Imagine yourself feeling confident, wearing sleeveless tops, with your upper arms slender and toned. Medically called a “Brachioplasty,” arm lift surgery can create a slender appearance to the arms by removing loose skin that will never disappear with any amount of diet or exercise. And, for those who desire sculpted definition in the arms, Dr. Graw can perform adjunctive liposculpting techniques.

Elegant upper arms – Palo Alto Brachioplasty surgeon

The look of slender, toned upper arms can be naturally appealing. The female body is programmed to store fat in various areas, including the upper arms. Fat or saggy skin on the upper arms is a common aesthetic concern for women. It can be virtually impossible to resolve this aesthetic problem with diet and exercise.

How is an arm lift performed?

When under the care of Dr. Graw, your arm lift in Palo Alto, will be 100% customized. Each individual is different, and a variety of techniques could be used:

  • Short-scar arm lift: This technique is ideal for women with minimal excess skin, mostly concentrated along the inner section of the upper arm. The incision is placed within the armpit for minimal scarring. 
  • Limited incision arm lift: For those with a moderate level of sagging skin on the upper arms, an incision can be placed from the armpit to the center of the underside of the upper arm. 
  • Traditional arm lift surgery: This procedure is appropriate for those who have achieved dramatic weight loss or are experiencing age-related sagging skin and tissue on the upper arms. The incision extends from the armpit to the elbow, on the underside of the arm. Special incision patterns make it possible to limit the visibility of surgical scars.
  • Extended arm lift: An extended arm lift includes removing skin and tissue along the upper arms, as well as around the armpit and sides of the chest wall. The incision will extend from the elbow, across the armpit, and along the side of the chest wall.
  • Arm liposuction/liposculpting: Each one of these procedures can be performed with Dr. Graw specialized liposuction techniques to further define and sculpt your arms.
