What are the Benefits of an Arm Lift?

This procedure, also known as a brachioplasty, is a great choice for those who want a tight, proportionate look. With an arm lift done by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Fugo, you can expect smooth, toned arms that match your body’s natural contour.

While an arm lift will require some recovery, there are several benefits you will notice after your procedure, including:

  • Less excess fat and skin: During the arm lift procedure, Dr. Fugo will remove fat from the underarm area that extends from near the armpit to the elbow. He will use liposuction to do so, or the fat and skin will be removed together with excision. The size and shape of the incision will depend on the amount of skin you need removed.
  • A defined tone and arm shape: By removing excess tissue and fat, Dr. Fugo can give your arm a more definitive shape and tone.
  • Better proportions and contours: As you age or lose weight, your skin starts to lose its elasticity, making it look stretched. An arm lift can help reduce this effect by tightening the underlying tissue of the arm. This leaves you with contoured arms that are proportionate with the rest of your body.

Once your arm lift procedure is complete, recovery is only a few weeks and is relatively straightforward. Dr. Fugo will walk you through the steps of the procedure and provide the instructions you need for recovery. While it may take up to a year for the incision site to lighten and fade, you will achieve smooth, natural upper arms that match your proportions and body weight.
