What is an arm lift? Also known as a brachioplasty, an arm lift is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess fatty tissue and excess skin from your upper arm. Dr. Ordon & Dr. Chopra have performed some of the top results for brachioplasty Palm Desert patients have ever seen.
The goal of an arm lift is to provide you with a more youthful, smooth and even contour of the upper arm. An arm lift can include the trimming of fat and of skin as well as be combined with liposuction techniques to boost the outcome.
Depending on the severity and degree of excess skin, your surgeon can use a variety of techniques that can be substantial but all with the same goal: achieving the best results.
If you have loose skin, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed from the inner part of your arm, which can be accomplished with just a single scar running along the inner portion of your arm from the elbow to the armpit. The incision can easily be concealed. Fewer incisions may be needed if your condition is less extensive. It can be done through a single or double scar in the armpit.
Dr. Villanueva and Dr. Chopra have an impeccable record of performing arm lift surgeries. If you are physically and mentally healthy, you are a good candidate for an arm lift. People who have experienced rapid and/or dramatic weight-loss are ideal candidates and among the ones we see often in our office. When fat is reduced all over the body, it often leads to excess skin on the upper arms. Hence, the need for an arm lift.
Many of our Rancho Mirage brachioplasty patients are women age 50 or older who become self conscious of the excessive skin in their upper arms. Our doctors are always happy to make an in-person evaluation that includes an assessment of your current health and medical history.

If you are seeking the best arm lift Rancho Mirage has to offer, make sure you are at your ideal weight and do not plan to lose or gain anymore. If you smoke, you will need to quit well in advance of the surgery and not smoke for several months after your procedure. Smoking can severely inhibit your body’s ability to heal by limiting the oxygen supply to the blood and tissue.
The surgeon will provide all medications, including antibiotics and painkillers, that are safe for you and will not create complications. You'll also need to avoid over the counter medications that are blood thinners like Aspirin and Aleve to prevent excessive blood loss during and after your surgery. You will receive instructions on how to prepare for your surgery and your recovery, such as finding someone to assist, drive you home, and give yourself enough time to recover. We provide a suitable environment so patients like you can heal most efficiently.
