Arm Lift Surgery

An arm lift is done to remove excess skin from the upper arm area.


An arm lift is done to remove excess skin from the upper arm area. An upper arm lift is part of a cosmetic surgery procedure called ‘brachioplasty’ which is designed to remove skin and fat from various body areas. This sagging skin in the upper arm is usually caused by weight loss. However, the natural ageing process also causes skin to lose elasticity naturally. Many individuals find that the arms, in particular, lose their firmness as the layers of muscle and supporting fat become thinner. In such cases, an arm lift can help to restore and tighten these areas, giving a much firmer, youthful look and leaving you more confident to wear sleeveless tops and dresses.

About Your Arm Lift Procedure

A simple procedure performed under anaesthetic. Incisions are made beneath the arm from the armpit downwards; the size depends on the individual. Excess fat and skin is then removed to give a more trimmed look to the arm and leaving them with a firmer feel.

Procedure Time: 1.5 – 2 hours
No of Procedures Needed: 1
Recovery Time: 4-6 weeks


After your arm lift procedure you will experience some bruising, swelling and a tightening feeling in your arms. After a week you will have your first stitches removed and a week or two later the deeper sutures will be removed. You will be required to wear supporting garments for a few weeks following your arm lift to aid recovery and reduce swelling. You should not participate in strenuous activity until fully recovered and swelling/bruising has subsided.
