Through the aging process, the skin loses elasticity and may begin to sag in various areas of the body. As many people know from experience, one area that can show age prematurely and quite prominently is the arms.

In the arms, loss of elasticity can result in a flap of excess skin and fat that can cause many patients frustration and lowered self-esteem. Sagging, drooping skin on the arms may also be a problem for those who have lost a significant amount of weight but whose skin lacks elasticity to conform to the arms’ new contour. For these complaints and others, an arm lift in Las Vegas may be a powerful and lasting solution.

Patients in the Las Vegas area are welcome to join us at Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery for a personal, comprehensive consultation with Dr. Engineer. There, he will spend time getting to know and understand your personal goals and endeavor to create the safest, most effective, and most appropriate surgical plan for your unique objectives.

What to expect from brachioplasty in Las Vegas

An arm lift’s primary goal is to remove excess, sagging skin from the underside of the arms and create an overall improved contour of the upper arms. The expected result is a more youthful, toned, and proportional look for the arms. Your full, transformative results will not be fully apparent until after your recovery, but the smoother, leaner contour will be immediately visible.

Brachioplasty is not a long-term weight loss solution and best results will be seen by those who have maintained a healthy weight for some time. It is, however, a very popular procedure for those who have lost a significant amount of weight and struggle with excess sagging skin on the arms, or those who have developed a flap of excess skin on the underside of the arms due to aging or genetics.

Fat removal is not the chief function of an arm lift, but liposuction may be performed in conjunction with your arm lift in Las Vegas to better attain your objectives. Dr. Engineer will always take the time to understand the full scope of your goals, help you to understand realistic expectations of your chosen procedure or procedures, and develop an appropriate surgical plan to make the best effort to achieve your goals.

Arm Lift FAQ

How long does the procedure take?

Each client will require a different degree of skin excision and contour reshaping, so treatment time varies. An arm lift typically takes 1-2 hours, however. If you’ve experienced a major weight loss recently, the procedure may take more time, as there is more skin to remove. If you are combining your arm lift with another cosmetic procedure such as a thigh lift or body lift, this will extend your treatment time as well. Brachioplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure, so you will not need to stay overnight.

What are the risks involved with an arm lift?

Dr. Engineer’s meticulous attention to detail and precision-based approach naturally help to minimize surgical risks. However, there are always some risks involved anytime a surgery is performed. With an arm lift, these include excess swelling, infection, seroma, asymmetry, temporary numbness, poor wound healing, and a poor cosmetic result. The doctor will discuss the benefits and risks of an arm lift with you in more depth during your private consultation.

How long will my arm lift results last?

As long as you avoid significant weight gain or weight loss and you continue to exercise and eat a healthy diet, your arm lift results should last for years to come. The body will continue to age, however, so some clients find they may need to undergo the procedure again at a later date.

When can I exercise after my treatment?

Many clients pursuing an arm lift are active, busy individuals who can’t wait to get back to their gym routine. It’s important that you rest, however, to ensure that the proper healing occurs and you don’t compromise your aesthetic results by trying to exercise too quickly. Dr. Engineer suggests that you wait 4-6 weeks before resuming any rigorous activities. He will see you for regular follow-up visits and will give you specific recommendations based on your body.

Is there any scarring with brachioplasty?

Any time an incision is made, there will be a scar. However, your incisions will slowly fade over time and become virtually undetectable. You should take care to avoid direct sunlight, as this can make your scars look darker. We can also provide you with medical-grade scar creams.

Can I combine an arm lift with any other procedures?

Yes! An arm lift can be combined with other body sculpting treatments to comprehensively slim, sculpt, and streamline the torso. An arm lift can be accompanied by liposuction, a tummy tuck, breast surgery, a thigh lift, or a buttock lift.
