Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)
Brachioplasty in Beverly Hills
Unfortunately, there are many women and men who are living with excess fat and sagging skin on their upper arms, unaware that there is a plastic surgery procedure that can help regain their confidence with the appearance of their arms. Arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) can be very rewarding for both patient and surgeon, because it is one of the less extensive procedures that can dramatically improve a patient’s entire look.
What Causes Flabby Arms?
Often, weight loss or the aging process can cause the skin and soft tissues to contract, which can create the flabby arm appearance. Sagging arms can make patients feel self-conscious or insecure with their body image.

Arm Lift Procedure
The surgery, which lasts several hours, is designed to elevate the sagging tissues of the arms while removing excess skin. An incision is made within the gentle creases of the shoulder or along the inside of the arm. The skin is elevated and the muscle is lifted. The skin is trimmed and the incision closed. Typically, there is only mild discomfort and normal activity can be resumed after several weeks.
Who Is A Good Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)?
Men and women who have excess skin hanging from their upper arms with a minimal amount of fat are optimal candidates for an arm lift procedure. Both weight gain and weight loss can affect the shape of one’s body as well as the amount of skin and fat present; which is why candidates are strongly encouraged to be at their ideal weight before choosing to undergo the surgery. By doing this, it helps Dr. Palmer create results that are aesthetically pleasing as well as proportional to the rest of your body. Candidates should be aware that an arm lift, or any procedure, should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise.
