Arm lift (brachioplasty)

Like at other body parts, the skin on upper arms may become drooping and sagging with age, and especially after a significant weight loss.

The procedure

In the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin and underlying tissue. The arms then get a softer, rejuvenated look and the sagging appearance is removed. Arm lift can be combined with removal of fat in the area. The incision is made on the lower side of the arm, excess skin and fat is removed. The surgery is done under general anaesthesia and takes 1-2 hours.


Immediately after the procedure, elastic garment is applied which is worn for 8 weeks. Hospital stay is recommended for 1-2 nights, followed by home recovery with no physical activity during the following week. You should refrain from physical load for the next 2 months. Ordinary work can be resumed within 2 weeks after surgery. The result is permanent.
