What is brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty (arm lift) surgery is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of flabby upper arms. If you are unhappy with sagging skin or unsightly bulges around your upper arms, then arm lift surgery is a great way to get firmer, shapely arms. Arm lift surgery can easily be combined with liposuction to remove isolated fat in your upper arms.

Am I a good arm lift candidate?

Men and women alike can be great arm lift candidates. It may be the right procedure for you if you want to reduce and reshape:

  • Skin that sags and droops from your upper arms.
  • Excess fat deposits in your upper arms.
  • Loose, bulging supportive tissue in the upper arms.

The dreaded "bat-wing" arm appearance is a common result of aging or weight loss. The only way to know if you are a proper surgical candidate is to visit our office for your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Gonyon.

What is the recovery process like?

Our plastic surgeon and our staff are fully committed to offering you the most advanced care in a safe, state-of-the-art surgical setting. In addition, we want to do everything we can to make sure your recovery after surgery is as successful and convenient as possible. You will need to stay home from work for several days or longer, and depending on the types of exercise you enjoy, we'll let you know when you can safely return to those activities.

How much does brachioplasty cost?

The cost of this procedures varies by plastic surgeon, region, and the specifics of your surgery. Our experienced office staff will provide you with an estimate and then inform you of all of your payment options, including applying for financing.

How long will the results last?

Results of this procedure are long lasting. The sagging skin is permanently removed, so you can enjoy toned, firm arms for many years to come. It is possible to notice a return to sagging as you age, which is a normal effect of the aging process. It's also possible for your arms to become a little flabby again if you gain a significant amount of weight.
