What Is An Arm Lift?

As one of the area's highly-skilled, board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Rolando Morales, offers brachioplasty at his plastic surgery centers in Houston, TX. This procedure, also known as an arm lift, removes excess skin, sometimes called "bat wings," from the elbow to the axilla. It is a very powerful contouring procedure that significantly improves your ability to fit into clothing. Most men and women seek an arm lift after significant weight loss from diet and exercise, a gastric bypass or gastric sleeve procedure. Patients interested in an arm lift should be at their stabilized, ideal weight.

During the Surgery

An arm lift is performed under general anesthesia in a hospital or outpatient facility. The procedure could take between 1 and 2 hours to complete. The arm lift may be performed with other body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck or breast lift. However, there is a limit to how many procedures can be performed at once safely. The surgeon makes an ellipse excision of skin at the posterior medial aspect of the upper arm. If there is additional excess skin, an additional excision is made in the axilla. The scar is well hidden in the posterior medial aspect of the arm.

Arm Lift and Bra Line Lift After 170 Lb Weight Loss - Houston, TX - I finally decided to pull the trigger on this surgery after dealing with the excess skin and rashes for 4 years. I found Dr. Morales via extensive internet research and after a couple of other consultations I decided that he was my man.

Top Notch Experience - I have had an AMAZING experience getting brachioplasty done by Dr. Morales. He did a beautiful job on my arms, removing the excess skin I had. I feel so much more confident, and I LOVE shopping for sleeveless clothes now. Dr. Morales and his staff always make me feel welcome. He gives me attention and time at every appointment, and cares about how I'm recovering. This has been a life changing experience, and I'm grateful to have had such a talented surgeon do that for me.

My experience has been and continues to be nothing but the absolute best from Dr. Morales and his team. I have experienced extreme weight loss after bariatric surgery and was in search of someone to assist with a thigh lift, butt lift, full body lift, mons lift, arm lift, breast lift with augmentation and some lipo here and there. This has been all staged in a two part surgery and Dr. Morales has held my hand the entire time. I am currently finished with stage 1 and awaiting stage 2 and could not be happier with my results thus far.

Dr. Morales and his team are absolutely amazing! They are the perfect balance of professional and friendly, always available for questions, and supply you with everything you will need for recovery. I had an extended tummy tuck, breast lift with implants, liposuction of the back and sides, and an arm lift.. all after a 100 pound weight loss. My results are better than I could have imagined and I’m so thankful to have chosen Dr. Morales as my doctor. He gave me back my confidence, and I recommend him to anyone looking for the perfect plastic surgeon!

Recovery

Dressings are typically applied over the incisions and carefully wrapped in a supportive bandage. There are typically no sutures to remove because there are multiple layers of self-absorbing sutures below the skin. Small, outside suture tails are usually trimmed within 7-10 days. Strenuous activity and heavy lifting will need to be avoided for several months. It can take a few months for all of the swelling to clear up, and the scars will fade over time.

Expected Cost

The average cost for an arm lift procedure is between $5,500-$7,000. This price will increase if the surgery is combined with another body contouring procedure.
