Bilateral brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
“The operation has achieved my goals. I am looking forward to wearing sleeveless dresses in the summer.”
BN, Age 71, Taunton, Somerset, Bilateral brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
A Brachioplasty or arm lift removes loose skin from the inside of the inner arm, this is usually combined with liposuction to remove fatty tissue whilst trying to preserve the nerves blood vessels and lymphatics to reduce the risk of complications. The operation will leave visible scars but scars generally fade overtime. You must bear in mind that it is also not possible to completely remove all the excess skin or laxity . The scar will extend into the under-arm area. The scar shown is 8 weeks after surgery.
Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
“It was well worth doing I feel much more confident.”
MS, Age 55, Torquay, Brachioplasty or arm lift
This patient underwent an arm lift or brachioplasty following weight loss. The scars are shown at 2 months but can be expected to fade over the next 12 months or so. This operation is done with a combination of liposuction and skin excision to preserve the nerves, blood vessels and lymphatic channels in the upper arm. It is not uncommon to have some swelling after the procedure which is usually temporary and some numbness over the inner arm which may remain.
