Brachioplasty

Arm lift

Brachioplasty/Arm lift

Arm lift or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin, tightens the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise and arm lift is the first-choice procedure.

The smoother, tighter contours that result from arm lift surgery are visible immediately following your procedure.  The results of arm lift surgery will be long-lasting, provided that the patient maintains a stable weight and general fitness.

Technical points

The surgical procedure takes about 2H.
It can be performed under general anaesthesia or sedation and local anaesthesia.
It can be performed on outpatient or inpatient basis (1 night).

There are different techniques with different scar patterns. Scar can be located in the axilla, in the upper arm or both.
All techniques have advantages and disadvantages that will be discussed with you during the preoperative evaluation.
