Brachioplasty could be the perfect solution for all Beverly Hills and Los Angeles residents who want to regain their toned, youthful arms.

What is An Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

An arm lift is also referred to as a brachioplasty and it can be used by Dr. Schwartz to help you address excess skin on your upper arm, in addition to being an excellent option for individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight which can often result in lax skin that interferes with regular activity or makes buying clothing difficult. If you have lax skin on your arms, you may find that it detracts from your appearance, in which case an arm lift with Dr. Schwartz may be right for you.

Benefits of An Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

One of the most embarrassing places on your body to have extra skin and fat is the upper arms. Arm Lift procedures, called brachioplasty, are performed to eliminate the excess fat and skin that sometimes occurs under the arms as a result of normal aging or following weight loss. While you may lose additional weight through a brachioplasty, this procedure is not meant as a weight-loss tool, but as post-weight loss sculpting under the upper arm.

Elements of an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

All lifting procedures result in greatly improved body contouring, and in the case of an arm lift, the length, and location of your incisions is entirely dependent upon your individual concerns and the amount of excess or lax skin that needs to be excised. Dr. Schwartz carefully selects his incision pattern to best disguise scarring, and additionally, his expert closures and dressings provide the best environment for optimal healing of the incisions

What Is An Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure?

Arm lifts are performed under general anesthesia and are often performed along with other body contouring procedures, such as a body lift, thigh lift or abdominoplasty (sometimes called a tummy tuck). During your procedure, an incision is placed under the arm, beginning at the armpit and extending to the elbow. Dr. Schwartz removes any excess skin and superficial fat and then closes the incision as invisibly as is possible. The procedure takes about one to two hours, depending upon the amount of fat and excess skin to be excised.

How Long Is The Recovery After An Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure?

Following your brachioplasty, you will experience some minor soreness and mild bruising at the incision sites, which can be diminished with pain medication and ice packs. Most patients are back to full activity within a week. When you leave Dr. Schwartz’s office following your procedure, your follow-up appointment will be set, and you’ll visit us within a few days to check on your progress. Dr. Schwartz recommends that patients avoid strenuous physical activity for about a month after their procedure and also avoid any contact sports or other activities that might cause trauma to the area. You will find that the scar will always be somewhat visible but will fade over time to a fine line.
