What is an Arm Lift?
Arm lift, referred to as a brachioplasty in medical terms, is a surgical procedure that targets the excess skin and fat in your upper arms. The sagging skin in this region of your body can be caused from a variety of processes, including weight loss, natural aging, pregnancy, and more. Targeting specific areas and spot reduction of fat is a difficult process, so even if you lose weight, you might be dealing with the fat in these areas. The procedure removes the excess tissue specifically in your arms.
How Much Does an Arm Lift Cost?
An arm lift is an effective surgical procedure, but the cost of this procedure must be individualized to your needs and goals. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we strive to keep our procedures as affordable as possible. We accept most insurances and all major credit cards in addition to cash, checks, and money orders. We also offer financing options through CareCredit®, and are happy to provide full details on the cost of arm lifts in Lake Jackson, TX, during your one-on-one consultation.
Am I a Candidate for an Arm Lift in Houston, Texas?
An arm lift is great for anyone who has been unable to lose the fat in their upper arms. If you notice that you are experiencing sagging or droopy skin specifically in this region, an arm lift can help contour your arms.
How is an Arm Lift Performed?
Arm lifts in Houston and Lake Jackson involve multiple incisions, which are often made in a zigzag pattern on the inner arm. Liposuction is sometimes used once the incisions are made to remove excess fat. Otherwise, the excess skin is removed, and sutures are placed. The treated area(s) are then covered in a dressing and bandages.
What is Recovery Like After an Arm Lift?
Recovery after an arm lift is not as extensive as other surgeries. You might notice some mild bruising and swelling. Even so, because your arms have been treated, you will have to limit the use of your arms to help with the recovery process for around two weeks. This means you might be restricted from certain daily activities—including driving—during this time. Additionally, you will have a scar on the inside of your arm after the procedure.
How Long Will My Arm Lift Results Last?
Arm lift results last for many years, up to a lifetime. To maintain results for a longer period of time, we recommend that you also have a consistent exercise program with proper nutrition.
