Beverly Hills, Orange County Arm Lift Surgery

Dr. K. Charles Kim is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in cosmetic plastic surgery of the face, breast and body.  The Beverly Hills/ Orange County Plastic Surgeon is Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and is considered best in class for performing Arm Lift Surgery - also known as "Brachioplasty".  

Arm Lift Surgery of Brachioplasty is a very effective way for men and women to tighten and lift their upper arms. This surgery can result in a more youthful, significantly slender, and firmer arm appearance. Arm lift surgery is a helpful procedure for people that have had an extreme weight loss following bariatric surgery or a reduction of the skin's elasticity in elderly patients.

Please review the greater LA area Plastic Surgeon's Before & After Arm Lift/ Brachioplasty Plastic Surgery Gallery: Arm Lift/ Brachioplasty 

The Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon' patients are usually thrilled at having their "wings" removed, giving them greater freedom to wear normal clothing again and participate in all physical activities. The Beverly Hills, Plastic Surgeon sees many patients who have excessive skin in their upper arms “bat wings” from aging or excessive weight loss and often times, will recommend an arm lift (or brachioplasty) to remedy the problem.

Brachioplasty Surgery

The brachioplasty  / armlift surgery procedure generally takes two to three hours to complete and is done on an outpatient basis at the Los Angeles or Orange County Plastic Surgeon's fully accredited surgical suites.

Arm Lift Surgery

The arm lift / Brachioplasty procedure is typically done using a general anesthesia. Dr. Kim then removes the excess skin using an incision that starts by the elbow and extends all the way to the armpit.

Please advise, any patient considering an arm lift has to weigh the benefit of having loose skin against the drawback of a permanent scar. There is no scarless arm lift surgery. Usually, the patient who chooses to have an arm lift performed is one who has lost a considerable amount of weight and has what they often refer to as "bat wings." Patients with just a little sag often find that the lengthy scar deters them from having the surgery.  Please discuss the various options with the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon during your complimentary consultation.
