No More Flabby Arms


If you have excess skin in your arms, a Brachioplasty is an effective solution to make your arms look more toned and youthful. This procedure can improve your appearance, increase your self-confidence, and help you look and feel better about your body.

Flawless, Contoured Arms

A Brachioplasty, or arm lift, is a type of plastic surgery that eliminates extra skin and fat from your upper arms, leaving them looking toned and youthful.

Benefits of an Arm Lift

  • There are many benefits to undergoing this type of body contouring procedure:
  • Improves skin elasticity by eliminating loose skin and fat from the upper arms
  • Prevents rashes and irritation caused by the skin rubbing the on inner arms
  • Enhances confidence in your self-body image

What Should You Expect From Brachioplasty?

A Brachioplasty usually takes 2-4 hours to complete and is done with general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Bashore will make an incision in the back of your arm where excess skin and fat deposits need to be removed. Once the incisions have been made, your surgeon will remove any excess fat from the area, followed by the removal of the excess skin. Lastly, sutures will be used to close the incision, ultimately giving you a more body-contouring, toned look.

Everything You Need to Know About Recovery

You may experience some pain and discomfort after the procedure. Your doctor will provide you with medications to help manage this pain. You may also need to wear a compression garment for several weeks in order to reduce swelling and support your underarms as they heal. It is important to follow all your doctor’s instructions during the recovery process to ensure a safe and successful outcome.

Who Makes a Good Candidate?

A Brachioplasty is a great option for those who are at a stable weight and have excessive sagging arm skin or armpit tissue due to weight loss or aging. This procedure can help you regain your confidence and improve the overall appearance of your arms.
