Pricing on brachioplasty
This is always a difficult question to answe as it depends on the location, where the procedure is performed, and extent of the brachioplasty. In the Boca Raton area the fee including OR and Anesthesia fees in the office surgical suite is about $5000 to $7000 dollars including everything.
If you are interested it might be worth it to go on several consultations to see the price range. And remember, give me a great deal on a car or dishwasher, don't short change me on my surgery.

Arm LIft costs can vary
The cost for this type of surgical procedure will vary depending upon the severity of the porblem. Some arm lifts or brachioplasty surgery can be done with shoter scars and under local anesthesia while others require more advanced techniques, longer operative times and general anesthesia. When comparing costs be sure that the entire procedure is being quoted not just the surgeon's fee. In my practice the average range for this procedure is $3,500 to $6,000. We base the cost on the estimated time to complete the procedure.

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.
