Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Are you self-conscious about the appearance of your arms? Do you feel your arms are too big or there is a little too much sagging skin? Many people are uncomfortable wearing shorter sleeves or tighter tops due to the size of their arms. This can be a result of a persons age, pregnancy or minor to massive weight loss. Lots of the time, exercise can only tone the underlying muscle. It cannot do anything to tighten the already loose skin and eliminate those so called “Bat Wings”.

How is an Arm Lift surgery performed?

An arm lift surgery removes the excess skin and fat in the area in order to achieve a more contoured or proportional upper arm.  The incisions will be made on the inner part of your arm, and extend from your elbow to armpit. In time, these scars become virtually invisible. This surgery can be done under either local or general anaesthesia   It usually takes anywhere from 1-2 hours, depending on the work required and you will be able to go home shortly after the procedure is completed.

What’s the recovery period after an Arm Lift?

As with most cosmetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s health.

Following your surgery, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions, and a compression garment will need to be worn to minimize swelling and bruising. You will be able to return to work within 1-2 weeks, taking into consideration not to do any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for the first 4-6 weeks.

Are there any risks to an Arm Lift?

During your consultation, Dr. Lockwood or Dr. Islur and their expert medical team will clearly outline all of the necessary precautions you need to take, as well as any postoperative limitations you should follow.

Dr. Anthony P. Lockwood and Dr. Avi Islur’s staff take every necessary precaution to minimize any risk involved with all surgeries or cosmetic procedures.
