Get the Figure You Desire
with Brachioplasty Arm Lift Surgery

Brachioplasty, also referred to as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and fat deposits in the upper arm. With aging or massive weight loss, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Surgical removal of excess skin and fat can restore youthful contour to the arm. In patients with mild fat excess and good skin tone, liposuction alone may provide a good improvement.

Dr. Paul Angelchik is a Phoenix plastic surgery specialist who offers brachioplasty at his practice. In the paragraphs below he describes this procedure and how Scottsdale, Glendale and Phoenix brachioplasty patients have benefited from treatment.

Brachioplasty: The Options

The brachioplasty is an excellent procedure for patients who are willing to accept the tradeoff of a scar for improvement in contour. While some brachioplasty procedures utilize short scar in the upper arm and underarm, more advanced skin laxity typically requires a longer-scar procedure to address it adequately. The incision may be made in the inner arm or along the back of the arm. This approach, along the back of the arm, seems to yield the most dramatic improvement in contour over time. Scarring from brachioplasty procedures can be significant and patients must understand and accept this issue before proceeding with surgery. However, the positive changes in contour are often very dramatic and for many patients are worth the scar.

Brachioplasty: The Procedure

Brachioplasty is done under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. A drain may be used. Sutures are absorbable and placed under the skin. Patients are on antibiotics for one week after surgery. Pain is well-controlled with oral medication. Most patients describe the pain after surgery as moderate. Recovery time varies, but patients can resume most normal activities within 2 weeks.

Major brachioplasty complications are rare.

In addition to brachioplasty, Dr. Angelchik also performs other body contouring procedures in his Phoenix area plastic surgery practice.
