Elevate Your Confidence

Due to weight loss or the natural aging process, it's common for the skin under your upper arms to start sagging, leading to self-consciousness about showing your bare arms in sleeveless apparel. In sunny Florida, this can be quite uncomfortable. However, Dr. Lisa J. Learn and her team understand how this feels so we offer a solution through brachioplasty, commonly known as an arm lift.

Unfortunately, exercise alone can't address sagging underarm skin. Dr. Learn can help by removing excess skin and fat, resulting in a firmer, more toned appearance. A brachioplasty can tighten and smooth underlying supportive tissues as well and is often combined with liposuction for an even slimmer appearance.

Brachioplasty Procedures Can Be Tailored Individually

There are different levels of the procedure depending on the amount of extra skin needing to be excised and the type of skin you have. These different approaches allow Dr. Learn to tailor the arm lift procedure to the patient's specific needs, ensuring optimal results and patient satisfaction.

Typically, an incision is made in the armpit and upper arm, but in extreme cases, they may extend to the elbow. Excess skin and fat are removed, and absorbable sutures are put in place below the skin’s surface. This is all done under general anesthesia and with the goal of making scars as inconspicuous as possible.

Arm Lift Procedures

Traditional Brachioplasty

This is the standard arm lift procedure. It involves an incision along the inner arm, extending from the elbow to the armpit. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the underlying tissues are tightened. This procedure is ideal for moderate to severe sagging.

Mini Brachioplasty

For milder cases of sagging skin, a smaller incision is made in the armpit area, and only a portion of excess skin is removed. This results in shorter scars and less recovery time.

Additional Techniques

  • Liposuction for Arm Contouring: Liposuction can be combined with an arm lift to remove excess fat from the upper arms, creating a more sculpted appearance.
  • Armpit Fat Reduction: Also known as "axillary fat," this technique targets excess fat in the armpit area. Liposuction is used to remove fat deposits, creating a smoother transition between the arms and the torso while enhancing the overall arm aesthetics.
  • Bra Line Fat Reduction: This technique involves targeting excess fat deposits in the area where the upper arms meet the torso, commonly referred to as the "bra bulge." Liposuction is used to eliminate these unwanted fat pockets.
  • Arm Lift with Tissue Tightening: In addition to skin and fat removal, some arm lift procedures also focus on tightening the underlying supportive tissues, enhancing the overall arm contour.

What To Expect After Your Arm Lift Surgery

You can anticipate some bruising and soreness after the procedure, and you may require pain medication for relief during the healing process. Typically, discomfort should start to diminish within 48 hours post-surgery. It's advisable to sleep with your arms elevated on pillows for approximately two weeks and avoid heavy lifting or excessive physical activity. Adhering to the provided care instructions diligently will contribute to a faster and more successful recovery. Soon enough, you'll be able to show off those shapely and youthful-looking upper arms!

Be Sleeveless And Self-Confident

Once you've recovered, you'll regain self-confidence, able to flaunt your arms without hesitation. You'll soon enjoy the freedom of wearing sleeveless attire and waving with pride. While a brief recovery period is expected with some discomfort and swelling, following post-surgery instructions will lead to a swift and successful recovery. Say goodbye to saggy arms and hello to newfound confidence with Dr. Learn's expertise.
