Armlift Los Angeles - Brachioplasty
An upper arm lift, or brachioplasty, reduces excess sagging skin and fat from the upper arms that is due to aging or weight loss. Liposuction can be performed at the same time in order to maximize results.
The procedure is usually done under general anesthesia and takes about 3 hours. The location and length of the incision are dependent on the amount of skin to be removed. Through the incisions excess skin and fat are removed and deep tissues are tightened.
After the procedure, dressings and bandages may be applied to the incisions. Initial healing occurs in 10-14 days. Most bruising and swelling disappear in 3-4 weeks.
After the surgery, you will have slimmer, firmer and more youthful looking arms. Scars will be hidden in the arm pit or on the inside of the arm but will be visible.
Post-operative complications vary from patient to patient and can be reduced by closely following your surgeon’s instructions before and after the surgery.
