Arm Lift

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, reshapes the under portion of the upper arm from the underarm region to the elbow.Arm Lift (brachioplasty). An arm lift (brachioplasty) usually involves an incision along two areas: the armpit and the inside surface of the arm from the elbow to the armpit, in an inconspicuous location. Excess fat is removed through liposuction. The excessive skin is trimmed away, pulled together and sutured in place. Drainage tubes may be inserted that will require personal home care for up to one week. Dressings will be applied to the incision areas. A compression garment may be required for several weeks after surgery.

If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you.

An arm lift:

  • Reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow
  • Reshapes your arm to result in smoother skin and contours
  • Results in a more toned and proportionate appearance

The decision to have arm lift surgery is extremely personal and you’ll have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.

You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure you will undergo and any risks and potential complications.
