A frustrating side effect of losing weight or getting older is the appearance of loose skin. At The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer upper arm lift surgery (also known as brachioplasty) as an option for people who cannot manage to tone and tighten their arms with diet and exercise. Lax skin from the elbow to the upper arm is common, particularly for people who are older or have lost weight. An arm lift removes this unwanted skin, often known as "bat wings." Dr. Husam Elias, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Pasadena, CA, is very skilled in fat removal and skin tightening surgeries. If you want to learn more information about how brachioplasty can correct the shape of your arms, please contact us for an appointment at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery.

All of our plastic surgery procedures begin with a personal consultation. This allows Dr. Elias to create a customized treatment approach, determining cost, goals for surgery, and optimal surgical techniques based on your unique needs and budget. Performed under general anesthesia, an arm lift removes fat under the arm between the armpit and elbow via an incision. Dr. Elias will then rearrange muscle tissue and affix the remaining skin in a flattering position. If you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle, your brachioplasty results should be long-lasting. This procedure is an excellent opportunity to build confidence and take back control of your physique.

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
