Arm lift

The skin of the upper arm may lose its elasticity due to weight loss or ageing. Unfortunately, the resulting excess skin will not go away by exercising. When you find this disturbing, an arm lift, or brachioplasty, can be the solution.

During the arm lift procedure, the excess skin and fat tissue is surgically removed via an incision on the inner arm. The result of this procedure is a tighter skin. A downside of brachioplasty, however, is that it will leave a significant scar. The scar will be on the inside of the arm, but it will be visible.

The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. The procedure consists of the removal of the excess skin on the upper arm and, when present, excess fat tissue. The incision is done between the armpit and the elbow, on the inside of the arm. We use dissolvable stitches to close the incision after which bandages will be placed on the arms. The procedure takes about one hour.
