An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, is a procedure for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and, as a result, complain of loose, excess hanging skin on their upper arm. Patients come to us unhappy with their appearance in sleeveless dresses, bathing suits, and short sleeve shirts. The skin sags when it loses tone or elasticity. Whatever the cause of the the problem, we can reliably reduce the size of the upper arms, tighten the skin and restore your confidence.
Because the scars generally run from arm pit to elbow I discourage patients with minimal laxity from choosing this treatment. “Mini Scar” procedures almost never achieve much of a before and after difference, and for that reason I do not perform them. But for patients with true laxity and excess skin, brachioplasty can be amazing. The scar extends into the arm pit to tighten the axillary region, and as a happy coincidence, the axillary hair and sweat glands are removed-think of the time and money you will save on shaving and deodorant!
