Arm Lift Plastic Surgery

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.

Considerations:
  • 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.
Am I a good candidate for an upper arm lift?

After losing a significant amount of weight and embarking on a program of vigorous exercise, you may find that you still have loose, hanging underarm skin that resembles bat wings. Although you can improve your upper-arm appearance with exercise, this redundant underarm skin remains a problem that does not improve with exercise. The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider an upper arm lift:

  • You have lost the weight you desire, but are left with redundant underarm skin.
  • You are an adult with significant upper arm skin laxity due to aging.
  • Your weight is relatively stable and you are not significantly overweight.
  • You are a healthy individual with no medical conditions that could impair healing or increase surgery risks.
  • You are a nonsmoker.
  • You are committed to a healthy diet and lifestyle.

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
