Medically known as brachioplasty, an upper arm lift is a cosmetic procedure performed with an objective to reshape, tighten loose skin and remove excess aft skin and tissues that might create an appearance similar to “bat wing” under the arm. Removing excess skin and fat consequential to natural ageing process and weight loss can tighten loose skin extending from the under am area to the elbow. Often people look for options in which upper arm lift is possible without surgery. Discuss the same with the cosmetic surgeon. In some cases, the procedure is performed in conjunction with the liposuction for achieving better results.

When can you consider upper arm lift surgery?

  • If you have no problem with a scar consequential to this surgery
  • If you have normal body weight however the shape of your arms is marred by underarm laxity
  • If you have lost weight and are left with excess deposits of fat and skin under arm
  • How is the surgery performed?

  • Marking would be made on the elbows, armpits and arms. The direction, length and location of these incision lines would be dictated by the type of upper arm lift you would undergo.
  • You would be given either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
  • Necessary incisions will be made for removing excess fat and skin.
  • The incisions might be completely hidden with the armpits or extended downwards the inside of the arms in the discreet locations possible.
  • The cosmetic surgeon might also recommend liposuction as an additional procedure for removing excess fat.
  • After removing fat and skin, incisions will be bring together for providing a smoother and firmer arm contour.
  • The skin is smoothed over the new contour of the arm.

    What would be the upper arm lift scars and incisions are like?

    When it comes to the scars of the upper arm lift, they vary on the basis of the elasticity of the skin and the amount of tissues a patient has. As a matter of fact, patients who undergo a standard upper arm lift that leads to larger scars are satisfied with the outcomes.

    Limited incision brachioplasty

    In this method, incision scars are limited to the underarms areas.


    Incisions made for liposuction method are small, thus scars are small too. Most scars fade over time and thus are barely noticeable.

    Standard brachioplasty

    Incisions are made on the inside of the arm and might extend from the axilla that is underarm to above the elbow.

    Extended brachioplasty

    This type of upper arm lift is similar to a standard upper arm lift procedure except that the incision made is extended along the arm just down to the body for including fatty tissue and loose skin that may be under the arm along the side of the chest wall.

    As far as cost for the brachioplasty is considered, you can be assured of getting the most affordable treatment through our association with the cosmetic surgeons. Make sure that you adhere to the instructions given by the surgeon for fast recovery.
