ARM LIFT SURGERY | BRACHIOPLASTY | CHICAGO

at Concierge Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery

An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the underside of the upper arm to restore a more youthful shape. Brachioplasty removes excess skin and/or fat that causes the area spanning from the elbow to the armpit to sag, producing a “winging” effect. Brachioplasty is ideal for individuals with skin laxity due to aging, significant weight loss, or genetic predisposition of the upper arms to sag or appear loose.

ARM LIFT BEFORE AND AFTER*

Arm lift before and after pictures depict real patients. These patients are chosen to represent examples of achievable results, although results vary based on initial presentation and outcome goals. The impressive outcomes shown in these before and after images underline the importance of choosing the right plastic surgeon for your needs. 

THE PROCEDURE

Brachioplasty is a same day (outpatient) procedure. Once you arrive at our designated surgical center and speak with the anesthesiologist, you will be placed under general anesthesia.

Brachioplasty incisions are placed on the back of the arm (posteriorly) or inside the arm (medially) where the arm rests along the body depending on individual patient preference and goals. The length of the incision depends on the severity of laxity and the amount of skin to be excised. Regardless of where the incision is placed, a scar will be intermittently visible when the arm is in certain positions. After making the incision, Dr. Hill will remove excess fat and skin from the arm.  Internal sutures are placed and the remaining skin is then smoothed over the new contour of the arm prior to final sutures and dressings.

WHAT IS THE ARM LIFT LIKE?​

During an arm lift or brachioplasty, the excess skin and fat are removed from between the armpit and elbow. The remaining skin is placed back over the newly repositioned contours to create a more toned look.

WHAT ARE THE ARM LIFT RESULTS LIKE?

Arm lift results are typically long lasting. Remember, however, your skin will naturally lose some firmness as you age and some sagging might occur. Maintaining a stable, healthy weight can help you retain your results. Concierge Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery offers Breast Reconstructive and other Plastic Surgery Procedures to patients in Aurora, Chicago and the nearby cities of Illinois.

ARM LIFT FAQs

ARM LIFT FAQS

You will need a few weeks to recover and heal from an arm lift procedure. It will be at least one or two weeks before you can return to work and about ten days before you can drive.
After surgery a compression dressing will be placed to limit swelling. Activities will be restricted for two weeks following the procedure to ensure proper healing and minimize swelling, and all postoperative instructions will be discussed thoroughly at your preoperative appointment.
Results will initially be obscured by swelling and compression garments, but once the swelling resolves and the garments are removed your results will be visible. Scars will fade over the following months, with final results being visible about 1 year after surgery.
Brachioplasty prices vary per patient and are influenced by multiple factors, including:
  • extent of tissue excision
  • anesthesia and surgical center fees
  • medication prescription costs
  • compression garments
