Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

Arm lift surgery greatly improves the shape and contour of the upper arm. The side effect most commonly noted is the scars. Oftentimes, these heal more slowly than other areas and may need further treatments to improve their appearance.

Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure aimed at reshaping and enhancing the appearance of the upper arms. This surgery addresses issues such as sagging skin and excess fat that often occur in the area between the underarm and elbow due to significant weight loss, aging or genetic factors. The primary objective of brachioplasty is not only to improve aesthetics but also to enhance functionality by alleviating discomfort during physical activities caused by excessive skin.

The Basics

During this procedure, incisions are made either on the inside or back side of your arms based on evaluations done during pre-surgical consultations with a plastic surgeon. Through these incisions, surplus fat may be removed using liposuction while loose skin will be excised before tightening what remains for improved contours over newly defined muscles—resulting in more toned-looking limbs overall after recovery from surgery which typically takes several weeks until full results become apparent post-healing period.

Who is a good candidate?

Individuals often choose brachioplasty when they feel self-conscious about their drooping tissues in their upper arms—and seek firmer looking appendages, especially if lifestyle modifications like diet control & exercise have failed to provide satisfactory outcomes alone. It’s particularly favored among those who’ve experienced weight losses where natural elasticity wasn’t sufficient keep up with body changes.
