The goal of brachioplasty (arm lift) surgery is to restore the shape and firmness of the upper arms by removing sagging tissue and excess skin and fat to improve the overall appearance of the arms. Patients who might be interested in brachioplasty surgery are those who have upper arm skin that sags or causes irritation. Typically, brachioplasty surgery requires an incision on the inner part of the upper arm. Some patients may only need a smaller incision in the armpit and down the upper arm a few inches. During your consultation, Dr. Crofts will address your concerns and determine if brachioplasty surgery is right for you.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Crofts has performed hundreds of Brachioplasty procedures.

The area of the arm addressed with a brachioplasty, or arm lift surgery, is the upper arm. Typically an incision will run from the armpit to the elbow.
Typically an arm lift surgery is done by itself, however, in some cases patients may add on breast surgery or liposuction.
Anytime there is an incision made there is a scar formed. We offer scar management products and treatments such as the V-beam or Co2 laser as well as topical gels to improve the appearance of the incisions. Please contact our office for more information on scar management.
This depends on what a patient does for work. Patients can’t lift over 10 lbs or do any strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks. If your job requires you to lift over 10 lbs, then you will need 2-3 weeks off work. Patients can go back to sedentary work around 7 days.
