Arm Lift Atlanta

If you have unsightly sagging skin on the upper arms because of aging, genetics, or weight loss, then you may be a candidate for upper arm lift surgery. Also called brachioplasty, it is intended to reduce or eliminate excess skin from the upper arms.

While exercise can improve and strengthen muscle tone in your upper arms, it can’t address excess skin that has lost elasticity. If you are generally in good health and not significantly overweight, then arm lift surgery can restore a healthier, youthful appearance.

What to Expect with Your Arm Lift

Our arm lift procedures are performed in Atlanta on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Most arm lift surgeries are completed in one-and-a-half to two to three hours, depending on the amount of excess skin. The procedure involves removing excess skin along an incision, which ideally falls along the line of blouse seam. The length and pattern of the incision are determined by how much skin will be removed.

If necessary, liposuction will be used to remove excess fat. Your skin will then be draped over the new contours and excess skin will be removed. After your arm lift, your incisions will be loosely wrapped in elastic bandages to minimize swelling.

Following your arm lift procedure, your upper arms will either wrapped or placed in an elastic sleeve to reduce swelling. Initial healing usually occurs in 10 to 14 days. Sutures are usually removed within the first one to two weeks. Swelling and bruising gradually disappear over three to four weeks.

All swelling is gone in three to six months. The scars fade in six to 24 months depending on your skin. An additional procedure that may enhance the result is liposuction of the upper arms.

“I was comfortable from the moment I sat down with Dr. Val. I had discussed what I was interested in and she reassured me that it was possible and that I shouldn’t be nervous about the procedure. She gave me all of the information and let me know what to expect and gave me time to consider if that was what I wanted to move forward with. There was support throughout the entire process even more support than I expected. And as a result, immediately after, my confidence soared. I would like to give a huge thank you to Dr Val for helping me get me back.”

I can’t say thank you enough to Dr. Val for helping me achieve a vision that I thought was lost – my pre-baby belly. For years I accepted that this will be the best it would look. I was wrong! Dr. Val was realistic, understanding, and skillful from beginning to end. She was easy to talk to and had equal concern for my outcome. She made having my procedure one of the best things I could have ever done for myself. Thank you again, Dr.Val!

I went to see Dr. Val for filler and Botox. Overall, I must say that my experience was great. Dr. Val made me feel at ease and my results were amazing. My lips were perfect and Dr. Val was able to give my eyebrow a lift that was very nicely done.


I was so nervous about getting my reconstruction after my mastectomy. Dr. Val you guided me through the process, answering all my questions and telling me what to expect every step of the way. From my heart I say thank you. You are the best. I’m feeling like a women again, and I can smile again because of you.
