What is a mini arm lift?

A mini arm lift, otherwise known as a mini brachioplasty, is more suited to patients who do not have much excess skin and fat in the upper arm.

In this procedure the surgeon will make a single crescent-shaped incision under the armpit, which may also extend in a T-line into the arm.

What are the various arm lift types?

There are three different types of arm lifts offered here at Cadogan Clinic:

How does a mini arm lift differ from an arm lift?

A mini arm lift will result in less scarring than a normal arm lift. This surgery is more suited to patients with little excess skin and fat in the upper arm area.

Can I have a mini arm lift?

Mini arm lifts are suitable if you don’t have much sagging skin or fat in the affected area. Otherwise you may have to undergo a different procedure. Our expert surgeons here at the Cadogan Clinic will talk you through the options available to you.

What does a mini arm lift involve?

In this procedure the surgeon will make a single crescent-shaped incision under the armpit, which may also extend in a T-line into the arm. The skin will then be removed and tighten the underlying tissue. Liposuction is also an option to remove the excess fat from the upper arm area.

Liposuction only is most common in younger patients whose skin is still relatively elastic, whilst skin excision only procedures are most common among skinnier patients who have already lost a certain amount of weight.

How long does a mini arm lift last?

As long as you maintain a healthy body weight post-surgery, the results should be permanent.

However the ageing process will continue and skin laxity will increase over time. But as the surgery helps to slow down this process, it will be many years before this becomes noticeable again.

If you have further questions about arm lifts, including which type of surgery is right for you to help you reach your body goals, please book an appointment with one of our expert surgeons here at the Cadogan Clinic.
