Arm Lift

Arm Lift

Introduction to

As we age, the skin under our arms begins to sag. Excess arm skin can be even more pronounced and frustrating for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and worked hard to do so. Because it is skin and not muscle or fat, you can’t exercise it into shape. The only way to remove it is through Arm Lift surgery. An arm lift is a surgical procedure done to create smoother, more toned, and better contours of the arms. This procedure at Aesthetic Contours can prove incredibly beneficial for people who have lost a significant amount of weight or suffer from excess skin around the lower part of the arms.

At our premier practice, located in The Inland Empire (Upland, Ca), our arm lift patients have seen tremendous benefits from the procedure. Below, we’ve included more information on the surgery. If you have any questions or would like to book a consultation, please contact us today.

What is an Arm Lift?

Aesthetic Contours

At Aesthetic Contours, we aim to provide tailored, personalized care in a beautiful, state-of-the-art environment. We know that every patient is unique. At our Upland location, we provide attention to detail and information with every procedure. An Upper Arm Lift, also known as Brachioplasty, is a beneficial procedure that our skilled team specializes in. Building muscle through weight training can lessen the appearance of sagging skin on the arms, but it cannot entirely correct many people’s issues. An Arm Lift can help an individual surpass limitations and finally achieve the look you want in the arm area, removing sagging skin that makes many people self-conscious. The procedure can be beneficial for those dealing with age-related skin elasticity loss.

What are the Benefits of Arm Lift?

The benefits of an Arm Lift can be physical and psychological and create a new form of confidence for anyone seeking the procedure. Brachioplasty reduces sagging skin and tightens and smooths supportive tissue under the arm area. This improves comfort and prevents inflammation and rashes due to excess folds of skin which can sometimes lead to infection. Other benefits from Upper Arm Lift include:

  • Excess fat and skin is removed
  • Changes in tone and shape
  • Improves contours
  • Better proportions of the arm area
  • Scars are hidden (with an arm lift, the scars are hidden either in the inner arm, at the armpit, or at the back of the arm)
  • Confidence is restored
  • More clothing options (following an arm lift, you may notice that your shirt size has gone down)
  • Better workout results

This process helps ensure that you can experience the procedure safely and that an Arm Lift is the best means to meet your personal aesthetic goals.

What to Expect on the Day of Arm Lift

Aesthetic Contours

Comfort and clarity are incredibly vital to us on the day of your procedure. During an Arm Lift, Dr. Ali Heidari will remove excess fat and skin and tighten underlying supportive tissues. Dr. Heidari will make the incision toward the back of the arm so the scar is less visible and you have a more natural aesthetically pleasing result. Sometimes, liposuction is combined with the procedure for fat removal. Once the incisions are closed, a dressing is placed around the arms, and a light compression garment may be used for two to three weeks.

In some cases, drains are inserted for a day or two. While you may lose additional weight through an Arm Lift, this procedure is not meant as a weight-loss tool but as a way to sculpt the upper arms.

Arm Lift Recovery

Aesthetic Contours

After your procedure, you will wear a soft dressing for three to four days and a compression garment for two to three weeks. Pain is very tolerable, and you can return to regular daily activity after about two weeks and return to regular exercise after about five to six weeks.
