About Arm Lift Surgery
Countless men and women are seeking cosmetic solutions to reduce unwanted sagging or excessive skin found in their upper arm area. Thanks to the incredible skill of Las Vegas, NV Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile and modern surgical excision techniques, an arm lift surgery can be performed to bring great improvement. Typically, those who are seeking arm lift surgery have recently lost a lot of weight or simply want to improve the definition in their upper arm. Sophisticated tightening techniques will be used to improve loose skin and liposuction may also be used to reduce unwanted fat pockets. However, at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, all our patients receive a thorough consultation to determine their treatment plan.
While weight loss can cause sagging skins to appear on the arms, some of the loose skin can also be caused from genetics. This makes it very difficult to tone the upper arm to an individual’s desire. When diet and exercise fail to tone the upper arm, a trusted plastic surgeon may create outstanding results. Ideal candidates for an arm lift exhibit:
- Loose upper arm skin that is resistant to diet and exercise
- Loose upper arm skin that appears after losing more than 100 pounds
- Sagging skin that creates anxiety when wearing sleeveless shirts

What to Expect
After being put under general anesthesia, the incision for brachioplasty is made from the elbow to the upper arm. Loose skin will be trimmed away and the underlying tissue will be pulled tight. This surgery takes about 2 hours and there is usually no need for an overnight stay unless it is paired with other procedures. Patients should be prepared for temporary swelling and bruising after the surgery. To promote healthy healing and blood circulation, the arms should be kept elevated. Patients can usually return to normal activities in about 3 – 4 weeks.
For best results, an arm lift may require liposuction of the fat deposits within the upper arm to make them look slim and trim. The skin tightening may not be enough to have taut arms. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss the best course of action given your skin's health and condition. Keep in mind that most of the stretch marks will also be taken with the skin, however, if weight is regained, it could damage the treated area. An arm lift gives patients the opportunity to have more defined arms for years to come.
