Upper Arm Lift

Service Description

An upper arm lift, or brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates a “bat wing” appearance under the arm.

Removing the excess skin caused by weight loss or natural aging can tighten loose skin that extends from the underarm area to the elbow; liposuction is sometimes used in combination to achieve the best results. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful upper-arm-lift surgery and are pleased with the results.

When to Consider an Upper Arm Lift

  • If your weight is normal, but you feel your shape is marred by underarm laxity.
  • If you have lost a massive amount of weight and are left with excess upper-arm skin and fat that may resemble bat wings.
  • If you are willing to accept a scar in exchange for shapelier arms.

Considerations

Pros

  • You will look much better in form-fitting clothes.
  • You will have increased confidence and a better self-image.
  • You will be able to wear short-sleeve or sleeveless clothing without feeling self-conscious.

Cons

  • You will have visible scars along the insides of your arms, extending from the armpit to the elbow.
  • If your sagging under arm skin is not excessive, an upper arm lift may not be worth the resulting scars (in this case, consider limited-incision brachioplasty or liposuction).
  • Your surgeon will not be able to predict exactly how your scars will look.
These are the top three pros and cons to weigh when considering an upper arm lift. If you want to focus on what is unique to you, please consult with your aesthetic plastic surgeon
