Arm Lift Atlanta

Arm lift surgery in Atlanta can re-contour excess arm skin for firmer, natural-looking results! Loose, sagging skin of your upper arms is one of the most noticeable signs of aging. Regardless of how much you diet or exercise, these healthy habits cannot address lax skin. If you are bothered by drooping skin around the arms, then Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team may recommend an arm lift. Located in Atlanta, GA, Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery offers arm lift surgery to rejuvenate the arms.

WHAT IS ARM LIFT SURGERY?

Firm, well-defined arms can be symbolic of strength and youth. Over time, the soft tissue in the arm becomes lax and creates an unflattering appearance that no amount of exercise can improve. Genetics, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process can all contribute to sagging arms. Many people hide their arms because they are embarrassed by the hanging skin and fat. An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that can remove excess skin and fat deposits while addressing weakened tissues. Arm lift surgery can reshape the underlying portion of the upper arm from the armpit area to the elbow. At Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery, we perform arm lifts in Atlanta for patients who want to enhance and re-contour their arms for a more sculpted and toned appearance.*

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN ATLANTA ARM LIFT?*

Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team recommend arm lift surgery to men and women who want to:

  • Remove loose, sagging skin on their upper arms
  • Show the natural contours of the upper arm area
  • Feel more confident about wearing short-sleeved and sleeveless shirts

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR ARM LIFT SURGERY?

The best way to determine if an arm lift is right for you is to schedule a consultation at Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery. During your meeting, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will discuss your lifestyle, general health, and overall procedure goals. Our plastic surgeons will ask you why you want cosmetic surgery, and we will evaluate your expectations to determine if they can be achieved. We will examine your arms and record detailed measurements before taking photographs for your before and after pictures that will become a part of your medical record. You will be given pre and post-surgery instructions to follow to ensure optimal results.*

It is natural for your body to lose some firmness in the arms as you age. As a result, many patients turn to exercise to restore youthful arm contours. Although exercise can tone muscles, it cannot tighten your skin. If the undersides of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose due to excess skin, an arm lift may be right for you. The results of arm lift surgery can be long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and a proper fitness routine. In some cases, prior to brachioplasty, liposuction may be used to eliminate excess fat before the actual arm lift surgery is performed. Many patients choose to have other body sculpting procedures performed at the same time as their arm lift, including a tummy tuck or thigh lift.*

HOW IS ARM LIFT SURGERY PERFORMED?

Arm lift surgery is typically an outpatient procedure that takes one to two hours to perform, depending on the extent of your surgery. Your brachioplasty procedure may take longer if you are having additional procedures performed at the same time. Once you are comfortably anesthetized, your arm lift surgeon will make incisions on the inside or back of your arm that may span from the underarm to just above the elbow; this is based on the amount of excess skin that needs to be removed. For people who have lost a significant amount of weight, the incision may need to run from the elbow, along the armpit, and onto the side of the chest to successfully eliminate the desired amount of redundant skin. For patients with only a small amount of excess skin, a minimal incision arm lift procedure may be performed in which a few small incisions are made near the underarm area. Your arm lift surgeon will remove the fat deposits before trimming and tightening the excess skin. To complete your arm lift surgery, your surgeon will close your incisions(s) with sutures that, in most cases, will be absorbed by the body within one to two weeks.*

HOW MUCH DOES ARM LIFT SURGERY IN ATLANTA COST?

At Killingsworth Center for Plastic Surgery, we tailor arm lift surgery to the unique needs of each patient, so the cost varies. Some patients may need only minor corrections while others may need more extensive arm lift surgery. We advise you as to the cost of your procedure after your personal consultation, and you may pay by cash, personal check, credit card, CareCredit®, and Alphaeon® Credit financing.
