Arm Lift – Brachioplasty
Brachioplasty, known as an arm lift, is performed to restructure the arm’s under part or the area stretching from the armpit to the elbow. Arm lift often eliminates sagging skin, tightens the underlying tissue, and reduces stubborn fat in the upper arm region. Diet and exercise may address the top of the upper arm, but the arm’s under part could be difficult to restore. Arm lift by Dr. Azouz could be a great body contouring option for patients who want to tone their arms. Request an arm lift consultation with Dr. Azouz by calling (972) 702-8888 and take the first step to enhance your arms.

Adults living with loose skin on their upper arms due to weight loss or aging can often benefit from this procedure.
Individuals should be at a stable and healthy weight and be healthy, nonsmokers. A consultation with Dr. Azouz can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.

How is an Arm Lift performed in Dallas?
The extent of the surgery depends on your desires and Dr. Azouz’s professional techniques to achieve your goals. During arm lift surgery, Dr. Azouz will create the necessary incisions to tighten, restructure, and contour your upper arm. The incisions may be concealed within the armpits or down the side of the arms in the most inconspicuous locations available. Liposuction may also be used to remove excess fat. Sutures will be used to close the incision(s).
Anesthesia for an Arm lift procedure
Dr. Azouz performs arm lift surgery with the use of local and sedation anesthesia. General anesthesia can also be used; however, local and sedation anesthesia is associated with more enhanced recovery.
Arm lift recovery
Incision(s) are virtually unnoticeable once the healing process is completed. Recovery times vary for each patient. Dr. Azouz provides specific aftercare instructions and close follow-up care to ensure ideal results and healthy recovery. Individuals must be committed to a healthy diet and lifestyle to maintain their arm lift results.
Combination of an Arm lift with other plastic surgeries in Dallas
Arm lift in Dallas can be combined with many other procedures. Some of the common combination surgeries include:

Arm lift with Dr. Azouz
“For many years I have thought about getting an arm and thigh lift to remove excess skin from a 70lb weight loss I went through about 12 years ago. I am only 37 now, but the time felt right, so when I moved to Dallas in May I started researching cosmetic surgeons in the area and found Dr. Azouz. This was my first experience with any type of surgery, and from the first consultation, both Dr. David Azouz and Dr. Solomon Azouz were just amazing!! They spent an incredible amount of face-to-face time with me, patiently going over the procedures and asking me exactly what I wanted. I felt incredibly comfortable with them and their team, and it was clear they had a vast amount of knowledge and experience in this field.
I always felt heard and listened to throughout the process, and I received multiple check-in calls while recovering. I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to end up getting surgery when I first went in for a consultation, but I felt very positive and confident after my visit with the Azouz team. They were able to get me in quickly and accommodate my schedule. The surgery itself went seamlessly, and I felt I had been well prepared for the experience and after-care. I also really appreciated both Dr. Azouzs were caring but very honest and frank about what procedures would benefit me the most and what I should realistically expect from surgery. I ended up doing an arm lift and liposuction on my thighs. It has now been about 6 weeks since I had the work done, and even though I am still recovering and not seeing the final results yet, I can certainly see a huge difference in my arms and legs!! I am THRILLED with my decision to move ahead with the surgery and equally ecstatic that I found Dr. Azouz, who has continued to be amazing during my follow-up visits.
Having just been through this process, I KNOW it is intimidating to choose the right cosmetic surgeon. I met with a few before going to Dr. Azouz, and he really stood out with his expertise, kindness, and honesty. I am so thankful to him and his associates for giving me a newfound confidence in my body, and I will certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a wonderful and trustworthy surgeon.”
