Upper Arm Lift

See More: Body

Brachioplasty (commonly referred to as an arm lift) is a procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arm.

Brachioplasty is performed to create a firmer and dramatic improvement in the appearance of the upper arm contour. As a result of a brachioplasty you will be left with a scar from the armpit to the elbow which will reduce in appearance over time, but may not completely diminish.

A brachioplasty can be combined with any body contouring procedure for optimal results.

Arm Lift

How is a Brachioplasty performed?

Brachioplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure that can be performed in your plastic surgeon's accredited office-based facility, an ambulatory surgical facility or hospital. An incision is usually made from the armpit to the elbow along the inside of the arm. Other smaller incisions can be used depending on the severity of the redundant skin. Skin and fat are removed and the skin is stretched together and stitched.

This procedure takes approximately 2 hours, but may vary depending on the complexity of the lift.

What to expect during the recovery period:

Discomfort, bruising and swelling are normal and can be controlled with medication. There may be some numbness in the areas treated. Feeling will return in 6-8 weeks.

Sutures may be removable or absorbable. You'll need to return to your plastic surgeon's office for all follow up visits.

You may return to light activities and work 5-7 days post-surgery with very limited lifting and resume full activities 4-6 weeks post-surgery. It can take up to 8-12 months to see how the scars will heal.

A compression garment must be worn up to 3 weeks post-surgery.
