An arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of your lower upper arms. During an arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, excess skin and fat between the armpit and elbow are removed. The remaining skin is placed back over the repositioned contours to create a more toned appearance.

Why Should It Be Done?

As you age, the skin on your upper arms changes – sagging and loosening. Significant weight loss can also cause the lower parts of your upper arms to sag. While exercise can strengthen and improve muscle tone in the upper arm, it cannot address excess skin that has lost its elasticity. If the lower parts of your upper arms are sagging, you can choose to have an arm lift. An arm lift can also improve your body image.


By removing loose skin, an arm lift can give your upper arms a more toned appearance. Arm lift results are generally long-lasting. However, keep in mind that as you get older, your skin will naturally lose some firmness and some sagging may occur. Maintaining a steady, healthy weight can help you maintain your results.
