The Arm Lift or brachioplasty is a popular procedure to remove excess fat in the upper arms and tighten the skin. While people are concerned about the appearance of their arms throughout the year, this procedure is especially popular leading up to the summer months. Those with sagging upper arms or “bat wings” can achieve slimmer, tighter arms through this procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Haque will develop a customized surgical plan to address your individual needs.  If you are not ready for the commitment of an arm lift and prefer something that is less invasive you may wish to consider BodyTite.

Upper Arm Liposuction

Fat contouring and liposuction can help you have slimmer and younger looking arms. Those who do not have overall excessive fat but have only certain areas with excess fat can greatly benefit from upper arm liposuction to improve contour and reduce sagging.

Who should get an arm lift / brachioplasty?

An arm lift / brachioplasty can be suitable for individuals who wish to improve the shape and contour of the upper arm. Those who have lost considerable weight such as bariatric surgery patients can greatly benefit from this procedure.

Recovery From Arm Lift / Brachioplasty

After your arm lift, you will need someone to drive you home.  Dr. Haque will explain the recovery protocol during your consultation.  In addition, you will have a follow up appointment with him shortly after your procedure.  Dr. Haque and the staff at Queen City Plastic Surgery will review post-operative instructions with you.  This includes wearing compression garments during the recovery period.  You will feel sore for some period of time but then will enjoy toned, tight arms.
