Arm Lift

Loose, excess skin, is something many women complain about as they age.At SCULPT Contemporary Cosmetic Surgery in Omaha, Nebraska, Dr. Stanley is proud to offer the Avelar technique for Brachioplasty, or armlift. During a brachioplasty, Dr. Stanley is able to surgically remove excess fat and skin from the upper arm in the most minimally invasive way possible. First, he performs tickle liposuction of the upper arm to remove excess fat. Then, he excises the extra skin on the upper arm and cosmetically stitches the new skin together, to create a thinner, more defined upper arm. The incision is made on the inside of the arm, in order to best conceal the cosmetic surgery.


Frequently Asked Questions About Brachioplasty

Q. Who is a good candidate for brachioplasty or arm lift?

A good candidate for brachioplasty is a male or female, age 18 to 65, who is in good health and has not only excess fat, but excess skin on the upper arm, and a desire to shape and tone that part of their body.

Q. What is the downtime for brachioplasty at SCULPT Contemporary Cosmetic Surgery?

The downtime for a brachioplasty, or arm lift at SCULPT is one week. While patients are up and moving the next day, Dr. Stanley suggests one week of no lifting for the best cosmetic surgical result.

Q. Will I have scars after a brachioplasty at SCULPT?

Yes, you will have a scar, since Dr. Stanley is surgically removing the skin on your upper arm; however, the scar is concealed on the inner part of the arm, so when your arms are at your side, you will not see it. For most patients, this is an acceptable option for getting rid of the excess skin.
