Arms marked by loose, drooping skin that jiggles when you wave can detract from both a fit overall appearance – and your confidence. In these cases, Dr. Farzaneh will commonly perform an arm lift to remove the problematic excess volume, creating beautiful new arms that are tight and toned.
What is an arm lift?
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgery designed to create slim, defined arms by permanently removing loose skin, eliminating excess fat and tightening the underlying tissue.
Dr. Farzaneh will typically perform an arm lift when the patient has acquired loose skin on the arms that is unresponsive to diet and exercise. This commonly occurs due to the natural aging process, as well as after pregnancy or substantial weight loss.
Why is an arm lift necessary?
Unfortunately, no amount of diet and exercise can address loose, redundant skin under the arms once it develops. Though lifting weights will certainly strengthen the underlying muscle, the extra skin will remain – detracting from an overall fit and toned appearance. When this occurs, a well-done lift is the only way to permanently tighten your arms and achieve the defined and sculpted look you desire.

I am 11 years gastric bypass post op and it was time to complete the transformation. Dr. Farzaneh met with me for over an hour and explained all of the risks due to the large volume of skin that had to be removed. I left his office with the advice to research my type of surgery before making a decision. My surgery was a success and I was back to work in 3 weeks. Dr. Farzaneh visited me at home the first two days due to the extreme heat and did not want me to come to the office. Dr. Farzaneh had changed my life. I am now finally comfortable in my own body and I am more agile in my activities and exercise routines. I can't thank Dr. Farzaneh enough for the care I received or for answering his cell phone at 11:30 pm to ease my concerns post surgery. I would and have highly recommend Dr. Farzaneh.

Are you a candidate for an arm lift?
As with all of his cosmetic procedures, Dr. Farzaneh determines arm lift candidacy on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of the patient’s cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. With that said, ideal candidates for this surgery are generally:
- In good overall health.
- At a relatively stable weight.
- Without any medical conditions that may impair healing or increase surgery risk.
- Realistic in their expectations of surgery.
In addition, ideal candidates should possess excess volume on the upper arms that they’d like to remove, as well as a decent amount of skin elasticity. For the longest-lasting and most successful results, patients should also be committed to leading a healthy lifestyle after surgery, complete with a proper diet and a regular exercise plan.
