What is an arm lift?
An arm lift, medically referred to as a brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arm area. An arm lift creates a well-defined, trim and toned upper arm that complements your figure as well as your wardrobe.
You may want an arm lift if you:
• Have excess skin or dropping in upper arms
• Lost a significant amount of weight
• Excessively tanned
• Show aging in arms
• Are unable to tone arms to your liking
The Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure Beverly Hills
During the procedure, an incision is made on the bottom side of the upper arm from near the elbow all the way to the armpit. Once the incision is made, loose skin is carefully removed to create a new contour to the upper arm. Liposuction may be performed if there is any significant fat accumulation within the upper arms. Dr. Calvert takes great care in minimalizing scarring for this procedure. On average, an arm lift takes approximately two hours and is typically performed under general anesthesia.
