Arm Lift in New York City for Toned Upper Arms
For many people, the upper arm is particularly prone to sagging and can become loose due to fluctuations in weight and the effects of time. Arm lift surgery, or brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to tighten skin and improve contour. Board-certified plastic surgeon Matthew Schulman, M.D., performs arm lift surgery at our New York City practice to help men and women give their upper arms a shapelier, more youthful appearance.
The Arm Lift Consultation
During your private consultation with Dr. Schulman, you will discuss the features of your arms that you find bothersome. Dr. Schulman will explain the techniques he uses to perform the arm lift procedure and determine which is right for you. Depending on your physique and goals, he may discuss his minimally invasive, short-scar arm lift procedure.
The Arm Lift Procedure
Dr. Schulman performs arm lift surgery in our fully accredited New York City surgical suite. He begins the procedure by creating an incision from the underarm area and along the underside of the arm to the elbow. Then, he removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin for a smoother appearance. Liposuction may also be employed to help achieve a shapely contour.
After the arm lift procedure, you will return home the same day. Dr. Schulman and his staff will help you throughout your recovery period. Most people return to nearly all normal activities, excluding heavy lifting, within a day or so following the procedure.
The results are visible immediately following brachioplasty and continue to improve over time. The benefits of arm lift surgery often last a lifetime.
