Arm Lift Techniques By Hadi Rassael on April 22, 2013

There are many areas of the body that prove difficult to trim and tone through diet and exercise. One of the most difficult areas of the body to trim and tone through these methods is the upper arms. Indeed, the upper arms are a common problem area for many men and women. Fat that has accumulated on the upper arms can be nearly impossible to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. The natural aging process, genetics, weight gain, and even weight loss can cause fat and loose, sagging skin to form in the upper arms. Droopy, flabby, hanging skin is a common problem for patients who have lost a substantial amount of weight.

If you are suffering from weakened tissues in the upper arms, localized areas of fat on the upper arms, and loose, sagging skin from the upper arms, you may benefit from arm lift surgery. At the practice of Chevy Chase cosmetic surgeon Hadi Rassael, arm lift surgery can be performed to achieve slimmer, more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing arms. Through arm lift surgery, you can achieve the trim, toned upper arms you desire.


If you are tired of feeling embarrassed by the appearance of your upper arms, there is a good chance that you are a candidate for arm lift surgery. Ideally, Chevy Chase arm lift candidates are men and women who are in good health, are at or near their ideal body weight, have realistic expectations, and are suffering from loose, sagging skin and isolated areas of fat in the upper arms.

Arm Lift Techniques

Arm lift surgery is performed to improve the appearance of the upper arms through the removal of excess fat and skin. Through arm lift techniques, we can help patients achieve a more defined, toned, proportionate contour to the upper arms. To best serve the needs of each individual patient, we cannot determine the arm lift technique that will be included in your treatment plan until Dr. Hadi Rassael has performed a comprehensive examination. Dr. Rassael will customize treatment to your unique needs and goals. Arm lift techniques that may be utilized during your surgery include:

  • Liposuction: Patients who are at or near their ideal body weight, but are still struggling with stubborn fat in the upper arms, with minimal amounts of hanging skin, may benefit from liposuction. For many patients at our cosmetic surgery practice in Chevy Chase, liposuction is the only procedure needed to achieve a smoother, more proportionate, and toned appearance to the upper arms.
  • Limited incision arm lift: Patients suffering from droopy, sagging skin on the upper arms may benefit from limited incision arm lift surgery. This technique is best suited to patients who would not be best served by liposuction alone, but who do not require traditional arm lift surgery.
  • Traditional arm lift: Patients who have lost a large amount of weight as well as those who have lost a lot of skin elasticity in the upper arms may benefit from traditional arm lift surgery. By removing excess skin and fat from the upper arms, we are able to achieve a more defined, toned, and slender contour to the upper arms.
