Arm Lift

Over time, skin begins to lose its elasticity from many factors such as aging, genetics, gravity or changes in weight. Any one of these things can cause your arms to develop sagging skin. If you are looking to tighten this area and even remove excess fatty tissue, Dr. McIntosh offers patients the option of an arm lift in Bellevue. Some patients are great candidates for non-surgical options including Sculpsure or Kybella, while others may only need some liposuction to address their concerns. Take a minute to read about this procedure before scheduling your initial consultation at our office today.

How Are Arm Lifts Performed?

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, varies depending on your body and the results you want for yourself. Often, patients have excess skin that can involve most of the upper arm. The initial incision typically runs along the inner arm and even within the armpit, falling within natural creases. If there is severe skin excess, the incision may need to extend just past the elbow. Extra skin is removed and the incision is closed with dissolving stitches placed under the skin. The result is an immediate improvement in sagging skin of the upper arms.

Scarring can subside with time, and we even offer laser and microneedling treatments to further improve scars. The entire surgery takes about 2 hours, and discomfort and swelling subside within a week or two. Patients of Dr. McIntosh are excited to wear short sleeves and not feel self-conscious about their sagging arms after their surgery.
