Arm Lift / Brachioplasty

What is brachioplasty?

Brachioplasty (arm lift) is a surgical procedure performed to remove the loose, hanging skin that often develops on the underside of the upper arm as a result of aging, weight loss or weight gain. Brachioplasty is ideal for patients who have an excessive amount of hanging skin and/or fat that does not respond to diet and exercise.

What to expect during the procedure

During brachioplasty, an incision is made along the inside of the upper arm. Excess fat is removed. Excess skin is removed. Brachioplasty is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation and, depending on the amount of skin and fat that are removed, takes 1 hour. Patients are able to return home the same day as surgery.

who is an ideal candidate?

For a patient who needs only a small amount of skin and fat removed, a minimal-incision arm lift may be performed. A less invasive way to remove excess fat and tissue, it requires only a few small incisions near the underarm.
