Brachiaplasty, an arm lift or reduction, is designed to remove excess fat or loose skin from your upper arm area. The procedure is personally crafted for your body to improve the aesthetics of the shape, contours and size of your upper arm area.

What Can Brachiaplasty Do For You?

Many women have worked hard to achieve their weight loss goals. Nevertheless, even after shedding pounds, loose skin can remain behind, especially in areas like the upper arms. Sometimes, this loose skin can also make it difficult to find shirts and other clothing that properly fit both your chest and your arms.

Brachiaplasty can also work to reduce excess fat that can accumulate in areas like the upper arms with age. When you’re generally happy with your body size and shape but want to change the look of your arms, brachiaplasty could also be an option for you.

Arm lift procedures are one of the procedures that can most effectively reduce the appearance of aging. In addition to removing excess skin and fat, a brachiaplasty procedure can help to improve the shape of the underlying support tissue and restore a smoother contour to the skin. This procedure can be an excellent choice for healthy people not planning future serious weight loss, at any age in life.

Frequently Asked Questions about Brachiaplasty

How is a brachiaplasty procedure performed?

In general, brachiaplasty is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on your choices and the advice of Dr. Parakh, the procedure can be performed in several ways. An incision is made on the lower side of the arm, and the procedure may require a longer or shorter incision, depending on the location of excess fat or tissue. This incision can often be concealed in a natural crease of the arm.


How long will the results last?

Brachiaplasty is a permanent cosmetic procedure that will change the appearance and tone of your upper arms. As long as you maintain a relatively stable weight, the results of your brachiaplasty are long-lasting. This procedure should be performed when you are at or within 20 pounds of your ideal weight or the weight which you intend to maintain to avoid disruption caused by major weight gain or loss.


How is the recovery process after brachiaplasty?

After a brachiaplasty, you are likely to experience some discomfort, swelling and pain. These symptoms should subside in the first two to three weeks following the procedure. Scars will also soften and then fade in the months after your procedure. You should be able to resume your daily routine, including working, within two weeks, but it is best to wait four to six weeks to resume any strenuous exercise.

I couldn’t be happier with my results!

I had my mommy makeover (tummy tuck with lipo of flanks & breast lift) in May of 2017. I’m 3 months post op and I can honestly say this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. My review is on real self for anyone who wants more info or photos. From the beginning Dr. Parakh was patient, knowledgeable, understanding & accommodating. My surgery was 8 hours and I spent one night at Hackensack Hospital. Dr. Parakh came to the hospital to see me the next morning and has always been available (even by personal text) to answer any questions and concerns I have had. Everything went really smoothly and I couldn’t be happier with my results! If you are considering a mommy makeover or any surgery go see Dr. Parakh. This is a truly life changing experience and she’s the best one to take the journey with! I feel 21 again 🙂 ~S.S.
