An arm lift, or Brachioplasty, removes excess skin between the armpit and elbow, reducing chafing and allowing your clothes to fit better. The procedure is safe, highly effective, and our expert team will make careful and precise incisions, resulting in the best possible outcome.
With aging comes sagging skin, softening of muscle tone, and a depletion of fat volume. Many individuals with loose skin around their arms can often feel very self-conscious about their arms’ appearance. Additionally, this excess skin often rubs together and chafes. An arm lift provides a way to tighten loose skin and enhance the appearance of your arms.
Before & Afters
Arm Lift FAQ
Arm lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make an incision between the armpit and elbow in a location that will best hide the scar. The excess skin is removed, and drain tubes may be inserted. Your incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures or stitches that will be removed within one to two weeks following your arm lift.
The procedure typically takes around three to four hours to perform.
Swelling and bruising are to be expected following arm lift surgery but will dissipate over time. You may be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks following your procedure to minimize swelling and support the healing tissues.
Your surgeon will provide you with a comprehensive list of post-operative instructions to make the process as smooth as possible. Most patients can resume normal activities and return to work after approximately ten days.
The smoother contour will be apparent almost immediately but it can take several months before you start to see the full results of your arm lift.
