What is a Brachioplasty?
A brachioplasty, commonly referred to as an arm lift, is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates loose, sagging skin from the upper arms, restoring their firmness. The skin on the arms can begin to sag after significant weight loss or as a natural result of aging. Either way, this produces a flabby look in the arms that many find undesirable. An arm lift can create a more contoured appearance in the arms and restore tightness to the skin.
What Can I Expect from a Brachioplasty Procedure?
A brachioplasty is performed under general anesthesia to ensure the comfort of our patients. The procedure involves a precise incision made between the elbow and the armpit, hidden on the underside of the arm. Through this incision, Dr. Afrooz can tighten the tissue and remove any excess fat in the arm. After closing the incision, the procedure is complete. An arm lift typically takes between one to three hours, depending on your current state and your desired results.
How is Recovery from a Brachioplasty?
After a brachioplasty, it is common to experience bruising and swelling in the arms, although results will already be visible. You may have to wear a compressive sleeve to help the healing process, and we recommend that patients get as much rest as possible following their procedure. This includes avoiding vigorous activity to ensure that the body can heal properly. You can expect to return to work and other normal activities within approximately one week of your procedure, and can expect a full recovery after about a month.
