Arm Lift

Naples Plastic Surgery

Naples Plastic Surgery is highly regarded throughout the Naples area for its combination of surgical expertise and state-of-the-art medical facilities. Our surgeons, Dr. Mark Walsh and Dr. Andrew Bonett, help all of their respective arm lift patients reach their beauty potential by contouring loose skin on the arms to produce tighter, more youthful-looking limbs.

Sagging skin along the upper arm area can cause patients to become self-conscious. Despite doing rigorous arm exercises and eating a healthy diet, patients find that weight loss and exercise can only offer modest results in treating the condition. To dramatically improve the upper arm area, many patients seek out the cosmetic surgery solution as offered by our plastic surgeons.

Hi, I’m Dr Bonett and today we’re going to talk about armlift. Many patients see us with concerns for loose and sagging skin under their arm, whether it be from aging, major weight changes, or just genetics. In some cases you may be able to treat arm fat with liposuction, but often an arm lift is required. In minor cases, sometimes we can get away with what’s called a short scar, or a mini armlift, where the incision is hidden near the underarm area but in most cases it requires a full incision down the length of the arm nearly from the armpit to the Elbow but this is hidden on the inside of the arm and is not very easy to see in most cases.

In severe cases most often after massive weight loss it may even require an extended incision onto the chest wall regardless of what’s required our main goal is to give you a nice rejuvenated Contour of your arms and your chest wall if required.

Some initial swelling and discomfort is pretty common but our team will guide you through recovery which goes very smoothly. If you’re interested in rejuvenating your arms please see us for a consultation

Brachioplasty in Naples

Dr. Walsh and Dr. Bonett meet with their patients on a one-on-one basis prior to the procedure to get to know the patient and determine their aesthetic concerns and goals. With this consultation, your plastic surgeon will develop an agreed-upon personalized treatment plan designed to help you achieve the desired look.

Your chosen surgeon begins the arm lift procedure by marking the arm to determine the ideal incision sites and areas of the skin that need to be extracted. Then, he gently places incisions in the underarm or inner-arm area to minimize visible scarring. Lending his outstanding surgical skills and eye for aesthetics, Dr. Walsh and Dr. Bonett then artfully sculpt the arms to produce natural-looking, sought-after results.

In some instances, your plastic surgeon may suggest combining brachioplasty with liposuction to eliminate fat deposits in the upper arm area, as well as tighten loose skin. Patients can have liposuction and an arm lift in one procedure, making the enhancement more affordable than two separate procedures.

Patients have this surgery at an accredited ambulatory surgical suite, which is equipped with some of the most sophisticated medical technologies available. Naples Plastic Surgery features several spa-like amenities and offers patients the ultimate level of relaxation during their consultation. Our attentive team is there to assist patients during every step of the process, ensuring patient satisfaction and safe recovery periods.

Recovering from Arm Lift Surgery

Following surgery, patients typically need two weeks of rest before returning to their daily schedules. Patients should keep their arms elevated as much as possible during this time in order to alleviate swelling and promote comfort.

As with all surgical procedures, there is a chance complications could arise during the surgery. To minimize these risks, patients should adhere to the detailed outline of post-operative instructions to ensure they recover from an arm lift properly. Dr. Walsh, Dr. Bonett and their team strive to give patients unsurpassed care that addresses all of their questions and concerns.
