What is Arm Lift?

An Arm Lift in Tampa, also known as Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of your upper arms. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the arms to create a more toned and tighter look. Arm Lift surgery from Ravive Plastic Surgery is often sought by individuals who have loose or flappy skin (batwings) in the upper arm area, typically due to factors such as aging, weight loss, or genetics. The procedure can help tighten and reshape the arms, enhancing overall body proportions and boosting self-confidence. By removing the excess skin, an  Arm Lift can provide a more youthful appearance to the arm area, allowing individuals to feel more comfortable and confident in sleeveless clothing.

What to Expect on the Day of Arm Lift

On the day of your Arm Lift procedure at Ravive Plastic Surgery in Tampa, FL, our dedicated team will ensure that you feel comfortable and excited about the experience ahead. Once you are ready, general anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort and pain-free experience. Dr. Bhat will then make precise incisions in the targeted areas of your arms, removing excess skin and fat as necessary through a combination of both liposuction and direct excess excision of skin.

The remaining tissues will be repositioned to create a more toned appearance. The surgery itself may take several hours, depending on the specific needs and goals of your Brachioplasty. Once we are complete and you’re cleared to go home, you will need to have someone drive you as you may still be under the effects of anesthesia.

Arm Lift Recovery

During your Arm Lift recovery, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and minor discomfort. Dr. Bhat will provide you with instructions on how to care for your incisions and manage any pain. It’s essential to rest and avoid strenuous activities to allow proper healing. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and remove any drains or sutures. Over time, swelling and bruising will subside, revealing the final results of your Brachioplasty.
