This loose skin can develop due to aging, weight fluctuations, or genetics, making it difficult to achieve the toned, sculpted arms you desire. Fortunately, arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, offers a transformative solution to this common concern.

At Moraitis Plastic Surgery, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Isidoros Moraitis has over 20 years of experience helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals. Dr. Moraitis and his team understand the impact that loose arm skin can have on self-confidence and are committed to providing personalized care and exceptional results.


What Is Arm Lift Surgery?

Arm lift surgery is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms, resulting in a more toned and defined appearance. During the procedure, Dr. Moraitis makes a discreet incision on the inside or back of the upper arm, depending on the extent of correction needed. He then carefully removes excess tissue, tightens the underlying supportive structures, and closes the incision.


Benefits of Arm Lift Surgery

Choosing to undergo arm lift surgery can have a significant impact on your appearance and self-esteem. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Elimination of excess skin and fat: Brachioplasty effectively removes loose, hanging skin and stubborn fat deposits, leaving you with smoother, firmer upper arms.
  • Improved arm contour: Arm lift surgery creates a more sculpted and defined arm contour by tightening the underlying muscles and tissues.
  • Enhanced self-confidence: Many patients experience a renewed sense of confidence in their appearance and enjoy wearing sleeveless clothing without hesitation.
  • Boosted overall body proportions: Arm lift surgery can help create a more balanced and proportionate silhouette.

Arm Lift Recovery and Results

Following arm lift surgery, you can expect some swelling and bruising, which is normal and will gradually subside. Dr. Moraitis will provide comprehensive post-operative instructions to promote a comfortable and successful recovery. Most patients can return to light activities within a week or two, while full recovery typically takes several months.

Your arm lift surgery results will be long-lasting, especially if you maintain a stable weight and healthy lifestyle. With your newfound confidence and beautifully sculpted arms, you’ll be able to embrace your favorite outfits and activities with renewed enthusiasm.
