Is an Arm Lift Right for You?

Beautiful,Young,Woman,In,Underwear,On,Color,Background.,Concept,OfAlso known as brachioplasty, an arm lift is a common procedure for people who have achieved major weight loss and are unhappy with the loose skin on their upper arms.

During your arm lift procedure, Dr. Charlotte Rhee will create an incision on your inner arm, the back of your arm, or through your underarm. Dr. Rhee will then work to trim the excess skin and fat on your arms to create a tighter, more toned appearance.

Who Is a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift Procedure?

Not everyone is a good candidate for an arm lift. Typically, people who are a good fit for the procedure do not have serious health conditions and have a noticeable amount of loose skin in their upper arms. It’s important that you’re at a stable and relatively healthy weight before surgery.

It’s also key to talk with Dr. Rhee about your expectations for the procedure. Having realistic expectations can help ensure you’ll be satisfied with the outcome of your procedure.

Arm Lift Recovery

Most people who have an arm lift see immediate improvement in the appearance of their arms. Typically, patients experience swelling and bruising after their procedure, and this can take up to two weeks to fade.

Dr. Rhee will provide you with specific care instructions for your incision area. She’ll likely recommend that you wear a compression garment on your arms to help relieve swelling and promote fast recovery.

If you are unsure how to care for your incision, notice any concerning effects, or have questions about the healing process, it’s important to contact Dr. Rhee for proper guidance.
