Brachioplasty

Arm Lifts

With age, and also quite common after substantial weight loss, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby and is often referred to as 'bat wings'. An arm lift or arm reduction, also known as a Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove this loose skin and the excess fat deposits that can form in the upper arm. In some cases liposuction can be used for this alone or in conjunction with an arm lift.

During the operation, cuts are made on the inner and under surfaces of the arm, sometimes from the arm pit to as low as the elbow. Excess skin and fat are removed and the remaining skin is stretched and stitched back together. The operation generally results in slimmer, smoother upper arms. However, there will be visible scarring that may extend from the armpit to the elbow.
