Arm lift (brachioplasty) is for patients with poor skin elasticity and many times is associated with weight loss. Their complaints are typically a flapping of the arm skin and inability to wear blouses which would reveal the drooping skin.View Before & After Gallery
The surgery essentially removes and recontours the excess skin and fat but is a tradeoff for the scar which may extend from the axilla(armpit) to near the elbow. In limited excess , it can be done with the scar hidden within the axilla. In patients with excellent skin elasticity but excess fat, liposuction with tiny scars is an option.
Arm lift surgery improves the contours of the upper arms by:
- Removing excess skin
- Eliminating stubborn fat deposits
- Tightening the underlying tissues
- Achieving better definition and shape
The Benefits of Arm Lift Surgery
Wear the Clothing You Want
Arm lift patients who previously felt uncomfortable wearing clothing that revealed their arms report that they love being able to wear sleeveless and short-sleeved tops without worrying about the appearance of their arms.
Get Back Your Confidence
After undergoing arm lift surgery, patients experience a boost in confidence and self-esteem knowing that their arms are more slender, toned, and attractive.
As long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle, the results of an arm lift procedure are generally permanent. The arms will continue to age naturally over time.
