Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) In Salt Lake City

Losing a large amount of weight is a life-changing achievement with many health benefits. Still, many men and women who lose the fat are left with embarrassing excess skin hanging off their arms. This problem with so-called “bat wings” cannot be fixed with diet and exercise alone because the skin has already lost its elasticity and cannot tighten up naturally. The arm lift is designed to provide an answer to this problem, helping to tone and tighten the look of the arms.

Is an Arm Lift Right For Me?

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise. Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.

    An Arm Lift is a surgical procedure that:
  • Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
  • Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
  • Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

How Does An Arm Lift Work?

In order to tone and tighten your arm, the excess skin must be removed. Your plastic surgeon will make an incision on the inner portion of your upper arm. From there, any leftover excess fatty tissue can be removed using liposuction.

The underlying tissue and muscle is then repaired to provide a firm base for your arm. The skin is then pulled tight with any excess amounts trimmed away before the incisions are closed.

Recovering From An Arm Lift

After your arm lift, you will need to limit your levels of activity for about a 10 day recovery period. Don’t try to lift anything heavy or perform any weight lifting exercises for about a month.

Using bandages and surgical compression garments will help to reduce any swelling of your arm and will provide you with the best possible results. Over time, your scars will fade and your arms will appear much more trimmed and toned.
