Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, FL
Not everyone is fortunate enough to have slender arms. If you are noticing excess skin around your arms and don’t know what to do, please contact Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach. For the last two decades, our team of male and female surgeons has been serving patients in Palm Springs, Jupiter, Wellington, Lake Worth, and West Palm Beach, FL. We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your aesthetic goals.
How Can an Arm Lift Help Me?
Excess skin around the arms can develop in those who have lost weight or whose arms are not toned due to age and genetics. If you are searching for slimmer, more toned arms, an arm lift may be exactly what you have been looking for.
Aging, genetics and weight fluctuation can all contribute to excess skin and fat on the upper arm. Arm lift surgery will help reshape the arms by removing this excess skin and fat. Instead of hiding your arms to the public, Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach wants you to feel comfortable and confident in your body.
We will create an entirely natural look and shape to your upper arms by removing the excess skin and tissue that is leaving you dissatisfied and causing saggy arms.
How are Arm Lift Candidates Assessed?
By now, you have decided an arm lift is right for you. We will first assess your arms to determine the best approach for your procedure. At Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach, some of our patients require only a slight lift, while other patients require a more extensive lift. Our team of male and female plastic surgeons use precise and careful incision placement to help maximize your results. During your arm lift consultation, we will discuss the arm lift recovery process and arm lift cost. We will also go over the two types of arm lift procedures.
What is a Mini Arm Lift?
If you are looking to remove a small amount of sagging skin close to your armpit, then a mini arm lift will help you achieve this result. A mini arm lift is a shorter surgery, will yield a quicker recovery, and leave a small scar. A standard brachioplasty is the correct procedure when you need to remove more extensive loose skin. Call us today to discuss the arm lift recovery process and the arm lift cost.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Brachioplasty?
The best way to know if you are a good candidate for a brachioplasty, or arm lift, is to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified surgeons. It is important to be at your ideal weight, in good health, and live a healthy lifestyle. You should discuss any medical concerns with your physician during your consultation including any medications that you are taking.
How Long is the Recovery Time for a Brachioplasty?
Length of your recovery will depend on if you are having a full arm lift or a mini arm lift. In general, patients can typically return to work a few days after your arm lift surgery, as long as your job does not put much strain on your body. After a week, it’s important to make sure that you are moving and encouraging circulation in the body for proper healing. It is important that you wait a minimum of six weeks until returning to strenuous activity.
What are the Benefits of an Arm Lift?
- Excess fat and skin is removed from the arms
- Your arms will be more toned and sculpted
- Your arms will look more proportional to your body
- Scars are fairly hidden
- Clothing will fit better
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your brachioplasty results will last as long as you maintain your weight. Weight gain, pregnancy, and general aging can have an effect on the results.
How Much Does a Brachioplasty Cost?
To determine the cost of your arm lift, we invite you to schedule a private consultation at our practice. During your consultation, we will assess your cosmetic goals in order to pursue a treatment plan that matches your unique needs. Then, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your treatment. At Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach, we offer a wide array of monthly payment options to help you reach your individual wellness, beauty, and performance goals. We accept major credit cards, and our financing plans include CareCredit® and Alphaeon® Credit.
Additional FAQs About Brachioplasty Surgery
Which Arm Lift Surgery is Best for Me?
During your consultation, one of our physicians at Plastic Surgery of Palm Beach will work with you to find out what technique will best suit your needs.
What Can I Expect From My Brachioplasty Surgery?
It is important to have realistic expectations when you are planning on having any cosmetic procedure. During your consultation, you should discuss your concerns and your goals with your surgeon. Overall, an arm lift surgery will remove excess skin and fat while tightening and toning the arms. There will be some downtime associated with the procedure, but every patient and procedure are unique, and your doctor will discuss all of the preparation and recovery instructions with you prior to your surgery. On the day of surgery, you should plan to have someone pick you up from the hospital and help you get settled at home. Resting during the first few days post-procedure will be necessary during the most sensitive period of recovery.
Will Arm Lift Surgery Be Painful?
In most cases, patients are put under sedation which prevents patients from feeling any pain during the procedure. After the procedure, you may have some tenderness and soreness in the areas that were worked on, but you will be prescribed medication that will help with this.
Will an Arm Lift Leave Scars?
There will be a scar, but it can be well hidden either in the inner arm, at the armpit, or at the back of the arm. These scars are minimal and will not be very noticeable. The scar will seem dark directly after surgery, but will lighten over time. A mini arm lift will yield a much smaller scar.
