The upper arms tend to accumulate excess fat and redundant skin over time, creating “bat wings” that are especially apparent with the arms raised. Arm lift surgery, or Brachioplasty, may be an option for you if your arms seem flabby or the skin is saggy or dimpled. Liposuction can be a good alternative if the skin is relatively tight and fat removal is the primary goal.
If the appearance of your arms improves when you pinch the extra skin and fat tighter, you may choose to have a Brachioplasty to restore a youthful contour with long-lasting results. After your personal consultation with Dr. Donaldson or Dr. Sieffert, you will understand which techniques may best suit your unique needs.
Dr. Donaldson performs arm lift as same-day surgery under general anesthesia. He places the incisions more toward the back of the arm or more toward the inside according to your activities, clothing habits and personal preferences. The arm lift is performed through short incisions that extend from the skin above the elbow up into the underarm.
Compression garments are worn to reduce swelling and encourage proper skin contouring after surgery. Pain medication is given before, during and after surgery so you are always as comfortable as possible. Bruising and swelling lasts 2-4 weeks, and you may be able to resume strenuous activities in 4-6 weeks.
