Now You Can Achieve Sculpted Arms

Designed to reshape the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow, the award-winning Changes surgical team achieves dramatic results with minimal downtime and scarring. Say goodbye to sagging arms and hello to smoother, more toned contours.

Why Choose Arm Lift Surgery?

Fluctuations in weight, aging, and heredity can lead to the development of sagging and drooping upper arms, creating an undesirable appearance often referred to as "bat wings."

While exercise can strengthen the underlying muscles, it can't address excess skin, weakened tissues, and localized fat deposits. If you find that the underside of your upper arms lacks firmness due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift in San Diego may be the ideal solution for you.

Changes also offers a less invasive Scarless Arm Lift, though brachioplasty may be a better choice for those with a lot of excess, droopy skin. In either case, your surgeon will take care to create a customized treatment plan that completely satisfies your unique ambitions.

What to Expect from the Arm Lift Procedure

The Arm Lift procedure involves several key steps to ensure the best results:

  • Incision Pattern: The typical incision pattern for Brachioplasty is usually placed on the inside of the arm or the back of the arm, extending from the underarm to just above the elbow. Your surgeon will tailor your incision to meet your aesthetic goals and desires and make the scar as inconspicuous as possible.
  • Liposuction: If excess fat is present, liposuction is performed to reduce fat volume.
  • Tissue Tightening: The underlying tissues are tightened and reshaped using internal sutures.
  • Skin Smoothing: The skin is then smoothed over the newly contoured arm.
  • Closure: The incision is carefully closed with sutures.

Post-procedure, the incisions are wrapped in an elastic bandage or compression garment to minimize swelling. In some cases, small drains may be placed under the skin to facilitate the drainage of excess blood or fluid.

While the true results may be initially obscured by swelling and bruising, patients can enjoy smoother, tighter, and more toned upper arms almost immediately. 

The skilled surgeons at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, renowned for their expertise in body contouring, work diligently to ensure optimal results. Arm lift surgery can also be seamlessly combined with other body contouring procedures, making it an integral component of body contouring after significant weight loss.
