Arm Lift


A brachioplasty, better known as an arm lift, is a procedure Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeon Dr. Zoran Potparic performs to enhance the appearance of the upper arms. This procedure reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow, reshapes the arm to result in smoother skin and contours, and results in a more toned and proportionate appearance.

Dr. Potparic offers arm lift and many other body contouring procedures in Fort Lauderdale, FL. For a free consultation please call (954) 908-6706 or contact us online.

The smoother, tighter contours that result from any body lift procedure are apparent almost immediately, although initially obscured by swelling and bruising. Arm contours are dramatically improved both in appearance and feel. The doctor typically places incisions in the inner arm region. Although permanent, the resulting incision lines are generally placed within the normal body contours and are “invisible” from a frontal or back view.

The results of arm lift surgery will be long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.
