Reshape your arms for smoother skin and contours.
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow.
An arm lift, also known as Brachioplasty, reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow, reshapes your arm to result in smoother skin and contours, and results in a more toned and proportionate appearance.
After substantial weight loss, weight gain, or simply from the effects of aging, the skin of the upper arms can become inelastic, loose, and flabby.
Ideal candidates for an arm lift include adults with significant upper arm skin laxity, adults of any age whose weight is relatively stable and who are not significantly overweight.
Brachioplasty removes that excess skin and fat. Patients who have significant amounts of fat may want to consider combining the procedure with liposuction. ThermiTight is a non-surgical radiofrequency modality that can be used to enhance skin tightening in the healing process and improve final results.
Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits. If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you.

As with all plastic surgery, a thorough health assessment and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Your understanding of procedures, routines, and risks is essential to a successful final result. Following your consultation, we continue our discussion at the preoperative appointment.
The success and safety of your Brachioplasty depends very much on your complete candidness during your initial consultation. Your doctor will ask a number of questions about your health, desires, and lifestyle.
