Brachioplasty (Arm lift)
An arm lift might be an option for you if you wish you had slimmer and more toned looking upper arms. Brachioplasty (also known as an ‘arm lift’) may be the right body contouring procedure for you.
As part of the natural aging process, skin gradually loses its elasticity. As a result, the skin settles into folds and wrinkles. Along the arms, loss of elasticity can lead to hanging skin that may be nicknamed “bat wings.” Weight loss can accentuate this issue.
Our procedure is different because to reduce scarring and to help you get the absolute best results, a few weeks after your Arm Lift, we also have you get scar reduction treatments at our office.
Arm lift procedures reshape the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm to the elbow. It can help reduce sagging skin, reduce fat pockets and tighten the tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm.

Good arm lift candidates include those who have significant upper arm skin laxity; those who have relatively stable weight and are not significantly overweight; those without medical conditions that impair healing; and those with a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
