Get Over Excess Underarm Skin With an Arm Lift in Los Angeles

Rocking in a hammock is a great way to spend an afternoon, soaking in the fresh air, reading a book, or taking a nap.

But when the underside of your arm swings like a hammock, you soak in the self-consciousness and take a break from short sleeves.

Whether people call them “bat wings” or “flabby arms,” it’s time to get rid of that excess skin and fat hanging down from your upper arms. An arm lift in Los Angeles makes bat wings go bye-bye!

Technically called a brachioplasty, an arm lift eliminates the droop for younger-looking, better-shaped upper arms.


What an Arm Lift Treats

  • Drooping skin
  • Excess skin and fat
  • Chafing/rashes caused by skin rub
  • Low self-esteem

Benefits of an Arm Lift

Arm Contour

Getting rid of loose, sagging skin and fat makes your arms look slimmer and younger.

Improved Health

Sagging upper arm skin can rub against clothing and your sides, causing chafing and rashes. If the sag is gone, the problem is solved.

Self Reward

Did a recent weight loss cause the appearance of drooping upper arm skin? Congratulations! Reward your hard work with an arm lift to show off the new you.

The Arm Lift Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that an arm lift in Los Angeles is the best option for your goals, your surgery can be scheduled, and you’ll be filled in on the pre-surgery preparation details.



Your Younique surgeon begins the procedure by administering general anesthesia. During the 2 to 4 hour brachioplasty, an incision is made from the elbow to the armpit, and in some cases to the side of the chest. Your provider then tightens the muscles in the upper arm and removes any excess fat and skin, leaving a shaped, contoured upper arm.

You will be given either absorbable sutures or stitches (removed after a week or 2) to close the incision.



You’ll need to have transportation to and from the surgery center arranged. Expect not to be able to drive a car for 5 to 10 days after your surgery.

There will be substantial dressings covering your closed incision which will need to be changed frequently. Also, you’ll wear a special compression garment to minimize swelling and discomfort.

Arm lift recipients usually return to work after 2 to 3 weeks, but we advise against heavy lifting for 2 to 6 weeks.
