Arm Lift

Ideal Patient:

  • Sagging, droopy skin on underside of upper arm
  • Loose, excess skin and fat on upper arm
  • Extreme weight loss

The Method:

An arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of the upper arm between the underarm and the elbow by reducing excess skin and underlying fat. Loss of elasticity in the skin and underlying tissue of the upper arm can occur due to significant weight loss, aging or heredity.

Brachioplasty is a common solution for patients who have recently undergone bariatric surgery and have lost an immense amount of weight. Following extreme weight loss, excess skin remains and hangs loose around various body parts. Dr. Kagan utilizes a variety of sophisticated techniques to help improve the body contours of his patients.

The Procedure:

During an arm lift,the patient is placed under general anesthesia and an incision is made inside the upper arm. The length and pattern of the incision will depend on the amount and location of excess skin and fat to be removed. The underlying supportive tissues are then tightened to complete the procedure
