What is an Arm Lift?

Officially known as brachioplasty, an arm lift is a surgical procedure that reduces or eliminates sagging skin by:

• Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
• Tightens the underlying supportive tissue that shapes the upper arm
• Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity are all factors in upper arm sagging. You cannot remedy this with exercise.

Recovery for an Arm Lift

Dr. Suh’s team will apply medical dressings to your incisions. You may also need to wear an elastic bandage to minimize the swelling. If necessary, you may need a small, thin, subdermal tube to temporarily to drain any excess blood or fluid.

Dr. Suh will give you specific instructions for arm lift recovery including post-surgery care, medications, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to schedule a follow-up. Don’t forget to ask Dr. Suh specific questions about what you can expect during recovery, such as:

• Where will I be taken immediately after surgery?
• When will you remove my stitches?
• Will there be drains? For how long?
• When can I bathe or shower?
• When can I resume my normal daily routine?
