Arm Lift Newport Beach

Arm lift surgery will help you if you have droopy upper arms by eliminating fat pockets and redundant skin. Arm lift surgery, also called brachioplasty, delivers excellent results and allows Dr. Sundine to give you the toned, beautiful upper arms you long for. Droopy upper arms can be caused by loss of skin elasticity due to aging or weight fluctuations. Often, if you have lost a lot of weight, you will need arm lift surgery.

For more information on arm lift surgery, please read the paragraphs below. To schedule a consultation with Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Sundine, please call his office at 949 706 3100.

Who Is a Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery?

Arm lift surgery is pursued by individuals who are unhappy with excess fat or droopy arm skin, including those who have skin laxity due to aging, patients who have lost massive amounts of weight, and new mothers who have lost weight after pregnancy. Arm lift surgery patients must be healthy and not severely overweight. If you are planning on losing weight in the near future or having a bariatric procedure, you are advised to postpone arm lift surgery.

The Arm Lift Surgery Procedure in Newport Beach

Arm lift surgery is performed at our fully accredited outpatient surgical center under general anesthesia. The surgery may last from one to three hours depending on how much fat and skin is being removed. Dr. Sundine begins arm lift surgery by creating incisions that extend from the underarm to just above the elbow. If you have mildly redundant skin and not much fat, you may only require small incisions in the lower part of the armpit. (This procedure is also known as minimal incision arm lift surgery.) After creating the incisions, Dr. Sundine uses liposuction to break up and remove excess fat. The excess skin is them trimmed and the rest is tightened and sutured in place.

Recovering from Arm Lift Surgery

After arm lift surgery, you will experience mild post-operative swelling and bruising, which subsides within two weeks. Any post-operative discomfort is relieved with pain medication, and bandages and sutures are removed within the first week. After this time you may return to work and your other daily routines. Dr. Sundine will provide you with aftercare instructions. The final results are usually visible within six weeks. During recuperation, Dr. Sundine will closely monitor you.

    “GREAT PLASTIC SURGEON. I’M GLAD HE DID MY SURGERIES.”

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    “THE RESULTS NOTHING SHORT OF EXCEPTIONAL”

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
