What is an arm lift and tightening procedure?

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that simultaneously reduces sagging skin on the arms, removes fat pockets, tightens and smooths the supportive tissue, and reshapes and contours the upper arm. 

Dr. Jason Emer in Beverly Hills uses innovative combination treatments for optimal results. His skilled West Hollywood plastic surgeons’ surgical intervention (such as brachioplasty) is complemented by nonsurgical arm sculpting techniques, including hi-definition liposuction; internal “shrink wrap” skin tightening, which uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the undersurface of the skin; external RF skin tightening devices; non-invasive Coolsculpting; and arm threading. In combination, these procedures can lift and tighten the arms, resulting in contoured, athletic arms, a smaller incision, and reduced downtime.

What are the benefits of an arm lift and tightening?

  • Removal of excess fat and skin
  • Tightening and firming of the underarms
  • Improved skin tone
  • Improved arm shape
  • Skin elasticity is restored after massive weight loss
  • More proportionate arms
  • Well-hidden scars
  • Improved satisfaction with one’s image
  • Increased wardrobe options
  • No more wearing long-sleeves all the time
  • Better results from working out
  • Perform sports and physical activity without embarrassment

Who is a good candidate for an arm lift and tightening with Dr. Emer in Beverly Hills?

  • You are at or close to your ideal, healthy weight
  • You are of sound mind and body
  • You are free from any major medical concerns or conditions
  • You are a non-smoker
  • You are willing to follow the doctor’s instructions before and after treatment
  • You are realistic in your expectations for your outcome
  • You are looking to contour your upper arms
  • You would like a more youthful-looking physique

What can I expect from recovery?

The normal timeline for arm lift recovery entails resting for about a week before resuming your normal schedule. You may be asked to wear a special compression garment that helps minimize post-operative swelling and helps to keep your new shape intact. Any non-dissolving sutures will be removed within one week. 

You should avoid heavy lifting and vigorous exercise for at least 2 weeks after surgery. You will receive prescriptions for painkillers to help offset any discomfort or soreness. You should be able to notice your improved contours immediately, although some minor swelling may obscure you final result for a few weeks.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

As Emerage Medical reopens to the public, we’re implementing extensive protocols to keep our practice virus-free, and our staff and patients safe. Our approach closely follows public health directives and the latest recommendations from medical journals and academies.

Fewer People, Less Risk
The most visible change is reduced in-office staff. Fewer people means less person-to-person contact. We are only seeing about 25% of our normal patient volume and will only increase this by expanding our operating schedule – not by reducing time between patients.

Here’s How Patients Can Help
1. Please do not bring guests unless absolutely necessary, as they will not be permitted in the waiting room.
2. Please continue to wear a mask or face covering until you enter the exam room.
3. We screen everyone who enters the office – staff and patients alike – about recent travel, flu-like symptoms, and any potential exposure to COVID-19. Please help us by being transparent in your answers.
4. Please allow our staff to take your temperature at check-in using a contactless thermometer.

What to Expect After Check-In
After the check-in screening, patients will be directly escorted to their exam room to complete any paperwork. This is to reduce potential contact with other patients. Clean pens and clipboards will be provided to everyone and resterilized between each use.

Even More Safety Measures
Everyone on our staff has been directed not to come in if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or recently came in direct contact with anyone who’s tested positive. Here’s what else we’re doing to keep you safer:

  • Staff members will be wearing protective masks at all times.
  • All chairs, surfaces, and non-disposable equipment will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes between patients and at the top of every hour. 
  • All in-person meetings with suppliers, vendors, or salespeople have been canceled to reduce unnecessary foot traffic.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are available in nearly every area of the office.
  • The entire practice will be cleaned each night, including periodic deep cleanings to further sanitize the premises.
