Achieve Firm and Toned Arms With Brachioplasty Surgery

Are you tired of excess fat and loose skin under your upper arm? A brachioplasty is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery that is designed to give you firmer and more youthful appearing arms.

Brachioplasty, more commonly referred to as an arm lift, is a popular cosmetic surgery that is designed to tighten loose, sagging skin and remove excess fatty deposits in the upper arm. Patients often seek this body contouring procedure due to: 

  • Age
  • Weight loss
  • Pregnancy
  • The effects of gravity

Whether you opt for a brachioplasty for cosmetic reasons, or to improve your range of motion, this body contouring procedure can make you feel confident and happy in your own body again.

Whatever your aesthetic goals or body contouring needs, our team of Kelowna plastic surgeons can provide fully customized treatments for the safest and best results.

Brachioplasty: What You Need to Know About Arm Lifts

A brachioplasty is a body contouring procedure that aims to reduce sagging skin as well as excess fatty tissue under your upper arm. By tightening your skin and reducing the circumference of your upper arm, this procedure will dramatically improve the appearance and contour of your arms.

4 Reasons to Consider a Brachioplasty

A healthy diet and regular exercise can improve the muscle tone of your arm, but it cannot address loose skin that has lost its elasticity due to age or rapid weight loss. If you are struggling with loose skin under your upper arms, then a brachioplasty might be the right option for you.

An arm lift will:

  • Get rid of excess loose skin from the area between your underarm and elbow
  • Improve the contours of your arm and lead to smoother skin
  • Result in a smoother and more proportionate appearance
  • Reduce localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Combination Treatments: While an arm lift can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, it is sometimes combined with other body contouring treatments, such as liposuction, which aims to reduce surrounding fat.

Is a Brachioplasty Right For Me?

While a brachioplasty is a safe and effective procedure, it is not suitable for everyone. That’s why it’s so important to book a consultation with your plastic surgeon prior to undergoing any cosmetic surgery.

Typically, the best candidates for this procedure are those:

  • Who are within several pounds of their ideal weight
  • Whose weight doesn’t wildly fluctuate
  • Who don’t suffer from any medical conditions that may impair healing or increase surgical risks
  • Who do not smoke
  • Who have realistic expectations and a positive outlook

Risks of Brachioplasty

Just like with any surgery, an arm lift does come with some risks. Your plastic surgeon will discuss these with you and you will have to decide if these potential risks are acceptable. Some of these include:

  • Scarring
  • Bleeding and infection
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation in the treatment area
  • Damage to your nerves, blood vessels, and/or muscles in the treatment area
  • Increased risk of developing blood clots

During your consultation, you must ensure that you address any concerns and questions you have regarding your treatment with your plastic surgeon.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
