What is an arm lift?

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that addresses sagging or excess skin on the upper arms. 

The main goal of this procedure is to create definition in the upper arms for a more youthful and proportionate appearance. Whether your skin is sagging due to age, genetics, or significant weight loss, an arm lift can:

  • Reduce the appearance of sagging underarms
  • Contour and shape the arms 
  • Smoother the skin’s appearance
  • Leave your arms looking toned and tightened

At North Texas Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Greenberg works closely with you to help you achieve the appearance you desire.

Who is a candidate for an arm lift?

If you want toner, younger-looking arms, Dr. Greenberg recommends maintaining a healthy weight, following a balanced diet and lifestyle, and refraining from smoking. Individuals pursuing significant weight loss should be within a few pounds of their ideal weight before undergoing the procedure.

Will I need general anesthesia for an arm lift?

North Texas Cosmetic Surgery specializes in performing procedures under tumescent anesthesia rather than general anesthesia. While you may be sleepy during the procedure, you can remain conscious and respond to any instructions or communication from the surgical team. 

This approach offers several advantages, including enhanced safety, reduced risk of complications, and a quicker recovery time.

I’m getting an arm lift. What can I expect?

Every arm lift at North Texas Cosmetic Surgery is unique. Patients with minimal excess skin may be candidates for a mini arm lift, while others may require standard techniques. When you meet with Dr. Greenberg at your initial consultation, he explains the various options to address any concerns you may have.

The procedure takes about one to three hours. While your arms may be tender, swollen, and bruised immediately after surgery, they should appear trimmer and toner right away. Full results are typically apparent within three to six months once the swelling subsides. 

Brachioplasty is a permanent solution for sagging arms, excess skin, and a more rejuvenated appearance. You can enjoy long-lasting results by maintaining a healthy weight and fitness regimen.
