Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

Brachioplasty ( Arm Lift )

What is a brachioplasty?

A brachioplasty is a surgical procedure that modifies the upper arm’s back, from the arm to the elbow. Another name for it is an arm lift. Extra skin and tissue are removed. Your upper arm seems smoother as a result.
A person’s skin gradually extends with significant weight increase. Your skin might not have the suppleness to bounce back if you lose a lot of weight. This may result in more tissue folds on the skin. These are probably on your upper thighs, lower abdomen, and under your arm and chin. These alterations might occur following significant weight loss through weight-loss surgery.

Frequently, weight-loss surgery is followed by this kind of procedure. The majority of patients who have undergone weight-loss surgery are considering body-reshaping procedures. Brachioplasty is frequently performed concurrently with other surgeries by surgeons. These could include body contouring around the inner thighs, beneath the chin, or across the waist.

A cosmetic or aesthetic surgeon removes excess tissue from behind your upper arm during this procedure. Your arm will either be sliced on the inside or the rear by your surgeon. He or she will cut away any excess fat and skin folds. The remaining tissue will subsequently be sewn back together by your surgeon. As a result, the contour is smoother. Additionally, this could help your upper arm muscles tone.Occasionally, the surgeon also removes excess tissue from the chest’s side. To aid with contouring, the surgeon may additionally do liposuction in the affected area during the procedure.

For whom is this technique intended?

If your upper arms are sagging or drooping, brachioplasty surgery can be beneficial for you. When you raise your arms, this area might resemble bat wings with a skin flap hanging down.

This could happen as a result of:
alterations in skin elasticity brought on by aging.
keeping a healthy lifestyle and losing a significant amount of weight, either with or without obesity surgery.
possessing specific genetic traits that lead to skin sagging.
lymphatic swelling.


Long-lasting outcomes from arm lift surgery are possible as long as you keep up a consistent weight and level of general fitness. While some firmness loss is normal as you age, the most of your improvement should be quite lasting. You must do as your doctor says if you want your surgery to go well.
