Arm Lift Surgery Basics

Arm lift surgery, which is also known as brachioplasty, is a procedure that is designed to remove fat deposits and excess, sagging skin from the upper arm area. The surgery reshapes the area from your underarm to your elbow on the underside of your arm.

Excess fat is removed via liposuction and a long incision from the underarm to elbow is made to cut away excess skin. By removing the overlying loose skin and excess fat, muscle definition is improved.

*Often, for safety reasons, the skin excision and liposuction are performed at two separate surgeries.

Toronto Arm Lift Surgery Fast Facts:

  • No overnight stay is required, but follow-up visits to Dr. Sliwin must be made to monitor recovery.
  • Scarring is unavoidable, but they will fade considerably over time.
  • Plan on taking up to 2 weeks off work following the arm lift procedure.
  • You will need to avoid exercise for up to 6 weeks.
  • You must wear a compression garment after the surgery to help with recovery.
  • The results are permanent, but considerable weight gain will still affect your body.

Who Is A Candidate for Arm Lift Surgery?

Exercising your triceps muscles can help to strengthen this area of the arm and improve muscle tone, but sometimes the loose, hanging skin can only be removed through the arm lift procedure.

If you have had weight fluctuations or normal aging has caused your upper arms to droop and sag then you may be an ideal candidate for arm lift surgery.
