Arm Lift Houston (BRACHIOPLASTY)

What Is a Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)?

Brachioplasty surgery is a relatively new arm lift procedure that was up over 20% in 2017. This cosmetic arm lift surgery improves the contour and appearance of the upper arms by eliminating excess fat and loose skin which has not responded to diet and exercise.

When performed by a double board certified surgeon like Dr. Do in Houston, this procedure is a safe and effective way to improve your self-confidence and reverse the stubborn effects of aging, childbirth, or rapid weight loss.

What Are the Benefits of Brachioplasty vs. Liposuction?

Your arm lift surgeon will help determine if you will benefit from brachioplasty, liposuction, or a combination of procedures that will create the best results. While liposuction is helpful in removing excess fat, when there is also excess skin present it may not be enough by itself to restore a healthy arm contour.

Brachioplasty surgery provides a better result for individuals with skin that has lost its elasticity over time. Treating skin laxity and eliminating loose drooping skin is the primary benefit of the arm lift surgery procedure.

Take Into Consideration

Am I a Good Candidate?

You may be a good candidate for brachioplasty if you are:
  • An adult with excess skin and fat on the underside of the arms
  • A person of any age who is maintaining a stable weight
  • A healthy individual without conditions that might complicate surgery or slow healing
  • A person with realistic expectations and a positive outlook
  • A mature woman or one who has recently been pregnant
  • A non-smoker between the ages of 19 and 64
What to Expect

The Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure

It will take about 2 hours for the arm lift surgeon to complete your procedure, which will entail:

  1. Skin Contouring–Using the smallest possible incisions, usually on the inside or back of the arm, your surgeon will remove excess fat and skin to achieve your desired result. The incisions are closed with stitches which will dissolve on their own within 1-2 weeks.
  2. Bandaging and Dressing–A small tube may be put in the incision to allow any fluids to drain safely. Bandages will be applied, and an elastic bandage or compression sleeve might be used to speed healing.
  3. Waking and After-Care–You will receive instructions before you are ready to leave the institute about caring for your incisions and schedule any necessary follow-up appointments. You should plan for someone else to drive you home safely.
