What is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the upper arms by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying supportive tissues. This procedure is commonly sought by individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or aging, which can result in loose, sagging skin and fat deposits in the upper arm area. During an arm lift, an incision is made along the inner arm, extending from the armpit to the elbow, allowing the surgeon to remove excess tissue and reshape the arm contours. The remaining skin is then repositioned and tightened to create a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. Arm lift surgery can help restore confidence and enhance the overall proportion and symmetry of the arms, resulting in a more toned and sculpted upper body silhouette.

Reasons To Consider Arm Lift Surgery:

Arm lift patients in Encino predominantly undergo this surgery to slim their upper arms by surgically removing excess fat deposits and loose, sagging skin from the back and underside of the upper arms. More specifically, when the deflated or drooping appearance to the upper arms is due to lax skin and creating the “batwing” look, an arm lift is the best option for long-term correction. In many cases, individuals undergo the procedure after significant weight loss or pregnancy, but genetics and age could influence the condition.

In addition to notable skin enhancements, arm lift surgery could improve the arm’s underlying tissues responsible for supporting the newly tightened skin. For instance, Dr. Yaghoubian may be able to tighten the underlying tissue to smoothen the upper arms’ skin and define muscle contours further.

What To Expect From An Arm Lift Procedure:

Most often, arm lift surgery in Encino alters the upper arms, specifically between the armpits and the elbows, with incisions hidden along the back or underside of the arms. If a patient has a moderate or significant amount of excess fat on the upper arms, liposuction is the typical technique for removing the deposits before addressing other concerns. Next, Dr. Yaghoubian may tighten and reshape the underlying tissue using sutures to redefine and enhance muscle contours even further.

Afterward, she can trim the necessary amount of skin tissue away from the arms, which will vary between patients. Finally, an arm lift ensures that the remaining skin is tightly repositioned over the muscle contours to create a visibly more toned and healthy appearance. Typically, patients may resume strenuous activities, including heavy lifting and physical exercise, after four to eight weeks of recovery.

As you get older and your body goes through physical changes, you may see a decline in your muscle definition and increasing amounts of sagging skin on your upper arms. Though you could improve your muscle contours at home with diet and exercise, the most effective option for restoring definition to your upper arms is removing most of that extra skin from the back and undersides. The best choice for achieving these cosmetic changes and redefining your upper arms for the long-term is a surgical arm lift in Encino.

The surgery reduces excess fat deposits and trims away drooping skin while strengthening the underlying tissues to restore defined contours to your arms, though there may be some scarring afterward. If you are unhappy with the look of your arms due to worsening skin laxity, get in touch with the team at AESTHETICA LA to discuss how the operation could be beneficial to you.
