The upper arms are one of the most common areas for men and women to store unwanted fatty tissue or develop baggy skin. Weight loss, age or genetics can leave you with flabby upper arms that don’t seem to respond to weight training, aerobics or dieting. Arm lift surgery from Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Campanile can help individuals interested in fine-tuning their upper bodies achieve more toned and youthful looking upper arms.
At Campanile Plastic Surgery, we understand that the way you look doesn’t always reflect how you feel on the inside. That’s why we encourage post-weight loss individuals or those experiencing undesirable effects of age to learn about their cosmetic options so they can move forward with confidence. By removing loose skin and excess fat to reveal leaner, more sculpted arms, an arm lift can put the finishing touch on your weight loss journey or give aging arms enhanced definition.
Dr. Campanile brings his extensive training and experience to each arm lift, customizing each procedure to ensure that you get excellent results that reflect your cosmetic goals.

Your Arm Lift Procedure
To begin an arm lift, Dr. Campanile carefully marks the arm to indicate incision locations and the areas of skin to be removed. The incisions are placed in the underarm and along the inside of the arm so that once the incisions have healed, any noticeable scarring will be minimal. Through these incisions, Dr. Campanile removes excess fat and tissue before tightening the remaining skin for a leaner appearance. Dr. Campanile can also include liposuction with your arm lift for added contouring.
The incisions are then closed and bandaged. An arm lift typically takes between 2 and 3 hours to contour both arms. Most people are able to return to their normal routines within 10 to 14 days, taking care to avoid more strenuous activities for an additional several weeks.
The Best Results for You
As with all cosmetic surgeries, you can see the aesthetic results from your arm lift when your surgeon adopts a customized approach to help you meet your appearance goals. Men and women who have undergone significant weight loss may choose to combine an arm lift with additional body contouring procedures like a tummy tuck or body lift in addition to an arm lift.
