What Is an Arm Lift?

 An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:

  • Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
  • Tightens and smooths the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
  • Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Dr. Park may combine arm lift surgery with other procedures such as liposuction and a tummy tuck to address multiple concerns with a single surgery and recovery period.

What Are the Benefits of Arm Lift Surgery?

Arm lift surgery provides several benefits, including:

  • The confidence to wear sleeveless shirts
  • Improved fit and comfort in sleeves
  • More balanced body proportions

Many arm lift patients feel that having firmer, slimmer arms helps them to feel more youthful.

Dr. Park’s Approach:

Brachioplasty has become more common with the increased popularity of weight loss surgery. An arm lift is an operation that truly trades scarring for shape. There is a long scar from the armpit to the elbow in most cases. This incision is necessary to remove the excess skin and fat. This results in a much-improved shape, although the scar is visible with certain arm positions. Patients often tell me that the scar is well worth it, as they feel much less self-conscious about their arm shape.

What Is Recovery Like After an Arm Lift?

Dr. Park bandages the incisions before your return home and places small tubes under your skin to drain excess fluid during the initial healing process. You’ll wear a tight-fitting sleeve, called a compression garment, that helps reduce swelling and promotes good results. Discomfort peaks during the first few days of recovery, and you can manage it with prescription pain relief medication.

You should plan to take 1 to 2 weeks off from a job that doesn’t require strenuous physical activity. Closely following Dr. Park’s post-op instructions helps reduce the time needed to recover and complication risks.
