Arm Lift in San Diego, CA
Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center offers body contouring for men and women in San Diego, La Jolla, and Carmel Valley, as well as the surrounding areas of California. Arm lift surgery focuses on the upper arm area that is prone to developing loose skin and excess fat.
What Is an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, improves unattractive contours caused by sagging skin, muscle laxity, and excess fat in the upper arms. Usually related to weight loss or the natural effects of aging, loose skin obscures the contours of the upper arms. The condition cannot be reversed through exercise or diet changes; it must be surgically treated.
An arm lift eliminates the excess skin, tightens the underlying tissue, and removes small pockets of excess fat for slimmer and smoother-looking arms. You can see the results in our arm lift surgery before and after pictures.

How Is Arm Lift Surgery Performed?
During arm lift, excess sagging arm skin is excised. Localized pockets of excess fat are removed via liposuction techniques, and the tissue is tightened and sculpted for better definition in the upper arm’s shape. Internal sutures are placed to support the tissue’s new contours. The skin is tightened around the arm for a firmer, more toned result.
An arm lift is performed through an incision on the inside or back of the arm. The length of the incision depends on the amount of excess skin and degree of correction needed. Depending on the needs of the individual patient, an arm lift can be combined with additional body contouring procedures for a more comprehensive transformation.
What Can I Expect During Arm Lift Recovery?
Recovering from arm lift surgery can take several weeks. The upper arm will be tender, bruised, and swollen. You will wear a compression garment to promote healing, and activities will need to be limited.
What Results Can I Expect from an Arm Lift?
After healing from surgery, the arms look slimmer and more attractive. The skin is firmer and smoother. Patients find it easier to fit into sleeved shirts and have more confidence wearing sleeveless options. Some patients enjoy improved range of motion and are more active after arm lift surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?
Dr. Mozaffari personally meets with every candidate considering arm lift to discuss his or her specific concerns, and to examine their arms. Candidates usually share one or more of the following concerns:
- Arms that look disproportionately larger than the rest of the body
- Difficulty fitting into sleeved shirts
- Embarrassment wearing sleeveless shirts
- Infections, rashes, and chafing in the skin folds
After a candid conversation, Dr. Mozaffari determines whether arm lift is a suitable solution based on the candidate’s needs and goals. If so, he drafts a plan of treatment.
