An arm lift is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of the arm and eliminate fat deposits in the arm, as well as remove a surplus of loose arm skin.
The choice of procedure depends on the exact condition (excess fat deposits, excess loose skin or both) but will involve either liposuction, skin excision or both.
The procedure is carried out as a day case procedure usually under General Anaesthesia, and takes between 1 – 2 hours.
There is typically bruising for up to 3 weeks after which you can happily wear short sleeves, and an end results at about 3 months. Scars are insignificant and managed by our Scar Management programme.
A brachioplasty is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits on the upper arm. This can be caused by age, as the upper arm skin becomes loose and flabby, or may simply be a feature of natural fat distribution and surplus arm skin (often caused by weight loss).
By combining the optimal choice of treatment with my skills and surgical vision, I am able to create the natural ‘invisible’ finish for my patients. I believe in exceptional one to one care and in taking the journey together from the start to finish.
