What is it?

Brachioplasty, more commonly known as an arm lift, is a procedure that is performed to remove excess, loose skin and fat from the upper arm. The goal is to produce a normally shaped arm that is in proportion to the individual’s body size and shape. In a way it is very similar in concept to our Lipoabdominoplasty procedure which begins with liposuction under Tumescent Anesthesia and then removes the excess skin to tighten and re-contour the arm (or tummy).

Is a brachioplasty right for me?

Brachioplasty may be the right procedure for a patient who will be left with excessive skin that hangs or moves, even after liposuction. If the tissue excess is mostly fat and not lose or stretched out skin liposuction alone may be sufficient.

What will Dr. Kaye and I discuss during my consultation?

During your consultation for a Brachioplasty with Dr. Kaye will discuss your goals and the options that are available to reach them. A healthy person, with realistic goals who is well informed is the best candidate. Dr. Kaye will answer your questions directly in an effort to help you reach your goals.

How long is the procedure?

The procedure is performed at The Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky, as an outpatient in this IMQ certified facility. This is done as an outpatient in a few hours and then the patient is discharged home for recovery with a caretaker.

How long will recovery take?

Recovery will consist of rest and wearing a compression type garment for the first week or so. After a return visit, the garment will need to be worn for about 4 weeks and upper body exercise should be kept to a minimum for 6 weeks, although cardio workouts and normal daily activities can resume at about 2 weeks in most people.
