Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

Losing a significant amount of weight and the natural aging process can lead to areas of loose skin and stubborn fat deposits. Exercising and consuming a balanced diet may create some improvement, but arm lift surgery produces reliable results when at-home contouring methods have been ineffective. Dr. Hotchandani offers arm lift surgery to patients who struggle with sagging skin and fat accumulation in the upper arm area. This procedure restores the arms to a firmer and more slender condition, allowing you to go sleeveless once again and show off your physique with confidence.

Ideal Candidates for Arm Lift Surgery

After evaluating your condition and cosmetic goals, Dr. Hotchandani will determine the best approach for your needs. Patients in good health who are at a stable weight may consider arm lift surgery as long as they have realistic expectations of their results. This procedure is ideal for patients with bothersome skin laxity and excess tissue in the upper arms that resist diet and exercise efforts.

Arm Lift Procedure

Arm lift surgery is an outpatient procedure performed at our private surgical facility in Green Bay, WI. It can be carried out with either local or general anesthesia for a comfortable and safe experience. Significant folds of excess skin in the upper arms can be removed through an incision created within the underarm or from the underarm to the elbow.
If appropriate, as determined by Dr. Hotchandani, patients can also choose from the following liposuction and skin tightening options to achieve the aesthetic they desire:

  • VASERlipo®: The VASERlipo® device delivers ultrasound energy to the target area to separate the fat from surrounding tissues, making it easier to remove with the suction cannula. Patients can expect minimal side effects and a fast recovery.
  • BodyTite™: With the use of radiofrequency energy, BodyTite™ helps sagging skin contract to enhance body contouring results. This technology helps reduce the risk of scarring and offers a less-invasive alternative to skin removal.
  • ReNUplasty®: Developed by Dr. Hotchandani, ReNUplasty® is a revolutionary body shaping method that combines VASERlipo® with Renuvion™. Patients can enjoy slimmer contours as well as tighter, more youthful skin.
