Fatty tissue on the upper arms can increase as we get older, affected by gravity, and is often most noticeable after dramatic weight loss. Genetics can also play a part, as supporting fat loses its structure over a lifetime of stretching.
Arm Lift Surgery in Montreal
An arm lift (a brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin, fat, and tissue from the upper arms via incisions placed along the inner arms or back of the upper arms. The procedure addresses excess drooping skin and fat to tighten and smooth the upper arms, frequently performed with liposuction to render the best results possible.
Find out if an arm lift is an option for you
Dr. Izadpanah will give you an honest assessment and let you know if you are a good candidate for an arm lift, but in general you should be in good overall health with no medical conditions that can impair healing, must be a nonsmoker or willing to quit smoking, and have realistic expectations.
You should also have significant sagging skin in the upper arms and be at your goal weight if you have been losing weight. In some cases, liposuction alone will suffice to achieve the desired outcome; Dr. Arashwill discuss this option with you.
Like any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with arm lift surgery. These can include (but are not limited to) bleeding, scarring, infection, fluid accumulation (seroma) , change in skin sensation, poor wound healing, revision surgery or persistent pain. Any additional risks will be discussed with Dr. Arash in consultation.
It is our goal at Dr. Arash Izadpanah’s clinic to ensure that your entire experience from the initial consultation to your recovery is as positive and comfortable as possible. Dr. Arash and the surgical coordinator will go over your post-operative instructions and recovery with you as it is essential for your arm lift recovery and results that you follow care guidelines closely.
You will need to wear compression garments to help with swelling and to compress the skin to help the body adapt, fluid retention and assist the healing process.
First 24 hours: Have someone in place to pick you up from your surgery and care for you at home
