Achieve Lean, Toned Upper Arms

With age, the skin loses its elasticity. This can lead to sagging skin in many areas, including the upper arms. Those who have lost a substantial amount of weight may also notice excess skin in this area. An arm lift (brachioplasty) by Dr. Suzanne Yee in Little Rock, AR, can create a toned appearance in your upper arms by removing excess skin and fat tissue, and artfully tightening the remaining tissue.  Dr. Yee accepts CareCredit® payment plans to help you budget for this treatment.

To qualify for an arm lift procedure, patients should be in good general health and free of any medical conditions that would make surgery under anesthesia unsafe. Those considering this procedure should also be non-smokers, as tobacco use seriously impedes the body’s ability to heal. In addition, patients should have a full understanding of the procedure and reasonable expectations. Optimal results require sufficient skin elasticity, which will be assessed during your consultation.

If you are undergoing arm lift surgery after weight loss, it is important to understand that the results of your procedure can be affected by weight fluctuations. Therefore, be sure you are at a stable weight before pursuing any cosmetic surgery.

Before and After

An arm lift can eliminate sagging skin and excess fat to help you achieve a toned, fit appearance.

Arm Lift Procedure

Patients who undergo an arm lift at our practice can expect the procedure to last about one to two hours. The steps involved include:

  • Anesthesia: Before beginning your procedure, anesthesia will be administered to keep you comfortable throughout your treatment. 
  • Incisions: Once you are comfortable, Dr. Yee will create incisions on the undersides of your arms. The size and pattern of the incisions will depend on your specific needs. Dr. Yee will strategically place the incisions to minimize post-operative scarring. 
  • Tissue Removal: Next, Dr. Yee will trim away excess tissue and perform any necessary liposuction to eliminate fat deposits.
  • Sutures: Finally, the remaining skin is repositioned and the incisions are closed with sutures. 

Recovery and Results

Immediately following arm lift surgery, patients can expect some degree of discomfort, swelling, and bruising. These side effects can be managed with a combination of prescription medications and over-the-counter pain relievers. Keeping your arms elevated will help reduce inflammation, as well. You will be provided with a detailed list of post-operative guidelines, which should be followed closely to ensure a successful recovery. These instructions will also help you properly care for your incisions, bandages, and surgical drains.

Most patients will need to take two to three weeks off from work. In addition, all strenuous activity should be avoided for about one week. However, light walking is encouraged, as it will help promote healing and prevent blood clots. 

The appearance of your arms will continue to improve as the healing continues, with results becoming apparent about two to three months after your surgery. It may take up to a year to completely heal.
