What is an arm lift?
Brachioplasty 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.

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?
Arm lift recovery will consist of rest and wearing a compression 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. Following Dr. Kaye’s post-surgical care directions is the way to minimize complications and achieve best arm lift results possible.
How much does an arm lift cost?
The price of your brachioplasty will be discussed during your consultation. The final arm lift cost depends on the techniques used, the amount of tissue removed, and many other factors. Financing is available through CareCredit and United Medical Resources.
