Get Youthful, Sculpted Arms with Minimally Arm Lift Surgery in NYC

Brachioplasty typically involves making an incision along the inner or back of the upper arm to remove excess skin and fat. For those who want to avoid conventional surgery and scarring, our surgeons offerarm lifts using the following innovative arm liposuction techniques –

  • BodyTite: BodyTite™ is an RFAL (radiofrequency assisted liposuction) technology device. Along with removing excess fat, it firms and tightens the skin quickly – with minimum downtime and side effects. The BodyTite arm lift is recognized for its special ability to tighten the skin up to 40% more than conventional liposuction.
  • Smartlipo Triplex: Cynosure’s Smartlipo Triplex laser-assisted body sculpting device liquefies and removes unwanted fat to provide enhanced results.
  • VASERlipo: The VASERlipo system uses ultrasonic energy to selectively target the fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissues intact.

In contrast to conventional surgery, these minimally invasive techniques cause no visible scarring while delivering exceptional skin tightening benefits. They involve only small incisions which are placed in inconspicuous areas. Since these modalities need only local anesthesia, they avoid the typical risks associated with general anesthesia. You can see noticeable improvements shortly after the treatment and quickly resume your regular activities with minimal downtime.

Our skilled surgeon will help you choose the right arm lift option and provide a tailored solution to meet your specific needs, ensuring the most optimal results.

Scarless Arm Lift with BodyTite

Our surgeons perform scarless arm lift using the FDA approved BodyTite device. BodyTite technology uses radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) to simultaneously remove excess fat and tighten the skin. This minimally-invasive procedure requires only tiny incisions and leaves hardly any scars, leaving you with more subtle and aesthetically pleasing results. BodyTite technology allows for precise targeting of specific areas of concern. Whether you’re looking to address loose skin, excess fat, or a combination of both, the procedure can be customized to achieve your desired results, all without any visible scars.

Post-operative care following the procedure is crucial for a smooth and successful recovery. During brachioplasty recovery, you can expect some post-operative discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the arms, which is manageable with prescribed pain medication and proper rest. Our surgeons may recommend wearing compression garments and avoiding strenuous activities during the initial healing period. Most patients can resume light activities within a week or so, though it may take a few weeks for the swelling to subside and the final results to become apparent.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a good candidate for arm lift surgery?

A good candidate for arm lift surgery should have excess skin and, in some cases, excess fat in the upper arms, often due to aging or significant weight loss. They should be at a stable weight, in good overall health, and non-smokers to minimize risks. Realistic expectations and a commitment to post-operative care are also crucial.  A qualified plastic surgeon can evaluate you and determine your candidacy for the treatment.

How can I prepare for arm lift surgery?

Preparation includes discussing your medical history with your surgeon, quitting smoking if applicable, and following any preoperative instructions provided by your surgeon.

What is the recovery process like?

Recovery varies from person to person but typically involves temporary swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Patients are advised to wear compression garments and avoid strenuous activities during the initial healing period. Most can return to light activities within a week or so and see final results after several months.

Are the results permanent?

Arm lift can provide long-lasting results, but the natural aging process and significant weight fluctuations can impact outcomes. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help prolong the benefits of the procedure.
