Brachioplasty

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow.

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits.

If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you. Dr. Derby and Dr. Buchanan can help you get the shapely arms you've always wanted.

An arm lift is performed to:

  • Reduce excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow
  • Reshape your arm to result in smoother skin and contours
  • Result in a more toned and proportionate appearance

Is an Arm Lift Right for You?

Good 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 who do not have medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Non-smokers Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations

Arm Lift Results

The results of arm lift surgery will be long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness, but most of your improvement should be relatively permanent.
