In brief: Very nice change

An arm lift or brachioplasty can create a significant change in the appearance of the upper arm. There is a scar on the inner aspect of the arm that usually heals very.
The procedure may be carried out under a local anesthetic ofr a general anesthetic well

In brief: Arm Lift

Arm lifts (brachioplasties) can truly the improve the contour of the upper arms.
Patients who have an abundance of excess upper arm skin often will notice the most significant difference after the operation. The trade off for better arm contour is permanent scars that do fade quite a bit with time. The vast majority of patients undergoing arm lifts are very happy with the cosmetic result.

In brief: Depends

An arm lift, like any body contouring procedure, is designed to remove excess tissue.
However the scars needed to achieve this can be long. We do our best to camouflage or hide these scars. Although an arm lift can successfully improve contour, the scars are less able to be hidden unless covered by a long sleeve shirt. However the results can be dramatic and favorable.

In brief: Arm Lift

Patients that have lost a large amount of weight generally have loose skin.
The arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) can eliminate the appearance of "bat wings", reduce the excess accumulation of fat which can give the arms a flabby appearance, and restore a slimmer, firmer appearance to the arms.

In brief: Arm Lift

An arm lift is a very effective way to improve the appearance of saggy arms or bat wings using a hidden incision that usually heals very well.

If you have a major amount of loose arm skin, then an arm lift might be right for you. For most people that have "just a little" looseness, the scar isn't worth the improvement.

In brief: Depends.

Arm lifting surgery is a very patient pleasing operation for the appropriately selected patient.
For patients who present with significant skin/adipose tissue of the upper arms ( “bat wings”), arm lifting surgery may be an excellent operation. The downside with the operation are the scars which may be poor and require revisionary surgery. “hiding” the scar is an important part during planning.

Arm lift surgery,or Brachioplasty. Can substantially improve the contour of the arm- the scar from Brachioplasty can widen and thicken
