Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) in Hazleton & Pottsville

What is Brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure performed to sculpt and reshape the upper arm extending from the under arm region to the elbow.  This procedure is done in order to eliminate the excess, hanging skin that can droop downward when the arm is extended away from the body.   This excess tissue can result from extreme weight loss, sun damage or aging and may have a hereditary component.

How Does The Arm Lift Procedure Work?

Portrait of cheerful aged woman in fitness wear exercising with red dumbbells in park.Performed on an outpatient basis in a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgical Facility (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’), an arm lift involves the removal of excess, lax skin and associated fatty tissue.  Additionally, reduction in arm circumference and creation of a smooth contour transition with the adjacent areas is commonly achieved with liposuction techniques.  This procedure typically requires approximately 2 -3 hours of operative time and is comfortably performed under intravenous sedation supplemented with local anesthesia.  Optimal skin re-draping and contour recreation is facilitated by the use of a compression garment post-operatively.  For most individuals, return to routine pre-operative activities following an arm lift is possible in about 5 to 7 days.

What Are The Benefits of Brachioplasty?

Restoration of a smooth, tapering arm contour which is proportionate to the forearm dimensions can allow many individuals to return to confident use of sleeve-less and short sleeve garments, thereby enhancing self-confidence in their appearance.
