If you are lacking in the confidence to wear short sleeved tops and are looking to renew your self-esteem, then Brachioplasty (arm lift) surgery can give you a new lease of life with slimmer, toned arms. The procedure is ideal for those who have excess loose skin on their upper arms, or those who have recently lost weight.

The surgery will not only tighten and smooth out your arms where pockets of fat in the upper arm region use to lay but will also reduce excess sagging of skin.

Why you might need Brachioplasty

If you are carrying excess skin on your upper arms after losing weight and want to get rid of your bingo wings, then you may require an arm lift. This is a common problem for both men and women who have recently lost large amounts of weight. Brachioplasty surgery is most effective when a patient is at their target weight.

What are the benefits of Brachioplasty?

Following weight loss or even pregnancy, achieving your body goals can be a difficult task. Even then, the excess skin that remains despite your hard work and self-discipline can be an issue in itself. Some of the benefits of an arm lift include:

  • Slim and toned upper arms with reduced pockets of fat
  • Renewed self-esteem and confidence
  • The visibility of scars is limited due to the area of the incision

What does Brachioplasty involve?

Brachioplasty involves the removal of excess skin from the inner arm, or where the scar will be less obvious, by making an incision which may extend from the inner elbow to the underarm.

An extension of the scar across the armpit may be required for large excesses of skin, while smaller areas can allow for limitation of the scar to the armpit only, which is known as a mini brachioplasty. If you are looking for arms that are more slender, with a sculpted appearance, then you may wish to consider liposuction. All your available options can be discussed at your consultation.

Recovery Time

Following surgery, you will be required to spend one or two nights at the hospital for observation, and are advised to take a couple of weeks off work post-surgery. It is advised that you avoid any heavy lifting and strenuous activity during this time.

In the weeks following your treatment, you will be given follow-up appointments with your consultant, have any stitches removed and dressings changed, as well as any required medicine prescribed.
