With age and dramatic weight loss, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag or hang in folds. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting or exercise can remove the excess skin. However, an arm lift can remove the excess skin and fatty deposits to eliminate the flabby appearance and reshape the arm for a more toned and contoured appearance.

The Arm Lift Procedure

Brachioplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general or local anesthesia. Different surgical methods can be used to perform an arm lift, although most involve making an incision along the inner portion of the arm from the armpit to the elbow. The size of the incision is dependent on the amount and location of extra skin to be removed. After the incision is made, lax skin is removed, and excess fat is eliminated via liposuction. The remaining skin is tightened and contoured for a smooth appearance. Surgical scars are usually able to be concealed along the insides of the arms and are not noticeably visible when your arms are at your side.

What Is the Difference Between an Arm Lift and Liposuction?

While an arm lift and liposuction can both help to slim and sculpt the arms, they are different procedures. An arm lift removes loose, hanging skin that has lost its elasticity. During an arm lift, the arm contour is sculpted and tightened by removing sagging skin. This sagging skin can only be eliminated with a surgical procedure.

Liposuction removes unwanted fat pockets but does not address loose skin. This procedure eliminates unwanted fat in the arms to help slim and sculpt their appearance.

An arm lift and liposuction are often performed together to achieve optimum results. When performed as a combination treatment to address the upper arms, sagging skin is removed along with excess fat tissue to restore a firm, evenly contoured appearance.

What is a Mini Arm Lift?

A mini arm lift in Oregon can be performed for patients with a smaller amount of loose skin, usually located toward the armpit. Patients who have a small amount of skin redundancy on their upper arm generally don’t require a full arm lift. Instead, they are better served with a mini arm lift, or what is known as a crescent brachioplasty. During this procedure, a small crescent of skin is removed to eliminate the sagging effect and achieve a firmer contour. The scar is hidden in the armpit.
