Arm Lift 101: The What, Why, and How of Arm Lifts

As we age, loose skin under the arms can cause both confidence and mobility issues. Loose underarm skin often chafes and catches on clothing. Sagging arms can also limit our wardrobe choices in the warmer months, an unfortunate and unnecessary blow to confidence and freedom. But did you know there’s a way to redefine and rejuvenate our arms without spending fruitless hours sweating at the gym? If you’ve been dealing with confidence issues related to your arms, you might consider having an arm lift.

If you’re ready to enhance the appearance and function of your arms, an arm lift can give you all that and more. But what is an arm lift, and what can you expect from the procedure? At Pinnacle Plastic Surgery, we’re here to give you the basics of this cutting-edge treatment.

The Arm Lift Procedure

An arm lift, otherwise known as Brachioplasty, is a procedure that removes excess skin between the armpit and elbow. Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia, during which time your surgeon will create a more toned look with new, smoothed contours. The result will be reduced chafing, enhanced fit in your clothing, and an all-around boost in confidence. The procedure is not only safe but also highly effective.

You may be an ideal candidate for having an arm lift if you currently have a significant amount of sagging skin on the upper arm and are in good health overall. Our expert team here at Pinnacle Plastic Surgery will make careful and precise incisions, resulting in the best possible outcome for you. You’ll find the before and after to be an amazing transformation!

Benefits of an Arm Lift

So, why should you choose to have an arm lift? There are many benefits to having this procedure done. An arm lift can tighten, lift, and smooth your arms, providing you with:

  • Improvement in bodily proportions
  • More youthful aesthetic
  • Improved fit in clothing
  • Sustainable results
  • Self-confidence improvement
  • Reduction of excess skin and fat
  • An overall sleeker and more defined appearance

The bottom line is this: you’ll notice a significant difference in the profile of your arms. You’ll have less sagging skin and fat to manage, freeing you to move, groove, and raise the roof with confidence.

Arm Lift Recovery 

The entire arm lift procedure will only take between three and four hours. After the procedure is complete, you can expect some swelling and bruising. However, this will slowly dissipate over time. Wearing a compression garment on your arms for a few weeks after the procedure will support the healing tissue and help minimize the swelling. The majority of patients can return to work and normal activities after 10 days. 

Your surgeon at Pinnacle will review all of your post-operative instructions in detail before and after the procedure. We’re here to ensure that you know everything you need to know and have all your questions answered!

Next Steps

An arm lift is a sophisticated procedure that can have a huge impact on the way you see yourself and move through the world in stride. The best part is that you’ll immediately notice a smoother contour after the arm lift. After just a few short months, you’ll get the full benefits and see a major difference.
