Excess fat and sagging skin on the arms can be a source of insecurity for many people and may cause them to feel limited in their clothing options. Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa offers two treatment options for patients looking to improve the appearance and contour of their arms.
For patients looking to remove small quantities of excess fat that are not responding to diet and exercise, Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery offers arm reduction treatments. Arm reduction treatments use ultrasound assisted liposuction to remove excess fat and tighten the skin in the treated area. This option is best for patients with good skin tone and elasticity. In some cases, Dr. Chernoff may recommend non-surgical skin tightening treatments in combination with the liposuction treatments. A customized treatment plan will be developed in your initial consultation in order to help you achieve the best possible results.

Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery also offers arm lift treatments, or Brachioplasty, to help treat sagging skin as a result of dramatic weight loss or the aging process. In this procedure, excess tissue is surgically removed from the arm area, which will result in a discrete scar on the back of the arm. Some patients may require both liposuction and skin subtraction to achieve their aesthetic goals. Before surgery, Dr. Chernoff will review a patient’s overall medical history and general health and determine the best surgical approach. Results of this procedure are typically long-lasting, but excessive weight gain or weight loss can alter the effects of the surgery.
Advantages of Arm Lift procedures:
- Immediately removes fat and excess arm tissue
- Long-lasting results
- Tightens and tones arms
What can I expect post-treatment?
Immediately following the procedure, we recommend that patients rest and limit activity. Dr. Chernoff will help determine when you can resume your normal activities; weight training and aerobic exercise should be avoided while your body heals. Patients could experience swelling, bruising, numbness, and sensitivity around the surgical area. These side effects are temporary and should resolve on their own. Any post-surgery pain is mild to moderate and can be managed with oral pain killers.
