Arm Reduction

Arm lift surgery, otherwise known as brachioplasty, is a procedure that reshapes the upper arms  by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the upper arms.

An arm lift is designed to tighten the skin and improve the contour of the upper arms. The procedure tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm whilst reducing localised pockets of fat.

Whilst the arm contour will certainly improve, the scars that result from arm reduction are generally quite visible on the back of the arm and patients need to carefully consider how they would cope with these visible scars.
