What is an Arm Lift?

Published on October 26th, 2017

The Arm Lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the upper arms. Many people struggle with their upper arm appearance as they get older, particularly after a significant weight loss when there is excess, sagging skin as is often seen in bariatric surgery patients. The Arm Lift, also called Brachioplasty, is performed with an incision that runs along the inside of the upper arm from the elbow to the armpit—it is important to understand that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar that will fade over time, but never completely go away.

The Arm Lift procedure can create a smoother, better contoured version of your arms. Ideal candidates for the Arm Lift are in good mental and physical health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations for the procedure and results possible.
