Arm Lift

Brachioplasty surgery in Montreal
Sagging arm skin can be caused by aging, weight loss or genetics and cannot be changed with exercise, so an arm lift is an effective procedure to achieve a smooth and toned looking upper arm area. 

What is an arm lift (brachioplasty)?

An arm lift (a brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin, fat, and tissue from the upper arms via incisions placed along the inner arms or back of the upper arms. The procedure addresses excess drooping skin and fat to tighten and smooth the upper arms, frequently performed with liposuction to render the best results possible.

Who is a good candidate for an arm lift?

Find out if an arm lift is an option for you

Your plastic surgeon will give you an honest assessment and let you know if you are a good candidate for an arm lift, but in general you should be in good overall health with no medical conditions that can impair healing, must be a nonsmoker or willing to quit smoking, and have realistic expectations.  

You should also have significant sagging skin in the upper arms and be at your goal weight if you have been losing weight. In some cases, liposuction alone will suffice to achieve the desired outcome; your plastic surgeon will discuss this option with you.

Possible risks associated with arm lift surgery

Like any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with arm lift surgery. These can include bleeding, scarring, infection, fluid accumulation (seroma) change in skin sensation, poor wound healing, revision surgery or persistent pain.

What to expect for arm lift recovery

It is our goal at Station L to ensure that your entire experience from the initial consultation to your recovery is as positive and comfortable as possible. Your plastic surgeon and surgical coordinator will go over your post-operative instructions and recovery with you as it is essential for your arm lift recovery and results that you follow care guidelines closely.

You will need to wear compression garments to help with swelling and to compress the skin to help the body adapt, fluid retention and assist the healing process.

First 24 hours: Have someone in place to pick you up from your surgery and care for you at home

Compression garments: 3-6 weeks

Back to work: 1 week for sedentary jobs (desk job), 2 weeks for physically demanding jobs.

Exercise: Light exercise after 2 weeks (light cardio-walking/treadmill, nothing using the arms), Full activities (such as weights) 4-6 weeks

Final results: swelling resolves by 4-8 weeks

Part of our process at Station L is making sure that you have all the information you need to make informed decisions and feel guided through the entire process. Our concept is for you to have a five star experience, and our goal is for you to have the best possible outcomes and least possible complications.

Our office is always available for questions via email or text message should more questions arise.

A great surgeon who listens. You quickly gain confidence in his frankness and expertise. The results obtained are beyond my expectations and I am definitely grateful. A crush for Dr. Arash, for Nashrine, for Marie-Ève and Noémie the nurses who accompanied my process and for the nice ladies at the reception.

Very good surgeon. I had a mommy makeover (abdominoplasty and breast lift with implant) by Dr. Arash and I am very satisfied. He's a magician. I can't stop staring at my chest.
