What Is an ARM Lift and What Can It Accomplish?

Dr. Jessica Belz of San Antonio, TX is a plastic surgeon who understands that both men and women may have areas of their body that they are embarrassed to show or that impact their self-confidence. One area that is a common complaint is that of the upper arms. Patients may notice excess sagging skin in this area that can droop. Many patients avoid wearing sleeveless or short-sleeved tops because of this excess skin. With plastic surgery, specifically an arm lift, patients can improve this problem area and feel less self-conscious about the appearance.

What is an arm lift?

An arm lift is a specialized procedure that is used to address excess fat or skin in the upper arm area. Also known as a brachioplasty, this treatment:

  • Reduces excess skin that may sag or droop downward
  • Tighten the supportive tissues
  • Smooths the tissues to improve arm definition and shape
  • Reduces localized areas of fat on the upper arm

What causes sagging skin and excess fat in the upper arms?

There are several reasons why a patient may be dealing with problems of the upper arm area. Sometimes, patients fluctuate in weight dramatically, especially if they are overweight and bring their weight down significantly. This can often lead to excess skin from being stretched. The upper arm area is often a problem for patients who are aging or those with genetic predisposition to excess skin and fat. When patients have improved their body, they want to show off their hard work—which is where a brachioplasty can be beneficial.

Is a brachioplasty right for me?

Dr. Jessica Belz encourages patients to request a consultation and initial evaluation to determine if this or other procedures can be used to enhance one’s appearance and boost their self-confidence.
