Enhancing Natural Curves for Exceptional Beauty.

The Arm Lift, or Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure offered by our Board Certified Pittsburgh plastic surgeon. It lifts, tightens and re-contours the arm by removing excess skin and fat deposits. As we age, or if major weight loss occurs, the upper arm begins to sag due to the great affect of gravity, skin laxity, thinning skin, muscle and fat tissues. An Arm Lift does not affect muscle tone, and normal physical activity is not only possible but highly recommended once recovery is completed.

An Arm Lift can be performed in conjunction with liposuction of the upper arm and other body contouring procedures, but it not recommended for patients who have had mastectomy surgery. You will want to discuss the restrictions for an Arm Lift in detail with your Pittsburgh plastic surgeon if you have undergone a mastectomy.

People who have had major weight loss and post bariatric surgical patients can benefit greatly from an arm lift procedure as well as other procedures like a face lift, tummy tuck, thigh lift and body lift. Significant skin sagging can greatly affect your appearance after losing excessive weight. You should consult with our staff at our Pittsburgh plastic surgery center if you have any questions.

Arm Lift Combinations

Obalon

An arm lift procedure is often performed in conjunction with bariatric treatment or surgery. Along with proper diet and nutrition, the Obalon Balloon Weight Loss System can help to promote weight loss and maintain your desired body contour.

Liposuction

To tighten loose skin around the arm, liposuction is frequently used in tandem with an arm lift to re-contour the upper arm and remove unwanted fatty tissue from the area.

Others

Any significant weight loss or bariatric surgery will usually leave a patient with undesirable extra skin, which is why a thigh lift or even a tummy tuck can be ideal to combine with these treatments to create a more consistent body figure.
