Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Also known as “brachioplasty,” arm lift surgery reshapes the upper arms to remove excess skin and produce more slender contours. Weight fluctuations and natural aging cause the arm skin to stretch and become loose. Fat deposits often accumulate in the upper arms as well. Over time, these conditions can lead to excess skin and tissue hanging off the upper arms.


Arm lift surgery improves the contours of the upper arms by:

  • Removing excess skin
  • Eliminating extra fat deposits
  • Tightening underlying tissues
  • Achieving improved arm definition and shape

The Benefits of Arm Lift Surgery

Wear the Clothing You Want

Arm lift patients who previously felt uncomfortable wearing clothing that revealed their arms report that they love being able to wear sleeveless and short-sleeved tops without worrying about the appearance of their arms.

Get Back Your Confidence

After undergoing arm lift surgery, patients experience a boost in confidence and self-esteem knowing that their arms are more comfortable, slender, and toned.

Achieve Enduring Results

As long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle and avoids significant weight gain, the results of an arm lift procedure are long lasting. The arms will continue to age naturally over time.
