Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Emile Brown offers a variety of arm lift options to patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
What is an Arm Lift?
Many people are bothered by loose skin that hangs from the upper arm when fully extended, sometimes called “bat wings.” Also referred to as brachioplasty, an arm lift addresses this problem by reducing sagging skin and sculpting the upper arm to give it a more defined appearance. During an arm lift, excess fat is extracted from the area as well.
Benefits of an Arm Lift
Following an arm lift, you may notice that you are no longer bothered by jiggling skin whenever you move your arms. You also won’t have to hide your arms underneath long sleeves in the summer time. Instead, you will feel more like breaking out those tank tops and sleeveless shirts because you’ll have arms that you are proud to show off.
An arm lift can provide you with the exact amount of sculpting you desire. Our male patients often desire more definition than our female clients, who may prefer a “tightened and toned” look instead. During your consultation, we will discuss your goals to ensure you achieve the type of results you desire.
Who is a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?
After losing a great deal of weight, many of our Annapolis and Baltimore area patients find they have far too much extra skin on the upper arms. These individuals often turn to brachioplasty to help them reduce this excess skin. Even those who have lost only minimal amounts of weight could benefit if their exercise program has not produced the type of results they had hoped for.
How are Arm Lift Procedures Performed?
During surgery, an incision will be made along a hidden area on the inside or back of your arm. This allows your surgeon to extract excess skin and fat in order to create more pleasing contours. The outer skin is then sewn shut with dissolvable stitches.
How Much Does an Arm Lift Cost in Baltimore?
The estimated total cost for an arm lift can vary from $7,000 to $9,000. Our highly-customized arm lift procedures are tailored to your own individual needs. During your consultation, we will be glad to answer all of your questions, including those pertaining to specific techniques that might affect your cost. We will also help you determine the best method of payment based on your needs and budget. Many times, we are able to offer specials that help patients maximize their cosmetic procedure dollars. On other occasions, we may recommend financing through a major credit card or low-interest financing through CareCredit® or Prosper® Health Care Lending.
