What does the procedure entail?
During the surgery, Dr. Gurley will design an incision that best addresses the problem. Usually, this incision extends from the armpit down to the elbow area. Sometimes the incision is shorter, depending on the individual. Liposuction is used in conjunction if necessary.
What are the alternatives to this procedure?
Although diet and exercise can't tighten skin, it can help with fat reduction. It's important to exercise and eat healthy; we can help with the rest.
What can I expect?
Patients are given a compression sleeve to wear in order to provide support for the surgical site. Normal activities can be resumed the next day. We prefer that you avoid strenuous exercise for 2-4 weeks after surgery.Start a Conversation
Who is a good candidate?
You may consider this procedure if:
You have loose skin or stretch marks on your arms that diet and exercise cannot improve.:
You feel self-conscious about the "wings" of skin that extend from your elbow to your upper arm.
You have loose skin from weight loss that you would like removed, or you feel uncomfortable wearing short sleeves or tank tops.
Real Artistic Outcomes
When an arm lift is performed by a board-certified surgeon, you'll notice a dramatic improvement in the size and shape of the upper arm. Dr. Gurley works individually with each patient to help shape the look of your arm in a way that works best for you. Depending on your anatomy and what Dr. Gurley sees, she may also suggest liposuction in tandem with a Brachioplasty for the most permanent results. Our gallery shows the drastic improvements Dr. Gurley is able to offer those undergoing the arm lift procedure.
