Ideal treatment for:

  • Removing loose or saggy skin on the underside of the arms due to weight loss, age or hereditary factors
  • Eliminating pockets of excess, stubborn fat
  • Toning the upper arms
  • Contouring the shape of the arms
  • Tightening loose skin, especially after liposuction

Contour and tone the shape of your arms and remove excess skin and fat - including "tuckshop arms" for tighter, slimmer upper arms.

An arm lift can help restore your confidence and allow you to feel comfortable in your own skin - perhaps even wearing clothes you haven't enjoyed in years!

How it works

Brachioplasty (or arm lift) involves an incision in the armpit and down along the inside of the arm, through which excess skin and fat are removed. Because the arm is a cylinder, tightening the skin on the inner arm tightens the skin all the way around the arm. Brachioplasty is often combined with arm liposuction to remove excess fat and further improve the contour.


Reduce "tuckshop arms"

The upper arms are a common problem area for loose, sagging or "flabby" skin, but this can be removed with an arm lift for tighter, toned and better defined arms.

Contour your body shape

Tightening and slimming your upper arms can help to achieve a more symmetrical body shape, helping clothes to fit better and allowing you to feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Enhance weight loss results

An arm lift is an ideal treatment following dramatic weight loss or liposuction, as it removes the excess skin that often can't be shed through diet and exercise.

Frequently asked questions

Will I have scarring after an arm lift?

Generally, incisions extend from the axilla down the inside of the arm towards the elbow and are placed in the most inconspicuous place as possible for optimal scarring results.

How much downtime do I need after an arm lift?
Read More

Following the procedure, you should be prepared with help at home and plan for at least two to three weeks off work, with normal physical activities and exercise only being possible after at least four to six weeks.
