Arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure for removing excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow. It is performed to reshape the under portion of the upper arm to reveal a more youthful and toned appearance.

You are a good candidate for an arm lift surgery if:

  • You are physically and emotionally healthy
  • You have realistic expectations of the procedure
  • You do not smoke
  • Your weight is stable
  • You have significant upper arm skin laxity
  • You are deeply bothered by the sagging skin under your arms
  • You want to improve your arm profile
Initially, you may feel shy to disclose your goals and expectations. But in order to achieve the result you are aiming for the lines of communication between you and your doctors must be open. Don’t hesitate to air your concerns so that your doctor can explain in detail all the important aspects of the procedure.

Benefits of arm lift:

  • Improved self-image
  • More toned arms
  • Healthy and younger looking arm profile
  • Thinner arm contour
  • Increased physical appeal
  • Improved confidence in wearing sleeveless garments
Like other cosmetic surgery, an arm lift is done under local or general anaesthesia. The type of incision that will be used based on a number of things. Your doctor can offer best judgement on what incision pattern is the most suitable for you after conducting thorough assessment of your medical history, skin type, healing capacity, and the amount and location of excess skin to be removed.
