Today’s social mores favor a toned, athletic physique. That’s only one reason that arm lift surgery, or brachioplasty, performed by a Board-certified Las Vegas plastic surgeon has become a much-sought-after cosmetic surgery procedure.

If you’re a woman or a man in Las Vegas, or you plan to visit our area soon and want to find out more about how you can achieve the body of your dreams with help from an arm lift, please contact the Henderson, Nevada offices of Arthur M. Cambeiro, M.D. Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery to book your brachioplasty consultation: (702) 577-0039. This procedure, which is often combined with liposuction, is designed to removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms.

How Proportionate Are Your Arms?

Some of the reasons that patients visit Dr. Cambeiro for an arm lift include:

  • Loose, flabby upper-arm skin that’s often the result of normal aging
  • The upper arms appear disproportionately larger and fuller compared to the rest of your body.
  • Diet and exercise alone have failed to produce the firm, toned upper arms you desire.

During brachioplasty surgery, Dr. Cambeiro removes excess skin and fat from the inner aspect of the arms, using absorbable sutures that leave minimal scarring. The arm lift is a procedure that enjoys a high patient satisfaction rate. Plus, Dr. Cambeiro has the training, skill and experience necessary to produce the attractive, envious arms you’ve always wanted.

Your Las Vegas Arm Lift: The Details

Your arm lift consultation will include a detailed medical history and an exam. Our Board-certified Las Vegas plastic surgeon will pay especially close attention to your skin tone and the specific location of fat deposits in your arms. The particulars of your unique physiology paired with your aesthetic goals will help Dr. Cambeiro determine the best course of action for your arm lift, which is a procedure that requires anesthesia. This visit is an ideal time for you to ask as many questions as you like about brachioplasty, and to talk with the doctor about any risks associated with the procedure, as well as the cost.

Patients who struggle with high blood pressure will need to have the condition well-managed before their brachioplasty.

You will have a second office visit with Dr. Cambeiro before your surgery date. Among other business, you’ll take home specific instructions about preparing for surgery including guidelines for eating, drinking, smoking cessation and medications as well as your recovery. With your permission, we take digital pictures of your arms to help chronicle the emergence of your new body over time.

After surgery, your arms will be swollen for several days. You will be provided with compression sleeves to aid in your recovery. Please wear them and plan to stay out of the sun until your healing has progressed. The surgeon will ask to see you for a post-operative appointment three days after your arm lift.

Your brachioplasty scars will begin to fade in about three months.
