Arm Lift or Brachioplasty

Is loose, sagging skin and fat in your upper arms preventing you from wearing the athletic tops and sleeveless dresses that you have always wanted? Do you wish your upper arms looked more toned and defined? Have you lost a significant amount of weight and now have loose skin as a result?

Weight loss and/or natural aging can cause skin between the armpit and the elbow to sag, become less firm, turn lumpy and lose shape. Plus, the constant rubbing can cause skin irritation. If you’re always hiding your arms or feeling unhappy about their appearance, Dr. Srikanth at the Center for Weight Loss Surgery can help you resolve these issues with an arm lift in Seattle.

Through a minimally invasive arm lift procedure, you can achieve significant shaping and sculpting, giving you the contoured arms you’ve always wanted. Once swelling diminishes, you can expect to see sleeker more shapely arms.

What Is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves liposuction of the upper arm to remove the excessive and unwanted fat. The surgeon removes the redundant skin, thereby restoring contour – so that you can feel confident wearing your tanktop again. This often can be done in conjunction with cosmetic breast surgery and/or removal of troublesome upper trunk fat folds (upper body lift). After your arm fat removal surgery, you can return to work or school within two weeks, and normal activity levels within six weeks. The long-term results of an arm lift after weight loss can be excellent. While you may lose some firmness with age, the overall improvement can last for many years. When considering an arm reduction, you’ll want to find an experienced, skilled surgeon you can trust to do the procedure correctly. Dr Srikanth is a cosmetic surgeon who is American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery fellowship-trained and American Board of Cosmetic Surgery certified, and has years of experience in body contouring after weight loss. However, not all saggy arms require surgery, so talk to our professional staff to learn if this procedure is a good fit for you.
