tone their arms. With arm lift surgery, Dr. Husam Elias removes unwanted fat tissue and skin, also known as "bat wings." To hear more about how brachioplasty could help you obtain arms that look younger and more toned, please call us to book an appointment at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts.

Prior to any plastic surgery procedure, you will have a consultation at our Los Angeles, CA office. During this time, you can discuss your goals with Dr. Elias so he can create a personalized treatment plan and determine the appropriate surgical technique according to your needs. Arm lift surgery is performed while you are asleep under general anesthesia. An incision is made on the underside of the arm, typically followed by liposuction to remove fat from between the armpit and elbow. The excess skin will then be trimmed away, and the remaining skin is tightened and secured with sutures. After arm lift surgery, it's important to maintain a healthy weight to maintain long-lasting results.

I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.

I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
