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
"I couldn't be more pleased with my results and Dr Stile. After two kids I decided to have a breast augmentation and I am so glad I went to Dr Stile. He was very professional and told me exactly what to expect and made me feel at ease (I was very nervous of getting the procedure done) , his nurse Natalie was awesome and the rest of his staff was very pleasant. He actually exceeded my expectations!"- N.C. / Yelp / Jul 26, 2018
"Dr. Stile is amazing. From the moment I met him I knew he would be my surgeon of choice. He took the time to listen and to explain the surgery in detail. The day of surgery he came and talked to me and gave me a big hug and said let's do this!! I felt so at ease I never had any 2nd thoughts. My follow up care has been amazing as well. Thanks Dr. Stile :)"- D.G. / Yelp / Jul 18, 2018
"Review on behalf of a patient who got Radiesse injections by Rakhi. The results for the jaw, under eye, and lips couldn't be more stunning! She was initially nervous about the swelling, but after a week, the results showed themselves to be beautiful. She is normally hesitant regarding injections as no one seems to satisfy what she's looking for. It's safe to say she will see Rakhi for any future treatments. She gives Rakhi her highest praise and recommends her to anyone looking for natural and stunning results."- S.S. / Yelp / Jul 15, 2018
"Amazing Surgeon!!! Dr. Stile is a perfectionist and really understands what it takes to make a woman feel beautiful. He's honest and is realistic about what you should expect from results. He had to correct some previous work done by another surgeon and I have never been happier! His staff is super friendly and professional. I have recommended him to several friends. I will only ever see him for any further needs."- S.J. / Yelp / Jul 11, 2018
"I'm am very pleased with my experience with Dr Stile and his team! I had a tummy tuck, liposuction on my flanks and neck. I'm a plus size girl that had 2 pregnancies and Dr explained what happens to your abdominal after having children, something I never really realized. It was important that he educated me about this process. I felt at ease and after doing my research on his work I knew he was the right plastic surgeon for me. DrStile personally called me before my procedure and told me everything was gonna be fine and make sure I get rest. The day of the surgery the 2 nurses that I took amazing care of me was Kelly and Shannon. And from my pre-op and post-op was nurse Yesenia! She helped answer a lot of my questions, and made feel comfortable through every step My results after my healing process was better than I expected! I did have minor pain after the 1st , 3 days but overall it was I wasn't in much pain. Anyway overall I'm very pleased with my results, and he made me feel " my beautiful " again for me! Thank you again Dr Stile for your professional and perfection!"- S.L. / Yelp / Jul 03, 2018
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.
