Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)


Brachioplasty (arm lift) is a surgical procedure that:

  • Reduces excess skin that sags downward
  • Tightens and smoothes upper arm supportive tissue
  • Reduces upper arm fat pockets

Dramatic weight fluctuations following bariatric surgery can cause your upper arms to droop and sag. This condition cannot be improved with exercise. Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.

Following your surgery, you can expect smoother, tighter contours almost immediately. 

However, these results will be obscured by swelling and bruising, and a scar will remain where the incision was made. In most cases, arm lift surgery results in long lasting results. However, it is important that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness.
