Arm Lift Philadelphia

Our bodies can change dramatically over time. Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging can transform our bodies so that we feel the need to seek surgery to make us feel attractive again. Helping you regain your confidence in your physical appearance is the goal at Marchant Plastic Surgery. Whether you need a tummy tuck for that post-pregnancy abdominal pouch or liposuction for persistent pockets of fat that just won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise, Dr. Eric A. Marchant is ready to help you fight your “battle of the bulge.”

Other names for Arm Lift:

Brachioplasty

Procedure Expectations:

Remove excess skin and fat from the upper arm.

Procedure Limitations:

Liposuction is sometimes performed at the same time as upper arm lift to enhance the results.

Surgical Time:

Two to three hours

Restrictions:

Brachioplasty patients should refrain from any aerobic activity and lifting over 10 lbs for four to six weeks. Most patients return to more sedentary jobs within a week.

In a person’s 30s and 40s, loose, sagging skin on the upper arms can become noticeable. Much of the time, lifting weights not does solve this problem as it is caused by excess skin in addition to fat in the arm region. An arm lift can be performed to remove the skin, which hangs from the upper arms, and improve a person’s appearance.

Liposuction may be combined with the excision to remove unwanted fat. The resulting scar will be hidden underneath your upper arm and will not extend past your elbow. After recovery, our patients are pleased with the contour of their upper arms and wear short-sleeved clothing with confidence.
