Arm Lift

After achieving a weight loss goal, or sometimes through the course of aging, patients are left with loose skin and stubborn pockets of fat in the upper arm area. Most affected patients would avoid wearing sleeveless shirts and may have trouble wearing shirts with fitted sleeves. They may also avoid recreational activities that would involve movement where the appearance of their arms would be visible.

Goal of an Arm Lift

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removing loose or sagging skin, and commonly also liposuction to remove any excess fat deposits. Afterwards, the patient will have a more youthful appearance and will be able to resume normal activity without any movement or clothing restrictions.

Our Approach

At Southern Surgical Arts, we want to ensure your complete satisfaction. To begin with, we will listen attentively to your aesthetic goals before recommending any solutions, surgical or non-surgical. Whenever possible, we will help you achieve your goal in a way that looks natural and involves the very least amount of scarring possible and minimal downtime.

Surgical Technique

In many cosmetic surgery procedures, the surgeon can work from a hidden entry point and completely conceal the scar. Because the goal with an arm lift is to remove excess skin in an area that is completely exposed, scarring is unavoidable. For most patients this is an acceptable consequence for getting rid of the excess skin.

Our Surgeons

During your complimentary in-person consultation at Southern Surgical Arts with our experienced board certified, fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Chad Deal, Dr. Vincent Gardner, or Dr. Carey Nease, you will discuss your aesthetic goals and they will recommend the best course of action.
