Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

What Is an Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, can lift and tighten loose skin in the upper arms, resulting in a firmer, more youthful contour. Brachioplasty can be done alone or in conjunction with other body contouring procedures.

Brachioplasty Procedure

Brachioplasty is usually performed in our in-office AAAASF accredited surgical center. The incision length and type is dependent on where the problematic area is that we are addressing. Once determined, your surgeon will discuss which will work best for your procedure.

Common incision areas are on the inside of the arm or on the back of the arm. This depends on your surgeon’s preference and what works best for your individual needs. Your incision may extend from the underarm to just above your elbow. Any extra fat that needs to be addressed may be directly removed or can be treated with liposuction. After your specific issues have been addressed, the skin is smoothed over the new contour of your arm.
