Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

Body > Brachioplasty

Brachioplasty or arm lift is a surgical procedure where excess skin and fat is removed from the arms. Arm lifts can be customized to the needs and constitution of the individual.

Excessively large arms can be the result of heredity. Excessive skin and fat can be caused by excessive weight loss, and result in hanging loose skin of the arms.  Many patients stop wearing short sleeves or sleeveless dresses, and resort to hiding it in baggy clothes and long sleeves.

Patients seeking arm lift or arm shape improvement can be normal weight, but need a slight improvement in the shape and contour of the arms.

Most arm lifts are performed after significant weight loss and deflation of the arms resulting in hanging skin.

Excess fat with tight, firm skin is best treated by liposuction.  Minimal or limited excess skin is treated by short scar arm lift, or just a limited scar in the arm pit. Large laxities of skin require full scar arm lift extending to the elbow. The scar is hidden in the inside of the arm.

Recovery is fairly quick with restriction of heavy activity for three weeks.
