When it comes to targeting areas of extra fat, the accumulation of fat underneath the upper arms can be challenging to correct with traditional methods such as diet and exercise. At Singhal Plastic Surgery, customized reshaping of the upper arm through minimal to more advanced arm lift procedures can restore a trimmer, more toned appearance to your upper arms.

Located in Kansas City, Missouri, Singhal Plastic Surgery is led by Dr. Virender Singhal. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate for arm lift surgery.

What is Arm Lift Surgery?

Also known as brachioplasty, arm lift surgery aims to achieve the following three goals:

  • Reduce excess sagging skin
  • Tighten and smooth underlying supportive tissue, giving better definition to the upper arm
  • Eliminating pockets of excess fat in the upper arm

At Singhal Plastic Surgery, we have multiple arm lift options available to accommodate your goals and preferences:

Non-incision Arm Lift:

In the presence of good skin tone, minimal saggy skin and localized fullness due to fat, a customized liposuction can achieve your desired results.

Minimal-Incision Arm Lift (Limited Brachioplasty):

A limited incision just inside the arm pit can achieve desired results for the tightening of loose skin in the upper arm.

Traditional Arm Lift (Full Brachioplasty):

Can achieve tighter, more youthful-looking upper arms by removing saggy skin that usually occurs after weight loss.

Excess fat in the upper arm region can occur for a number of reasons, including weight gain, heredity, and the natural aging process. Conventional weight loss methods often fall short in targeting this challenging area, but for many patients, arm lift surgery can help.

What Can I Expect During Arm Lift Surgery?

During arm lift surgery, there are various incision patterns depending on the location and amount of excess fat that needs to be removed. Doctor Singhal will discuss your incision options prior to surgery and create a pattern that leads to as little visible scarring as possible.

Once the incisions have been made, underlying tissues are tightened in order to restore definition and give the arms a fit, toned appearance. Permanent sutures may also be used to help maintain your new appearance. The skin is then re-draped over the arm, creating more aesthetically-pleasing contours.

As every patient is different, your surgical options will be discussed with Dr. Singhal during your consultation, and a unique procedure will be created and tailored to your specific needs and cosmetic goals.

Am I a Good Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery?

Men and women who are experiencing dissatisfaction or self-consciousness due to excess fat and sagging skin underneath the upper arm may be good candidates for arm lift surgery. Factors such as your overall health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations for surgery will be evaluated during your consultation in order to determine if arm lift surgery is right for you.

What is Recovery Like?

After surgery, a compression full arm vest will be placed on your arms to reduce swelling and protect your new arm contours. Doctor Singhal will advise you on how much time should be taken from work and normal activities in order to ensure proper healing, as well as any aftercare instructions you may need for your incision sites.
