Many women, and some men, complain about the underside of their upper arms having a “batwing” like appearance. This may be due to weight fluctuations, aging, or heredity, but this loose, saggy skin can persist even after weight loss and exercise. Arm Lift, or brachioplasty surgery, is a procedure to reduce the excess skin and fat that occurs between the elbow and the underarm.
Depending on your need, which will be determined during your initial consultation, the surgeon will either make a linear incision from your arm pit to your elbow, or a smaller incision just inside your armpit. He will then liposuction the underlying fat, trim the excess skin, and place internal sutures to tighten and reshape the muscle. The result is a more toned, proportionate and contoured arm with smoother skin and more muscle detail. Patients who have had arm lift surgery rejoice in their expanded fashion choices and improved self-confidence, and say that the resultant scar on the inside of the upper arm is a fair tradeoff for toned, sleek arms.
Arm lift surgery is performed at Northern Arizona SurgiCenter, our privately owned, fully licensed, certified, and AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgery center located in the lower level of the Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona building in Flagstaff.
