Brachioplasty / Arm Lift Gainesville, Florida

What is Brachioplasty (Arm Lift Surgery)?

Brachioplasty, more commonly referred to as an arm lift, is performed to improve the shape, firmness, and appearance of the upper arm. Not meant as a weight loss procedure, an arm lift will help eliminate sagging skin and fat deposits on the upper arm that do not respond to exercise or a healthy diet.

What Procedures Can You Combine with an Arm Lift?

Brachioplasty is sometimes performed in combination with liposuction or abdominoplasty in order to achieve a comprehensive enhancement of a patient’s body contour.

Am I a Candidate for Brachioplasty?

We will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for an arm lift during a consultation at our practice.

What Happens During an Arm Lift Procedure?

During the arm lift procedure, Dr. Gaines will make an incision along the inside of the arm that may extend from the underarm to the elbow. Working through this incision, fat deposits and excess skin are removed while the overlying skin is tightened. In cases in which excess fat rather than excess skin causes the sagging of the upper arms, only liposuction is required.

What is the Recovery Like After Brachioplasty?

When you visit our practice, we will be able to provide you with more in-depth post-surgical instructions following Brachioplasty. In general, it is recommended that patients refrain from strenuous physical activity, particularly activity that involves pushing or pulling, for one to two weeks. Contact sports and strenuous exercise should be avoided for approximately four weeks.
