Arm Tuck, also called arm lift or brachioplasty, is a surgery when this loose skin is removed to give a more youthful appearance to the arms. The arms can have loose, sagging skin after weight loss or with increasing age due to loss of elasticity in the skin. Toning and shaping of the arm muscles can give a good foundation for an attractive arm but at this time, there is no other way to decrease the sagging appearance of arms skin other than removing it surgically.
Arm Tuck Procedure
Dr. Nazarian places the incisions on the inner aspect of the arm so that the scars are not visible when the arms are next to the body. While there is no great place on the arm to place a scar, this is the least visible area to place it. This surgery, like all body contouring surgeries, is a trade-off: a scar for improved contour.
Recovery time is essential after having a brachioplasty. Most patients experience a burning sensation in the underarm area. Some temporary or permanent numbness can also be experienced. The surgery typically takes 4 hours and one drain will be placed per arm. These drains will be removed 3-5 days after surgery.

She is wonderful and very caring thru the whole process. Thanks Dr.for changing my appearance and helping me with every question I had. I totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent Dr. If I would of known about her before, I would of done this procedure years ago.This is my first time writing a review, but I had to share this experience because I know there are people looking for a good Dr they can trust. I am truly very happy with Dr. Sheila Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
