Arm Lift

Arm Lift in Oakland County With Dr. Andrew Lofman

For many people, the arms are an area of the body they wish to hide because of sagging, droopy skin and excess fat (also known as “batwings.”) For some, the arms can begin to display this appearance over time with age. Others are genetically predisposed to have loose arms. People who have lost a significant amount of weight can find it impossible to tighten the sagging skin on the arms. An arm lift in Michigan is a viable solution for this.

Also known as a brachioplasty, an arm lift is a is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces fat and droopy skin in the area of the upper arm. Further, it helps to smooth and tighten the supportive tissue of the arms for a more toned appearance. At Plastic Surgery of Michigan, we customize the treatment to the patient’s needs and involve both removal of excess skin and liposuction if needed.

What Can I Expect From An Armlift?

Dr. Lofman begins with a small incision on the back or side of the arm. If necessary, liposuction can strategically remove pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Next, he might remove extra skin and pull remaining skin into place before stitching back up. He performs the treatment under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable and overall takes a couple of hours.

Following your arm lift in Michigan, your arms will likely be bruised and swollen, which can last up to two weeks. Once healed, your arms will display a smoother, tighter, sleeker appearance and they will be more contoured.
