Arm Lift

Overview

Also known as Brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow.

Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. Incisions are generally placed on the inside of the arm, or on the back of the arm, and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. If fat is to be reduced during your arm lift, it will be excised or treated with liposuction.


What to Expect

Your incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures, or stitches that will be removed within 1-2 weeks following your arm lift.

Depending on your specific conditions, 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.

After Surgery / Recovery

The smoother, tighter contours that result from brachioplasty are apparent almost immediately following your procedure, although initial results will be somewhat obscured by swelling and bruising. Your new, shapely and toned upper arm is dramatically improved both in appearance and feel.
