What is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift (also known as brachioplasty) corrects flabby skin that droops downward and gives your arms a “bat wing” appearance. In many cases, a rigorous diet and exercise can help you lose weight, but fail to eliminate persistent pockets of fat and hanging skin on your arms. Dr. Michael Omidi uses an arm lift surgery to not only eliminate these problem areas, but also tighten the underlying supportive tissue to redefine the shape in the upper arm region. A recognized expert in body contouring, Dr. Michael Omidi has performed countless arm lifts on satisfied patients in Beverly Hills, Apple Valley, the Inland Empire, and the Greater Los Angeles area.

Are you the Right Candidate?

An arm lift is well-suited to those patients who exhibit excess fat and loose skin on the upper arms due to aging or significant weight loss. The ideal arm lift candidate is the one who has attained a stable and normal weight but wishes to rid himself or herself of excess underarm looseness. In Dr. Michael Omidi’s extensive experience performing this procedure, many patients elect to perform arm lifts together with liposuction to attain better contouring.
