An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, entails several factors affecting it cost. This procedure is an effective method of removing some of that extra flesh on the underside of your arms sometimes referred to as "bat wings." They will make an incision on the arm, pull the skin tighter, and trim away excess skin to give arms a thinner, more defined look.
The price of an arm lift can range anywhere from $5,000-6,500 with three categories majorly impacting the cost of the procedure:
- Arm Lift Cost Factor #1: Anesthesia Fee — Local anesthesia numbs a certain part of the body with the patient retaining consciousness during the procedure. General anesthesia leaves the patient unconscious, numbing the entire body. Local anesthesia is considered safer and less expensive. However, depending on the amount of skin that needs to be tightened and removed the surgeon may opt for general anesthesia to prevent any pain to the patient during the procedure.
- Arm Lift Cost Factor #2: Facility Fee — This will include operating costs as well as costs for any equipment used during the procedure.
- Arm Lift Cost Factor #3: Professional Fee — This portion of the cost covers the surgeon's paycheck. . The professional fee varies with the degree of experience of the surgeon and will usually start around $3000. More experienced surgeons will generally charge more for their services. To ensure the quality of results, we recommend that patients wait until they can afford a more practiced hand.
The facility and anesthetic fees are generally around $750 to $1,000 each.
