Remove Excess Skin and Shape Your Arms With Brachioplasty Surgery
The upper arm (between the shoulder and elbow) is an area that tends to store fat. Excessively flabby arm skin, either after significant weight loss, or with advancing age can, be cosmetically addressed with an arm lift. Dr. Greg Chernoff may also suggest a non-surgical skin tightening procedure in combination with ultrasound-assisted liposuction to remove fat for optimal results.
What Is An Arm Lift?
An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to remove excess skin and fat deposits from the upper arm. In this instance, skin is removed from the arm area leaving a discrete scar on the backside of the arm. Dr. Chernoff may also tighten the underlying tissues to create a tauter and smoother appearance. In some cases, both liposuction and skin subtraction are needed to control a large and flabby arm.
EVERYONE is so nice, very professional. Their care is 10+. Dr. Chernoff’s mannerisms and expertise in cosmetic surgery procedures is off the chart. They have such a wide array of procedures available and pictures of such patient’s results says it all...EXCELLENT! I will miss seeing the office staff team after my post care. I am certain I will go to Chernoff if ever I want any more procedures performed."

Are You Candidate For An Arm Lift
Arm lifts are usually done on older patients or people who have lost a lot of weight and have been left with sagging skin. An arm lift can be done on its own or along with other procedures. A good arm lift candidate is a healthy man or woman at an ideal weight who has realistic expectations about the procedure. It is important that an arm lift patient has stabilized their weight so that they can have optimal results.
Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery patients will often combine an arm lift with other body shaping procedures such as liposuction of the abdomen, hips, and/or thighs. Additionally, our patients having surgical face procedures, such as a laser eyelid lift, facelift, or neck lift, may benefit from an arm lift completed along with their other procedures.
A customized treatment plan will be developed in your initial consultation in order to help you achieve the best possible results. Additionally, Dr. Chernoff will explain all options to reduce fat and improve the shape of your arms, both non-surgical treatments such as CoolSculpting, or a new procedure called BodyTite, that is a less invasive option compared to a traditional arm lift.
How Is An Arm Lift Performed?
Prior to any surgery, a complete medical history is taken to evaluate the patient’s general health. Dr. Chernoff will do a thorough examination to determine the most effective surgical approach. He will describe the type of anesthesia to be used, the procedure, what results might realistically be expected, and the possible risks and complications.
Preparing for Surgery
Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our “Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery”. The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.
What Is The Arm Lift Recovery Process?
After your arm lift surgery, incisions are covered with bandages and your arms will be wrapped in elastic bandages to minimize swelling. Directly following your arm lift surgery, we recommend that patients rest and limit activity. Dr. Chernoff requires patients to wear a compression garment that is provided to you after your surgery. This garment promotes healing and optimizes the results of your surgery.
Pain connected with the arm lift procedure is mild-to-moderate but is controlled with oral medication. Daily showers and antibiotics will be continued to prevent infection. Instructions for the day of surgery include rest and limited activities.
Dr. Chernoff will determine when normal activities can be resumed; however, weight training and aerobic exercise must be avoided for a period. Swelling, bruising, numbness and over sensitivity around the surgical area may occur, but these conditions are usually temporary.
What Results Can You Expect After Your Surgery?
While the results of an arm lift are more or less permanent, they do not stop the aging process. The patient can prolong the surgery’s results by maintaining a healthy weight and staying in shape.
