What to Expect Before, During, and After Arm Lift Surgery

Scottsdale Plastic Surgeon

If you have sagging skin under your arms, arm lift surgery could be the procedure for you. During this plastic surgery, which is also known as brachioplasty, excess skin and pockets of fat are removed so that your arms look more toned. If you’re considering this procedure, here is a look at what you can expect before, during, and after the surgery.

Before Your Arm Lift
Before you have an arm lift, you will have a consultation with Dr Jennifer Geoghegan, who will determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. She will review your current medications and any conditions you have that could interfere with the surgery or your recovery. You may need to have blood work or other lab tests performed. At this stage, it is also important to review your treatment goals to make sure an arm lift is the right procedure to achieve the results you want.

During Your Arm Lift
Arm lift surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. After you receive anesthesia, Dr Geoghegan will make an incision to remove the excess skin and fat deposits. Next, she will use internal sutures to tighten supportive tissue. Finally, the incision is closed with stitches that will be absorbed by the body during your recovery. In some cases, liposuction is combined with arm lift surgery to address larger areas of fat.

After Your Arm Lift
Most arm lift patients return home the same day as their surgeries, though patients with longer procedures may stay in the hospital overnight. You will have dressings over your incision and your arms may be wrapped in elastic bandages. Dr Geoghegan will tell you how to change your bandages and dressings. Most patients can return to work within one to two weeks, but must avoid strenuous activity for three weeks.

Arm lift surgery is just one cosmetic procedure offered by Scottsdale plastic surgery practice Oasis Plastic Surgery. Find out how we can help you feel like your best self with safe and effective surgeries and anti-aging treatments by calling (480) 264-6428.
