Arm Lift in Los Angeles | Beverly Hills

Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, specifically from the underarm region to the elbow. Fluctuations in weight, growing older and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address any excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits.

If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you, enhancing and tightening the appearance of your arm.

Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia which means you will be asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may choose to stay in a near-by aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse is available. The surgery itself generally takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. Afterward, you will return to your home, aftercare facility or hotel conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center.
