Upper Arm Lift/Brachioplasty Newport Beach

Upper Arm Lift/BrachioplastyIf you have loose flaps of stretched out skin on your upper arms, it may be time to consider getting an upper arm lift. At Pacific Plastic Surgery Institute, PC, we have provided numerous patients with excellent results from their upper arm lift in Newport Beach.

Good Candidates for an Upper Arm Lift

Depending on the amount of skin laxity and excess fatty tissue on the upper arm, either liposuction alone or in combination with an upper arm lift or brachioplasty can slim and recontour your upper arms to look and fit better in sleeveless and long-sleeved clothing, respectively. A significant amount of weight loss following weight loss surgery can create so much excess skin in the upper arms that arm flaps or “wings” develop. An upper arm lift is the only way to remove the excess skin and tissue.

Enhancing the Results of your Upper Arm Lift

Other body contouring surgery frequently performed after substantial weight loss include tummy tuck, lower body lift, and medial and lateral thigh lift. These surgeries can be combined into fewer surgeries, which are then staged 3-6 months apart.

Recovering from an Upper Arm Lift

There may be some swelling and bruising around the area following your upper arm lift in Newport Beach. Most patients will need a week or two of recovery before they can resume most of their normal activities. Strenuous activity will need to be avoided for longer.

Upper Arm Lift Cost

During your initial consultation, Dr. Chen can discuss the potential cost of your upper arm lift in Newport Beach. We do offer financing options for our patients.
