What is the Cost of Arm Lift?

Cost of Arm Lift Surgery
I would suggest you consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. I would try to see insurance can cover the arm lift procedure. In California, I have had success with some insurance policies covering some arm lift or arm reduction surgery.
If insurance is not an option, you will have to pay cash or credit. Prices vary widely depending on surgeon’s experience, geographic region, length of surgery, hospital or surgery fees, etc. The most important thing is to make sure your plastic surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery AND has significant experience in arm lifts. I would suggest you follow my law of 3/50/100. I would suggest you consult with at least 3 plastic surgeons to obtain their fee range. Travel even out of state, if you must. I would insist on seeing post-operative pictures of at least 50 different patients. I would be sure your plastic surgeon has performed personally (not assisted or during their training) at least 100 arm lifts or brachioplasties. Do not elect to have arm lift surgery with the lowest priced and often, least experienced plastic surgeon. Be prepared to pay a little more for an experienced arm lift plastic surgeon. By paying more, you may minimize your risks of complications and expensive revision surgeries.
Good luck with your quest for skinnier arms.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office.

Brachioplasty is a commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure. The cost of brachioplasty is variable depends on several factors, including the surgeons fee, facility fee and anesthesia charges. Fees in the Midwestern United States typically range between $5,000 and $7,000.
Brachioplasty is frequently performed in combination with other cosmetic procedures. Under these circumstances, multiple procedure discounts are usually applicable.

If you recently had a great deal of weight loss, or you just want to get rid of that loose, saggy skin on your arms, then an arm lift is an excellent choice. After the surgery, you will have some bruising and swelling, but after a few weeks you will start seeing the great result. Depending on the facility you choose in which to have your procedure, the prices may vary. Usually an arm lift can start at about $4,500, and may go up from there to include anesthesia, tax, and a facility fee as well.
Cost Factors for Arm Lift, Brachioplasty
The average cost of an Arm lift as Listed By RealSelf as of this writing is about $9000 for a traditional facelift. It is less then that or a limited scar technique.
However, prices vary greatly depending on the amount of skin that is required to be removed as well as the amount of liposuction required.. My recommendation is to first find qualified surgeons that are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery you trust, then compare prices between them. Factors that influence the price include:
1. Location - Will it be performed in a hospital with an overnight stay, an independent out- patient facility or a doctors office?
2. Type of Anesthesia - local, IV sedation or General Anesthesia? Will a board certified anesthesiologist or a nurse anesthetist be used, or an RN?
3. Experience and training of your surgeon. The best trained (and longest) would be a surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
4. Length and Complexity of Surgery

Cost of arm lift (brachioplasty)
The cost of brachioplasty varies from area to area and surgeon to surgeon. In general, you get what you pay for.
That said, there are some effective methods to reduce these costs. I routinely do these procedures in my AAAASF certified office operating suite without general anesthesia. I choose RN sedation (light) vs. anesthesiologist sedation (deep) based on the individual patient.
For reference, our current all inclusive fee for brachioplasty is $4,950 for nurse sedation and $6,000 for anesthesiologist sedation.
