This procedure is recommended to people who have tried to tone their muscles but still suffer from chubby arms or flabby skin. Arm lifts are not recommended as a weight loss procedure, and work best on patients who are not significantly overweight or obese. However the procedure may be performed after a weight loss program to address the issue of excess sagging skin under the upper arms once the target weight is achieved.

Arm lift surgery is carried out under general anaesthesia so all patients should have a thorough consultation with their surgeon where any potential health problems, current medication and past medical history will be discussed in detail.

Our experienced surgical team will also use the consultation to discuss any potential risks to a good recovery or scar healing and how they will be managed.

For optimal results, prior to your surgery and then as maintenance following an arm lift, we advise a health and fitness plan consisting of three steps:

  • Cardiovascular exercise to help you burn fat.
  • Simple weight training and resistance exercise to tone up your muscles.
  • A well-balanced diet plan and plenty of water to maintain a healthy weight.

Contact us today to arrange a consultation with one of our specialist doctors who will be happy to discuss whether you would be a good candidate for a brachioplasty, as well as answer any questions you may have.
