Dr Troung is a gifted surgeon.I am 16 days post with very little discomfort and back to work and the scaring is healing so fast. His staff is very polite and sincere. Aftercare was GREAT. I am glad to have been his patient for this life changing surgery.

Get a Comprehensive Arm Lift Consultation

Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.

What to Expect
Arm lift surgery isn’t about losing weight. Instead, brachioplasty is a body contouring procedure designed to help improve the shape of your arm by removing excess skin and fatty tissue. Sagginess through the upper arms can develop for a number of reasons, including weight fluctuation, genetics and simply growing older. An arm lift accentuates your natural muscle tone while restoring more youthful contours that bring out the best in your upper body.
Your Consultation
Dr. Truong meets personally with every patient before proceeding with any cosmetic surgery. During this consultation, you can explain more about your goals for the procedure. Dr. Truong will conduct a physical evaluation in order to determine whether an arm lift is the best option for you. For example, if excess skin isn’t an issue, he may recommend upper arm liposuction instead. Your consultation is a great time to ask any questions you may have. Dr. Truong will also give you detailed information about the steps you need to follow before and after surgery, and tips for a safe and comfortable recovery.
Preparing for Your Arm Lift
Performing brachioplasty typically takes Dr. Truong about 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure and whether any other surgeries are performed at the same time. The incision for your arm lift is made discreetly along the back of the arm where it rests against your body for a discreet, natural-looking final result.
Recovery & Results
It’s normal to feel some discomfort in the first few days after your arm lift, and Dr. Truong may advise you to avoid any activities that require you to lift your arms overhead. Depending on your daily routine, this may mean taking a week or two of downtime before heading back to work, school or your regular activities. As healing progresses, your upper arms should look slimmer and more youthful. Muscle contours should appear more refined, and you can wear sleeveless fashions with confidence once again.
