Arm Lift abroad An arm lift, which is also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure which removes sagging skin and fat from the upper arm to the elbow, reshaping the arm into a tighter and firmer form. It is a popular procedure among patients who have experienced extreme weight loss. An arm lift is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and the patient is administered either a general anesthetic or local anesthetic with sedation. There are two methods which can be performed during an arm lift procedure.

In the case whereby there is not an excessive amount of sagging, the surgeon may be able to perform the surgery by making a minimal incision near the armpit, where liposuction can be used to remove excess fat. For patients who have experienced a lot of weight loss and have sagging skin around the arm, the surgeon will usually opt to make a longer incision along the elbow and past the armpit. This allows for both liposuction to be used and for the surgeon to re-sculpture the arm, making the skin tighter. Possible risks and side effects of an arm lift include infection, swelling, numbness, bruising, scarring, loss of sensation, and bleeding.

An arm lift, also referred to as a brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to firm and reshape the upper arms. The surgeon may use liposuction to remove excess fat and skin and reposition the remaining skin to tighten it. An arm lift procedure may be recommended for patients with a lot of loose skin on the arms, or patients with large hanging fat deposits. Loose arm skin (often called "bingo wings") is common after considerable weight loss. Patients with small amounts of loose skin should not consider surgery as it can leave a big scar.

Generally, the surgery is only recommended if the transformation will be dramatic enough to justify the scarring. Many clinics offer minimally invasive options however, traditionally the surgeon makes an incision in the arm extending from the elbow, up to the armpit. As the scar is on the inside of the arm, it is hidden a lot of the time but may still be seen. Patients should consider whether the benefits of the surgery outweigh the potential scarring.
