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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Congratulations! When it comes to first-time pregnancy, there are plenty of lifestyle adjustments to make, physical changes to get acquainted with and extremely exciting milestones ahead for both you and your future baby! Thankfully, all things considered, you can comfortably scratch “having breast implants” from any list of concerns or at least two reasons: Getting pregnant, giving birth, and breastfeeding with breast implants are all entirely possible and all considered totally safe for both the baby and the mother. Secondly, if any changes were to occur that affected the cosmetic appearance of the breasts or the implants, they are quickly correctable after breastfeeding, at the earliest possible opportunity. These changes might include changes to the position of the implants in relation to the now-developed breasts, or to the firmness of your breasts. In most cases, the implants.


Breast augmentation patients planning to bear children often wonder if pregnancy will affect or even damage their implants. While pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding do cause the body to undergo tremendous natural shifts, every woman will experience these changes differently, and the changes often differ even from pregnancy to pregnancy for the same mother. Swelling of the breasts during pregnancy is natural, as is the volume loss that occurs after breastfeeding. For some, these fluctuations are dramatic while for others they are subtle.

In either case, the breast implants are not damaged and their structure and integrity hold throughout this exciting and life-changing time. The breasts play a central role in the transformative biological process of giving birth and as they pass through the many phases involved, the implants themselves are not affected or compromised.
