An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that offers a way to tighten and tone the appearance of upper arms with excess loose skin. If factors like aging and weight loss have left you with noticeably saggy and wrinkled skin around your upper arms, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Glassman
can restore their appearance by providing you with excellent results from your arm lift in NYC.
ARM LIFT OVERVIEW
After substantial weight loss, weight gain or simply from the effects of aging, skin on the upper arms can become inelastic, loose and flabby. Arm lifts, also known as brachioplasty, remove that excess skin and fat. An incision is made to free the loose excess skin so that it can be excised. The remaining upper arm skin is then tightly stretched over the upper arm muscles to give the area a tighter and fitter appearance. Patients who have significant amounts of fat may want to consider combining the procedure with liposuction so that the upper arms have a sleeker, tighter, and more toned overall appearance.
ARM LIFT RECOVERY
After your arm lift surgery, you can expect to experience some swelling and bruising around the upper arms. The arms may be wrapped in compression garments to help manage any swelling that may occur and provide support. Any pain can be managed with medication. Patients will need around two to three weeks of recovery before they can resume most of their normal activities. Heavy lifting and more strenuous activity will need to be avoided for longer.
