Arm Lift

 Arm Lift in Denver CO area

An arm lift, also called a brachioplasty, is a surgery designed to improve the appearance of the skin on the upper arm. The skin of the upper arm can begin to sag due to aging or genetics. People also often find that they are left with a great deal of excess skin hanging off the upper arms following substantial weight loss. If you are unhappy with sagging, excess skin on your upper arms, Denver area plastic surgeon Dr. Mouchantat can help tighten and tone your arms with an arm lift.

An arm lift by Dr. Richard Mouchantat:

  • Tightens the skin on the upper arm
  • Removes extra skin from the upper arm
  • Removes fat from the upper arm

What Is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that addresses excess or sagging skin on the upper arm. During an arm lift, the sagging skin is tightened by removing excess skin and tissue. Small amounts of fat can also be treated using liposuction.

Arm Lift Options

The arm lift procedure is done mainly to target excess skin on the upper arm. Sometimes liposuction can be performed during an arm lift to address excess fat in the area.

In order to perform an arm lift, Dr. Mouchantat must make an incision. Some patients will be able to have an incision placed under the arm, which may be less visible. Other patients will have an incision scar along the upper arm that may show when you wear more revealing clothing.

The Arm Lift Procedure

During an arm lift, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mouchantat will make an incision in the skin of the upper arm or under the arm. He will tighten the skin of the upper arm by lifting the skin until it has a firm, taut appearance. Excess fat may also be removed at this time using liposuction. Any excess skin on the upper arm will be removed, and the incisions will be closed.

Arm Lift Aftercare

After your arm lift procedure, you will need to rest for several days. You will be unable to lift objects or exercise strenuously for a time after your surgery. You should plan to start walking and moving around by the second day.

You will need to follow Dr. Mouchantat’s instructions about how to care for your incisions as they heal. A follow-up visit will be scheduled to have your sutures removed.
