Arm Lift Liposuction Surgery
Our Price: $4,800 USD
An Arm Lift or Arm Tuck, known as a Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms.
As we age, the tissue in the arms relaxes and with the help of gravity and weight loss, can start to sag. This can be a big problem for women, who store excess fat in their upper arms and don’t have the muscle tone to maintain good arm definition. Whether the skin has been stretched by age or gain and loss, it cannot be improved by exercise; surgery is the only answer.

Most patients seeking an Arm Lift are individuals who have lost a lot of weight following bariatric surgery such as gastric bypass or gastric banding. While patients reap significant health benefits and improved self-esteem from the weight loss, the dramatic loss of weight can cause sagging skin to hang from the arms and other parts of the body.

The incision length and pattern of your arm lift will depend on the amount of skin being removed. Incisions usually begin either on the inside of the arm or on the back of the arm, and will extend from the underarm to just above the elbow. Once the incision is made, any excess fat will be removed using liposuction.
In certain specific conditions, incisions may be more limited. If excess skin is located within two inches of the armpit, our surgeon can pull up this excess skin into the armpit and tuck it away, a procedure called an axillary Brachioplasty or mini arm tuck. Underlying supportive tissues may also be tightened and reshaped with internal sutures, finishing by smoothing the skin over the new contour of your arm.
In some cases, our patients are not candidates for an Arm Tuck Surgery, but they can be for other types of cosmetic surgeries.
- Patients with predominantly excess fat are much better served with first undergoing liposuction alone, without an Arm Lift.
- Patients with hidradenitis suppurative an ongoing, persistent infection of the sweat glands in the armpits – likewise should not have an arm lift surgery until the condition has been appropriately treated.
- Women who have had a radical mastectomy or other extensive breast cancer surgical procedure should be aware that after an Arm Lift they can develop chronic arm swelling.
At the end of your surgery, dressings will be applied to the incisions. A drain tube may be temporarily placed under the skin. You will have a special compression garment on your arm to help the skin adhere to the tissue underneath. You should be allowed to leave after a brief stay in the recovery room.
You may experience moderate pain after surgery. A few days of acetaminophen and/or ibuprofen will likely be sufficient. Aspirin should be avoided as it increases the risk of bleeding and bruising.
Benefits of Arm Lift Surgery
Arm Lift surgery has numerous benefits and its increasing popularity as a cosmetic surgery procedure is no accident. Among the benefits of the surgery, are:
- Patienta will usually experience a thinner contour to the arms, creating a generally more youthful appearance.
- The new structure of the arm tissue provides improved balance and proportion in the contour of the arm.
- Patients have greater choice in the clothes they wear.
- Improved confidence.
- Improved self-esteem.
Risks of Arm Lift Surgery
The most common risks associated with this type of surgery include:
- Bad reactions to anesthesia.
- Excessive bleeding.
- Blood clots.
- Possible asymmetry or irregularities.
- Possible numbness.
The recovery period after an arm lift generally is one to two weeks. During the first week after surgery, you must avoid strenuous activity, including bending and lifting. The incision locations must be protected from impact, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. The swelling will be mild to moderate, and peaks at two to three days. You may return to work in a week, and resume exercise after two weeks.
More strenuous activities and contact sports can be resumed after a month. This procedure will leave scars. For a mini arm tuck, the scar is a small, crescent-shaped line hidden in the armpit. The scar for a standard arm tuck, however, is a permanent scar extending the length of the upper arm, from the armpit to the elbow. If the scar is placed on the inner side of the arm, it will be hidden when the arms are in a normal pose.
The severity of the scar is difficult to predict, but will be worsened if recovery instructions are not followed. In any event, patients must be aware that visible scars will be the tradeoff for their smaller and firmer upper arms.
