Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

Arm lifts are usually performed in people who have excessive skin in their upper arms; often referred to by patients as “bat-wings”.  This can occur after substantial weight loss, weight gain, or from the effects of aging.   Often, the skin is not only aesthetically an issue with patients; it also rubs against the body, causing skin irritation.  Arm lifts remove the excess skin and fat, leaving behind a thinner arm.

General anesthesia is used for patient comfort. Incisions are generally placed on the inside of the arm, or on the back of the arm, and may extend from the underarm to just above the elbow. Incision length depends on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed, and may be more limited if less skin needs to be resected.

The smoother, tighter contours that result from an arm lift are apparent almost immediately following your procedure, although initial results will be somewhat obscured by swelling and bruising. Your new, shapely and toned upper arm is dramatically improved both in appearance and feel.

If you are interested in an arm lift, feel free to ask Dr. Mehta about your options.
