ARM LIFT

Excess fat and loose skin often leave a “flabby” appearance on the upper arms. This area can be challenging to target with diet and exercise and sometimes impossibly due to skin laxity. Therefore, arm Lift surgery or a Brachioplasty is performed to eliminate the stubborn fat and eliminate the batwing appearance. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia; your incision is on the inside or back of your arm.

BENEFITS OF AN ARM LIFT

ELIMINATE LOOSE SKIN ON THE ARMS

During the Brachioplasty procedure, your surgeon tightens and removes the excess skin from your arms.

ELMINATE LOOSE AND FLABBY APPEARANCE

This procedure will help get rid of the batwing look on your arms. Your surgeon removes the excess and flabby skin on your arms, leaving your arms with a more toned and smooth appearance.

CREATE A TONED ARM APPEARANCE

The results of this procedure will bring out your toned arm muscles underneath all the excess skin.

IMPROVE COMFORT AND CONFIDENCE IN CLOTHES

It can often be challenging to find comfortable clothes that you feel confident in when self-conscious about your arm's appearance. This procedure improves your confidence and comfort in clothes; bring out those tank tops again.
