Define Your Arms with Precision

If you are bothered by excess skin or fat on your upper arms, an arm lift may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Dr. Brian Shafa, our board-certified plastic surgeon, has extensive experience and expertise in performing arm lift procedures, and he is dedicated to helping you achieve the look you desire.

What is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift, also known as a Brachioplasty, is a procedure designed to reshape the upper arms by eliminating excess skin and fat. This helps to enhance the appearance of sagging or drooping arms, giving them a beautifully toned and sculpted look. Shaping your upper arms can enhance your overall silhouette, giving you a more balanced appearance and a confidence boost, helping you feel renewed and vibrant.

What are the Benefits of an Arm Lift?

An arm lift offers a range of transformative benefits, enhancing not just the contour and definition of your arms but also boosting your self-confidence and self-esteem. It allows you to confidently wear sleeveless or form-fitting clothing, revealing a more toned and sculpted appearance that complements your overall body proportions. With long-lasting results, an arm lift can significantly improve your physical appearance and enhance your sense of well-being.

Who is a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?

Typically, we’ve found the best candidates for this procedure are those who: 

  •   Have excess skin and fat on your upper arms that you wish to address
  •   Maintain good overall health, ensuring you're ready for the procedure
  •   Hold realistic expectations for the transformation an arm lift can provide
  •   Are dedicated to sustaining a stable weight to optimize your results
  •   Are a non-smoker, promoting better healing and long-term outcomes

What Does the Procedure Entail?

At your initial consultation at our Santa Monica office, Dr. Shafa will thoroughly assess your unique concerns and goals, crafting a personalized treatment plan tailored precisely to your needs. The arm lift procedure usually begins with incisions on the arms' inner or back. Excess skin and fat are meticulously removed through these incisions, while the underlying tissues are tightened to enhance tone and contour. Dr. Shafa employs advanced surgical methods designed to minimize scarring and achieve natural and harmonious results with your body's aesthetics.

Recovery and Results

After your arm lift procedure, you will need to rest and allow your body to heal. Dr. Shafa will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to help you navigate the recovery process. You can expect some swelling and bruising initially, but these will gradually subside, revealing the improved contours of your arms. As your arms heal, you'll gradually see noticeable improvements in their appearance, with final results becoming more visible in the weeks and months ahead.

Arm Lift FAQ

Will I have visible scars after an arm lift?

Dr. Shafa takes great care to minimize scarring and places incisions strategically to ensure they are as inconspicuous as possible. Over time, these barely-visible scars will fade.

What is the longevity of arm lift results?

Arm lift results are generally enduring, particularly with consistent weight maintenance and a healthy lifestyle. While aging may lead to minor changes over time, the benefits typically persist for the long term.
