Countless men and women are seeking cosmetic solutions to reduce unwanted sagging or excessive skin found in their upper arm area. Thanks to the incredible skill of Las Vegas, NV Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank L. Stile, and modern surgical excision techniques, an arm lift surgery can be performed to bring great improvement.
Typically, those who are seeking arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) have recently lost a lot of weight or simply want to improve the definition in their upper arms. Sophisticated tightening techniques will be used to improve loose skin and liposuction may also be used to reduce unwanted fat pockets.
At Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, all our patients receive a thorough consultation to determine their treatment plan.
After being put under general anesthesia, the incision for brachioplasty is made from the elbow to the upper arm. Loose skin will be trimmed away and the underlying tissue will be pulled tight. This surgery takes about 2 hours and there is usually no need for an overnight stay.
For best results, an arm lift may require liposuction of the fat deposits within the upper arm to make them look slim and trim. The skin tightening may not be enough to have taut arms. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss the best course of action given your skin’s health and condition.
Keep in mind that some of the stretch marks will also be taken with the skin, however, if weight is regained, it could damage the treated area. An arm lift gives patients the opportunity to have more defined arms for years to come.
Take the first step. Get your questions answered and find out which treatment option is best for your concerns by meeting with Dr. Frank Stile at Stile Aesthetics for an in-person consultation.

When diet and exercise fail to tone the upper arm, a trusted plastic surgeon may create outstanding results. Ideal candidates have:
After a brachioplasty, patients report slimmer, more attractive arms. They enjoy less loose skin in the arm area and an overall toned appearance. Many of them wear sleeveless shirts and dresses in complete confidence.
Patients should be prepared for temporary swelling and bruising after the surgery. To promote healthy healing and blood circulation, the arms should be kept elevated. Patients can usually return to normal activities in about 2 weeks with full exercise at 4 weeks.
