Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

What is an Arm Lift?

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise. Dr. Manjarrez-Cortez performs an Arm lift (Brachioplasty) to surgically reshape the arms.

What is an Arm Lift Procedure Used to Treat?

An arm lift, or Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:

  • Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
  • Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
  • Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Who is a Candidate for an Arm Lift?

In general, arm lift candidates include:

  • Adults with significant upper arm skin laxity
  • Adults of any age whose weight is relatively stable and who are not significantly overweight
  • Healthy individuals without medical conditions that impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Nonsmokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations

How is an Arm Lift Procedure Performed?

Excessive skin is removed, sometimes in conjunction with a liposuction procedure to remove fat from the arms. For the removal of large amounts of skin, an incision is required that runs from near the elbow to the armpit. The incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location (inner arm toward the back), but some scarring will always be visible. More moderate skin removal is sometimes possible with a smaller incision which is limited to the armpit area to try to keep the scar better hidden.


Does a Brachioplasty Require Anesthesia?

The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia.
