Reduce the Flab

Unsightly sagging skin on the upper arms are not just a result of aging. Often times, genetics or weight loss come into play. But even if the gym isn’t making a dent in reducing your arm flab, we most certainly can.

If you have unsightly sagging skin on the upper arms because of aging, genetics, or weight loss, then you may be a candidate for upper arm lift surgery. Also called brachioplasty, it is intended to reduce or eliminate excess skin from the upper arms.

An arm lift is usually done under general anesthesia. In order to remove the unwanted skin, an incision is required that runs from near the elbow into the armpit. The incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location (inner arm, toward the back), but some scarring will always be visible.

After an arm lift, the upper arms are either wrapped or placed in an elastic sleeve to reduce swelling. Initial healing usually occurs in 10 to 14 days. Sutures are usually removed within the first one to two weeks. Swelling and bruising gradually disappear over three to four weeks.

All swelling is gone in three to six months. The scars fade in six to 24 months depending on your skin. An additional procedure that may enhance the result is liposuction of the upper arms.
