Do you feel as though you simply cannot achieve toned arms, even with regular exercise? It may be time to consider an arm lift. Board-certified plastic surgeon Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., is proud to offer arm lifts to the residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida at his Aventura office.
What is an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?
An arm lift is a surgical body contouring procedure designed to treat sagging skin and loose tissue on the upper arm. The result is a firmer, smaller upper arm.
What is the Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure?
An arm lift is most commonly performed as an outpatient procedure. Typically, the procedure is done using general anesthesia. The arms are numbed for the procedure, and the patient should feel no pain. The surgery involves Dr. Rubinstein making an incision the length of the upper arm and removing the excess skin while pulling the remaining tissue taut. The entire process typically takes approximately four hours.
What are the Benefits to an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Procedure?
The patients of Dr. Rubinstein have been extremely happy with the results of his arm lift procedure. Patients report seeing firmer, tighter skin, and more defined upper arms. Additionally, patients report feeling more confident in sleeveless shirts and dresses. Patients are happy to wave sagging arm skin “goodbye” and have the skin on their arm stay put while doing so!
What Can I Expect Following an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?
Immediately after the procedure, some patients can experience some minor discomfort and swelling, but Dr. Rubinstein will prescribe medication as needed. The bandage is left on the suture for several days, and typically patients can return to work after a week of recovery. Patients see some results in terms of a smaller arm circumference and less skin immediately, but full results are observed during the months following.
Who is a Strong Candidate for an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?
A person who is not significantly overweight, but has a significant amount of excess skin on the upper arm may be a good candidate for brachioplasty. The excess skin is typically the result of drastic weight loss or the aging process and is completely resistant to exercise. If a patient is concerned primarily about the volume of fat in the arms, Dr. Rubinstein may recommend an alternative body contouring procedure at his office.
How Much Does an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Cost in Miami, FL?
Many former patients state that arm lifts were vital to their body confidence, but the surgery is not a necessary medical procedure. Insurance will not cover the procedure, so Dr. Rubinstein developed a financing
program for his patients.
