Remove Excess Skin for Toned Upper Arms
Losing weight can be a rewarding experience that can significantly boost your self-esteem, however, many patients are left with large amounts of sagging skin that detract from their results. Age and genetics can also lead to significant sagging skin. For patients with excess skin under their upper arms, an arm lift, or brachioplasty, is often recommended to remove the tissue for a more toned appearance. Stephen T.

Patients of Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery can be confident not only in Dr. Greenberg’s abilities to but his dedication to patient satisfaction.
Tighten and Tone with an Arm Lift
Patients that have lost substantial weight, or have excess skin that hangs underneath their arms are great candidates for an arm lift. Dr. Greenberg offers the procedure to remove the extra skin to help patients achieve tighter, more tone arms. The treatment is often combined with Smart Liposuction for the very best results.
Is an Arm Lift Right For You?
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a body contouring procedure that is performed to remove sagging skin and excess fat and tighten remaining tissues. If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your upper arms, an arm lift may be the solution to help you feel more confident. Patients who wish to undergo an arm lift should be committed to a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain their weight. This commitment is imperative as substantial or consistent weight fluctuation can lead to development of excess fat and skin in the future.
Additionally, overall health is an important aspect of any surgical treatment. Those with medical conditions that may conflict with the healing process as well as smokers may not be candidates for this procedure. Patients at a higher risk for complications will be extensively evaluated to ensure their safety.
Following your procedure, will will monitor your condition as you recuperate in our recovery room. Once you have recovered from the effects of anesthesia, you can return home. About one to two days later, you will return to our facility to ensure that there are no complications and that you are healing properly. You will also be provided with a compression garment which should be worn until Dr. Greenberg advises otherwise.
The Surgical Process
Typically, the brachioplasty procedure will take about one to two hours. Before your treatment, you will be provided with anesthesia to ensure your comfort. To begin, Dr. Greenberg will make an incision in the underside or back of the upper arm. Depending on the extent of concerns being addressed, the incision may extend from the armpit to the elbow. Dr. Greenberg will ensure that your incisions are placed in the most inconspicuous location possible.
