Slimmer, more attractive arms after aging, or weight loss.
Saggy arm skin makes it difficult to wear your preferred style of clothing. Certain shirts and blouses can draw attention to the upper arms. Having loose arm skin or an upper arm bulge can also make the upper body appear broader than you would like. At Premier Plastic Surgery Center, arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, has given many patients their confidence back.
Even waving hello can be a source of embarrassment, as the extra arm skin hangs down where it shouldn’t. If you have been considering arm lift surgery, we invite you to meet Charlotte plastic surgeon Dr. Ferrari. We strive to deliver the best arm lift Charlotte has to offer, so contact us to learn more.
At our office in Charlotte arm lift is used as a surgery that removes loose skin and fat on the upper arms, helping our patients achieve a noticeably slimmer appearance to the upper body. Using a vertical incision, the loose, hanging arm skin is carefully removed.
Fat tissue that is attached to the skin will be removed along with it. The arm lift procedure at Premier Plastic Surgery can be combined with arm liposuction to further sculpt and refine upper arm fat for a slimmer, more shapely appearance.
Loose skin on the upper arms is a common cosmetic concern. Loss of elasticity can occur due to aging. The skin can also stretch out from gaining, then losing, weight after a diet, exercise, or weight loss surgery.
If you are self-conscious about the way your upper arms look, it might be time to consider arm lift surgery. The ideal candidate is someone that has reached a healthy adult weight and still suffers from sagging upper arm skin. Patients should be in good overall health and will be asked to quit nicotine use prior to surgery.
When you meet Dr. Ferrari for an arm lift consultation, you may be asked about your relevant medical history. Older patients and those with certain health conditions may need medical clearance from a primary care physician before getting the procedure. This ensures you can be placed under anesthesia safely and have a good recovery.

Arm lift surgery is less painful than other kinds of cosmetic body contouring procedures. The healing time is considerably easier than a tummy tuck or belt lipectomy, for example. Prescription medication may be prescribed to ease the pain as needed. It is important to give the upper arms time to heal.
Therefore, it is recommended to avoid lifting or carrying heavy objects (such as bags of groceries) for at least 2-4 weeks. Driving after an arm lift can normally resume 10-14 days after surgery. For sedentary jobs such as office work, most patients request 10-14 days off work for an arm lift. Patients with more physically demanding careers may require 3-4 weeks to recover before returning to work.
