Arm Lift in Houston, TX
Weight fluctuations and natural aging cause the skin on the upper arm to stretch and become loose, and fat deposits to accumulate. Over time, these conditions can cause embarrassing arm flap to hang off the upper arms.
Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to produce more slender and toned contours.
Am I a Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery?
Candidates for arm lift surgery do not smoke, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations of their results.
Because Dr. Kronowitz performs liposuction arm lift surgery, patients should have some skin elasticity in their upper arms.
What Are the Benefits of an Arm Lift?

- Restore their confidence
To see if you are a candidate for arm lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kronowitz by calling (713) 523-0300.
How Is Arm Lift Surgery Performed?
Arm lift surgery improves the contours of the upper arms by:
- Eliminating stubborn fat deposits
- Tightening the underlying tissues
- Achieving better definition and shape
Dr. Kronowitz utilizes liposuction during his arm lifts because it liquefies the fat and tightens the loose skin on the arms. His upper arm liposuction technique results in the long-term tightening of the arm without cutting.
Because he does not use the traditional arm lift incisions—which can extend from the armpit to the elbow, patients will not develop a noticeable scar. Patients are both surprised and delighted with how toned their arms appear without an extensive scar.
Minimal scarring may develop from the liposuction incisions. These will fade over time to become nearly inconspicuous.
Should I Combine My Arm Lift With Another Surgery?
Arm lift surgery can be combined with liposuction on neighboring body areas to enhance your body contouring results further.
How Long Is My Arm Lift Recovery?
You may be bruised, swollen, and sore following your arm lift. Your arms may be covered with compression garments to help reduce swelling and pain. Discomfort can be lessened with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication.
Most patients return to their day-to-day activities after one week. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for four to six weeks.
How Much Does Arm Lift Surgery Cost?
The total cost of your arm lift surgery will depend on the extent of the procedure in addition to anesthesia fees, facility fees, surgeon’s fees, and pre-surgical tests.
At Kronowitz Plastic Surgery, the cost of your arm lift begs at $2,340.
When Will I See My Arm Lift Results?
You will notice the full extent of your arm lift once the bruising and swelling subside—usually in a few weeks.
The results of an arm lift are generally permanent as long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle. This surgery does not prevent the aging process, and the arms will continue to age over time.
