Arm Lift

What is an Arm Lift?​

An Arm Lift, medically known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the upper arms. This procedure targets excess skin and fat, typically caused by aging, weight fluctuations, or genetics, resulting in sagging or “batwing” arms. During an arm lift, the surgeon makes incisions along the inner or back of the arms to remove excess tissue and tighten the remaining skin, resulting in a more toned and youthful arm contour. Arm lifts are popular among individuals seeking to achieve smoother, firmer arms and regain confidence in their appearance.

The Arm Lift Procedure

During the arm lift surgery, the surgeon makes incisions on the underside or back of the arms. This strategic placement enables them to access the target areas where excess tissue and fat reside. By meticulously removing these unwanted elements, the surgeon can then proceed to tighten the skin, ensuring a smoother and more contoured appearance. After the excess tissue is eliminated and the skin is tightened, the remaining skin is skillfully repositioned to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. This meticulous process results in arms that appear toned, sculpted, and beautifully contoured, boosting the patient’s confidence and overall satisfaction.

About Arm Lift

Arm Lift FAQ

A good candidate for an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is someone who has excess skin and fat in the upper arms, often due to aging, weight loss, or genetics. They should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure.
Choosing an arm lift in the Dominican Republic offers several advantages. With skilled surgeons like Dr. Yily de los Santos, patients can expect top-quality care, advanced techniques, and competitive pricing. Additionally, the country's beautiful surroundings provide a tranquil setting for recovery.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, typically involves removing excess skin, tightening underlying tissues, and sometimes using liposuction to contour the upper arms. These procedures aim to address sagging skin, reduce fat deposits, and improve arm contour, resulting in smoother, firmer arms with enhanced appearance and tone.
Recovery from an arm lift, or brachioplasty, varies depending on the extent of the procedure and individual healing factors. Generally, patients can expect to resume light activities within a week and gradually return to normal activities within 4 to 6 weeks, with full recovery taking several months.
Arm lift results can be long-lasting, but they are not entirely permanent. While the procedure effectively removes excess skin and fat, natural aging, fluctuations in weight, and lifestyle factors can affect the longevity of the results over time. Maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle can help prolong the outcome of the arm lift.
Yes, an arm lift can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction, breast lift, or tummy tuck, depending on the patient's individual needs and goals. Combining procedures can reduce overall recovery time and may achieve more comprehensive body contouring results.
The cost of an arm lift, or brachioplasty, varies based on factors such as the surgeon's expertise, geographic location, facility fees, and the extent of the procedure required. On average, the cost can range from $4,000 to $8,000, but it's essential to consult with a qualified surgeon for an accurate cost estimate based on individual needs.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is typically performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes incisions on the inner or back of the upper arm, then removes excess skin and fat. The underlying tissue is tightened, and the remaining skin is carefully re-draped and sutured for a smoother, more contoured appearance.
You can typically resume light exercise and activities within a few weeks after an arm lift, but it's essential to avoid strenuous activities that involve the arms for at least 4 to 6 weeks to allow for proper healing and minimize the risk of complications.
After an arm lift, important post-operative care includes wearing compression garments, avoiding strenuous activities, keeping incision sites clean, taking prescribed medications, attending follow-up appointments, maintaining a healthy diet, avoiding smoking, and gradually reintroducing physical activities under the surgeon's guidance for optimal healing and results.
Yes, there will be scarring after an arm lift, or brachioplasty, as incisions are made to remove excess skin and fat.
