Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
An arm lift may be appropriate if you have loose or hanging skin and excess fat in the upper arms despite toning exercises, or if you have lost a significant amount of weight.
Incisions hidden in the axilla (underarm) or incisions along the inner arm are necessary to tighten and reshape the upper arm. If skin tone is good, liposuction alone may reshape the arm by removing excess fat.
Generally, this is done as a day-case under general anesthesia.
Light compression garments may be recommended during your recovery to help reduce fluid retention and shape your trimmer arms. Results can be long-term, but weight loss/gain or natural aging may alter your appearance.
