An arm lift, or brachioplasty, at Desired Beauty is a surgical procedure that reduces sagging, loose skin or stubborn fat on your upper arms. Arm lifts eliminate targeted fat pockets to offer you the tighter, more toned arms of your dreams.
Some of the numerous benefits arm lifts can offer include:
With age or weight loss, upper arms can sag or droop. If you’ve reached an ideal weight, eat healthily, and exercise regularly, and stubborn fat or skin lingers, an arm lift at Desired Beauty might be the solution for you.
To prepare for arm lift surgery, follow Dr. Kerendian’s pre-surgical instructions. He might ask you to complete a medical evaluation or lab tests. Avoid taking certain medications, stop smoking, and arrange for someone to drive you home after your scheduled surgery.
Ask them to stay with you at least the first night of surgery to assist with everyday tasks. Avoid eating or drinking anything the morning of surgery if you plan to receive general anesthesia.
Just before arm lift surgery, you’re given general anesthesia to put you under or intravenous sedation with local anesthesia. Dr. Kerendian makes an incision in your upper arms and removes excess skin and stubborn fat. He cuts out the tissue, uses liposuction, or both. Dr. Kerendian reshapes and tightens the remaining tissue and closes your incisions.
You'll notice immediate results after surgery, but you'll also experience swelling and some bruising. Dr. Kerendian places bandages, dressings, or wraps on your arms to minimize swelling and optimize your recovery.
You might also have thin tubes, or drains, in your arms temporarily to eliminate excess blood and other fluids. Take medications as prescribed, follow all post-surgical instructions, and attend follow-up appointments with Dr. Kerendian and his team.
Don’t live with excess skin or fat on your arms if it diminishes your confidence. Schedule an arm lift consultation with Desired Beauty by calling the office or requesting one online today.
