Many people suffer from unsightly skin folds hanging from their arms. This can interfere with your ability to fit into sleeved tops as well as cause underarm skin rashes and irritation. Brachioplasty, also known as arm lift or arm tuck is a procedure designed to remove sagging skin folds of the upper arm.* Brachioplasty can help restore your ability to wear blouses and shirts comfortably, to show your arms without feeling self-conscious, and to conduct your life with greater freedom and confidence.*

Treatment

The type of brachioplasty performed by Dr. Dorfman depends upon the amount and location of the excess skin.

Recovery

Recovery takes one to two weeks, depending on what was done.* Returning to work depends on the activity required on the job but is often about two weeks.* The dressing may be extensive with elastic support or something smaller. The incisions will need to be protected after surgery. Limiting lifting is important. Elevation with pillows increases comfort.*
