To schedule a cosmetic consultation with him, please call our office at (410) 616-3000.

Restore your confidence in your Arms

The dreaded "bat wing" upper arm appearance is a common result of:

  • Weight loss
  • Aging
  • Effects of gravity

When you lose fat volume in your arms, or just as gravity takes its toll over the years, the skin on your arms begins to sag and droop downward. This can be a devastating thing to experience and you may be too embarrassed to wear certain types of clothing because of it. The arm lift (brachioplasty) procedure restores the contour of your arms. Oftentimes this procedure can be combined with liposuction and other procedures to get the best possible results.

The Brachioplasty Procedure

An arm lift enhances the shape and overall appearance of your arms. During the procedure, Dr. Basner will make an incision, and then he will remove the excess fat and skin. The remaining skin is then sutured together to create a new, smooth contour along your arm. Depending on what you want to accomplish with your arm lift, the incision may be isolated to the armpit, or it may extend down your arm.

Although a standard arm lift will leave a scar extending from your armpit to your elbow, the vast majority of arm lift patients are glad they underwent the procedure. The scar is placed in the least conspicuous place possible, and Dr. Basner possesses the experience to create the most minimal incisions possible while providing you with an outstanding result.

Arm Lift Cost

At your initial consultation, we'll provide you with a quote for the cost of your arm lift surgery. The average cost for arm lifts at our plastic surgery practice is $6,100. This average includes just about all of the fees that will go into the final cost, except for the cost of your prescription medications and whatever cost is associated with getting cleared for the procedure prior to your surgery.

TESTIMONIAL: Since the age of 15, I can remember being overweight and struggling with the emotional and physical effects on my body. Now at 40 and after years of exercise I've realized that my sagging skin wasn't going anywhere. With the help of Dr. Basner and his staff I have achieved my goal and can confidently wear a sundress. I couldn't be happier, Thanks. – F.C.
