What is Arm Lift?

Weight fluctuations, genetics, and aging often cause changes in the body, including the upper arms. The arms, like many other areas of the body, can experience loosening of the tissue and skin, causing a sagging look, sometimes referred to as “bat wings.”

Arm lift surgery also referred to as Brachioplasty, removes the excess skin and fat from the underside of the upper arm, extending from the armpit to the elbow. Your surgeon will carefully remove the tissue while tightening the arms, resulting in a more sculpted, youthful appearance. Let us help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside!



What are the Benefits?

At Polyclinic Plastic Surgery in Seattle, our skilled surgeons strive to give you the best possible, naturally beautiful outcome. After your Brachioplasty, you will experience:

  • Firmer, more toned arms
  • A better contour and more youthful appearance
  • A renewed sense of self-confidence
  • More clothing options
  • Beautiful, natural results


Who is the Ideal Candidate?

Generally, patients with significant skin laxity in the upper arms are candidates for an arm lift. Ideal candidates will also be in good health, not suffering from any serious medical issue that may affect their surgery or recovery. Candidates should maintain a healthy weight and will avoid smoking before and after surgery. It’s also important to be realistic about your results.



What Can I Expect from Recovery?

After a Brachioplasty surgery, arms will be placed in dressings and compression garments to avoid excess fluid buildup and swelling. Compression garments will need to be worn for two to four weeks while the arms heal. Pain medication will be prescribed to aid discomfort in the days following the procedure. Your plastic surgeon will monitor your progress and healing with follow-up appointments, and you will likely be able to return to modified activity one to two weeks after surgery. Scars will take some time to heal but are often well concealed in the inner arm and armpit.
