Brachioplasty: Arm Lift

Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and genetics can cause upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance because of excess skin under the arms. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.

Benefits of arm lift (brachioplasty) surgery include:

    • Reduction of excess sagging skin that droops under the arms

    • Smoothing and tightening the underlying supportive tissue to define the shape of the upper arm

    • Reduction of localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Technique and Recovery

Dr. Lesesne believes that the traditional brachioplasty procedure can be avoided in many cases. Dr. Lesesne’s unique method involves using a small 1.5mm cannula to remove the fat over the muscle, which enhances the natural outline of the triceps and biceps brachii muscles, resulting in a more youthful, toned arm. It also preserves sensation and allows for a rapid recovery while contouring the upper arms.

Arm lift surgery is performed in our Park Avenue surgical suite in New York City, and can be done under local anesthesia or with IV sedation administered by our board certified anesthesiologists. This procedure takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours of surgery time and no sutures are required.

Depending on volume, bruising can last from 1-8 days after surgery. Many patients return to work and regular activities 2-8 days after their procedure.
