Arm Lift surgery can benefit most people in several ways, including:

  • Improve the appearance of your arms
  • Long lasting results
  • Shapely and toned upper arms
  • Improved self confidence

Our plastics surgeons, Mr Amir Nakhdjevani and Mr Rohit Seth will assist you in identifying whether an arm lift is the best solution for you. They will provide you with the guidance required to see that your experience brings the outcome that you hope for an expect.

Brachioplasty (surgical correction of the upper arm) is required to reduce the excess loose skin and fat. As a result, the length of an arm lift scar can vary depending of the severity of skin laxity. The scar is discretely placed on the inner arm in order to stay hidden from view. The scar starts at the axilla, extending towards the elbow on the inner arm.

If you are a younger patient with good quality elastic skin, we can use Liposuction to remove excess fat from the upper arm and consequently allow the skin to naturally retract. If some of the skin is not fully retracted, a much smaller incision can subsequently be made on the inner arm to remove the excess skin at a secondary procedure.

The procedure is carried out under local or general anaesthetic, depending on the individual circumstances.

After the procedure the arm will swell and it is therefore important to follow the post-operative instructions. You will need to wear a pressure garment following the surgery. This helps to reduce the post-surgery swelling.

The scar can vary depending on the extent of loose skin and excess fat under the skin of the upper arm. It starts from the axilla towards the elbow on the inner arm.

All the stitches are absorbable and hidden under the skin.

You can start gentle exercise after 2 weeks that does not involve your arms and after 4 weeks for your arms.

Most people are able to drive after 2 weeks once the wounds have healed.

Local anaesthetic arm lift is possible in most people. Our plastic surgeons will assess your suitability for this at consultation.

You will have some bruising and swelling after surgery. It is important to keep your arm in a high arm sling and mobilise your hand regularly.
