What is an Arm Lift?

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to achieve an improved appearance of the under portion of the upper arm. An arm lift is usually undergone to tighten and smooth the underlying tissue in the arm, reduce excess sagging skin, and reducing the localized pockets of fat in the arm. To perform an arm lift, a surgeon will make a necessary incision generally on the back or inner side of the arm. Then, underlying supportive tissue is tightened and sculpted with internal sutures. Finally, the preexisting skin is smoothed over to match the new contour of the arm.

Why an Arm Lift?

There are several factors that contribute to sagging arms including large fluctuations in ​weight, aging, and hereditary traits. The results of an arm lift are generally long lasting if you maintain a stable weight and stay in good health. You should consider undergoing an arm lift if:

  • You recently went through a large weight loss and would like to remove the excess skin from the under portion of your arm.
  • You’ve noticed an increase in the fat located under your arm as you’ve aged.
  • You are unhappy with the way your arm looks, no matter how much you exercise or diet.
