Brachioplasty RESULTS

Best Arm Lifting Surgery or Brachioplasty in Beverly Hills, CA

What is Brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address excess skin and fat in the upper arms. It is typically performed on individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or have loose and sagging skin in that area. During the procedure, an incision is made along the inner part of the arm which can extend from the elbow or be limited to only the arm pit depending on the patient. Excess skin and fat are removed and the remaining tissues are tightened and reshaped to create a more toned and contoured appearance. Often times, Dr. Chahin uses the option of Vaser ultrasonic liposuction technology and Renuvion Helium Plasma technology to help tighten the skin and reduce the visible scar pattern.

What is the process involved?

The procedure begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort and pain management during the surgery. The length and pattern of the incision depend on the amount of excess skin to be removed and the specific technique employed. Dr. Chahin carefully removes excess skin and fat from the upper arm through a combination of excision (cutting away excess skin) and liposuction (removing excess fat with a cannula and vacuum-like device). Tissues in the upper arm may be tightened to create a more toned and defined appearance. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning the patient can go home on the same day as the surgery.

Benefits of Brachioplasty

Removal of Excess Skin

Brachioplasty effectively removes excess skin that can be a result of weight loss, aging, or genetics. This results in tighter and firmer arms, eliminating sagging or drooping skin.

Enhanced Arm Contour

The procedure not only removes excess skin but also addresses stubborn fat deposits in the upper arms. By removing this excess fat, brachioplasty can create a more sculpted and contoured appearance.

Improved Arm Proportions

Brachioplasty can help achieve a better balance and proportion between the arms and the rest of the body. It can create a more harmonious silhouette and enhance overall body symmetry.

Increased Confidence

Sagging or flabby arms can cause self-consciousness and limit clothing choices. Brachioplasty can boost self-esteem by providing patients with more toned and aesthetically pleasing arms, allowing them to feel more confident and comfortable in their appearance.

Long-lasting Results

The results of brachioplasty are generally long-lasting, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and weight management. While aging and natural changes in the body will continue over time, the improvements achieved through brachioplasty can be significant and enduring.
Procedure Timeline

During your initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. Chahin to discuss your goals, medical history, and any concerns you may have. Dr. Chahin will evaluate your arm's condition, assess your eligibility for the procedure, and discuss the surgical technique that will best suit your needs.

Once you have decided to proceed with the brachioplasty, you will schedule a pre-operative appointment. This appointment is essential for completing pre-operative tests, discussing any necessary preparations (such as adjusting medications), and receiving detailed instructions to follow in the days leading up to the surgery.
On the day of the surgery, you will arrive at the surgical facility. The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the extent of the correction needed and whether additional procedures are performed concurrently. Generally, brachioplasty takes around 3-5 hours to complete. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure.

After the surgery, you will spend some time in the recovery area under observation. Once you are stable, you will be discharged to recover at home. The initial recovery period typically involves some discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Dr. Chahin will provide post-operative instructions on pain management, wound care, and when to schedule follow-up appointments.


Follow-up appointments are crucial for monitoring your healing progress and ensuring the best possible outcome. Dr. Chahin will schedule several appointments during the first few weeks after the surgery to assess your recovery, remove any sutures or drains, and address any concerns you may have. Over time, you will have additional follow-up appointments to evaluate the long-term results of the procedure.

How long is the recovery period after brachioplasty?
The recovery period after brachioplasty can vary depending on individual factors and the extent of the procedure. Generally, it takes about 1-2 weeks to return to normal daily activities, although more strenuous activities and exercise should be avoided for several weeks to allow for proper healing.
Will there be visible scarring after brachioplasty?
Yes, there will be scarring after brachioplasty. The incisions are typically placed on the inner or backside of the arm, where the scars can be concealed. Over time, the scars will fade, and various scar management techniques can help minimize their appearance.
