Information about our Arm Lift surgery
 
What is arm lift surgery?
An arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the under portion of your upper arms.

During an arm lift — also known as brachioplasty — excess skin and fat are removed from between the armpit and elbow. The remaining skin is placed back over the newly repositioned contours to create a more toned look.

Why have an arm lift procedure?
As you get older, the skin on your upper arms changes — sagging and becoming loose. Significant weight loss also can cause the undersides of your upper arms to droop.

While exercise can strengthen and improve muscle tone in the upper arm, it cannot resolve the problem of excess skin that has lost elasticity.

You might choose to have an arm lift if the undersides of your upper arms are sagging. An arm lift might also boost your body image.

How is the procedure performed?
Incision length and pattern during arm lift surgery depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, as well as the best judgment of your plastic surgeon.
 
Incisions are generally placed on the inside of the arm or on the back of the arm, depending on the surgeon’s preference, and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. Excess fat may be directly excised or treated with liposuction.

Depending on your specific condition, incisions may be more limited. Then, underlying supportive tissue is tightened and reshaped with internal sutures. Finally, the skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.
