Arm Lift

An arm lift or brachioplasty is used to help improve the contour and definition of your arms. With excess weight loss or over time due to the effects of gravity, your arms may develop a saggy, less toned and flabby look. Weight training and fitness may help to strengthen and tone the underlying muscle, but excess skin and fat will remain and result in your arms having poor definition and unhealthy look. An arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat and restore your arms to a more youthful, toned appearance.




Arm lift or brachioplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia so you will be asleep during the entire surgery. This surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but sometimes patients stay overnight for observation. Out-of-town patients may stay in one of our overnight recovery suites with a nurse that is available. The surgery itself generally takes around 1-2 hours, and may be longer depending on whether there are any additional procedures being performed . After your surgery, you will be able to go home or stay in the overnight facility with office follow-up soon thereafter. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling for about a week or two after surgery, but most patients can usually return to work soon thereafter.

During your consultation, Dr. Benjamin J. Cousins M.D. will examine you, discuss your specific aesthetic goals, provide recommendations and answer any and all questions you may have. On your day of surgery, you will need to have been fasting for at least 8 (eight) hours prior to your surgery. This includes avoiding any food or drink and generally nothing is allowed, not even water or medications.
