Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

An arm lift (also known as brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. With age, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Brachioplasty can tighten this skin so that patients can look as good as they feel. The incision runs from the underarm area to the elbow. The scar is placed in the inner aspect of the upper arm, facing the side of the chest, to help conceal its presence. In some cases, when the skin excess exists primarily in the upper half of the upper arm, the skin excision can be performed in the underarm area only (‘limited-incision brachioplasty’), avoiding the scar along the inner aspect of the upper arm.

This arm lift procedure can often be combined with liposuction to produce a very favourable upper arm contour. In some patients, a nice improvement in upper arm contour can be accomplished with liposuction alone. The better the upper arm skin tone, the better the liposuction result will be.
