Brachioplasty or Upper Arm Lift

What is a Brachioplasty?

A Brachioplasty is also known as an Upper Arm Lift.  Excess skin and fat is removed in the upper arm area. The Arm Lift helps to contour the upper arm area by removing the excess skin and fat. This procedure is suitable for men and women.

The skin loses its elasticity over time. These changes are visible in many parts of the body including the arms. When the skin on the upper arms loses its elasticity, it starts to sag. Sagging skin in the upper arms is not just caused by aging, but also by significant weight loss .

Who is a good candidate?

Someone concerned with the following characteristics:

  • Excess/sagging skin to the upper arm area
  • Loss of elasticity due to the ageing process
  • Excess skin due to weight loss

Who is not a good candidate?

Someone concerned with the following characteristics:

  • Patients who have undergone a Radical Mastectomy / Lipedema
  • Excess fat (Liposuction would be more suitable)
  • Unrealistic expectations

The procedure

Brachioplasty is performed under twilight sedation and local anaesthetic in our licensed day hospital.  Some patients may only require local anaesthetic. Small incisions are hidden in the armpit  or the vertical length of the upper/inner arm. Small  sutures are used to close the incision.

How long will I take off work?

Approximately 7 days depending on the amount of physical activity involved in your line of work.

The recovery

It is normal to experience some tenderness and swelling  following  your procedure. You  may be required to wear a support garment for a couple of weeks. It is important to rest and to refrain from strenuous physical exercise for 3 weeks.

Is there discomfort?

You may experience post- operative  discomfort.  Analgesia (pain killers) will be prescribed for you following your procedure.

Pre and post operative care

Your pre and post operative care is managed by our Registered Nurses. This will include pre operative assessment and post operative wound management.

Risks and complications

Brachioplasty is usually very safe and complications are rare, however there is a small risk of complications with any surgical procedure. These may include:

  • Infection
  • Haematoma (blood collection under the skin)
  • Scarring – some is expected with the long incision and may take many months to settle down

If I am interested, what now?

Your first step is an initial consultation with Dr Oates. You do not need a GPs referral for this consultation. Or you can have a complementary consultation with one of our Registered Nurses.

If Dr Oates decides that you are suitable candidate for a labiaplasty and you want to go ahead with the surgery, a booking for the surgery and the pre-operative care is scheduled. The usual waiting period is approximately three to four weeks.


Complimentary Consultations

You may wish to speak with one of our qualified Registered Nurses prior to seeing Dr Oates. During this free consultation, a Registered Nurse can discuss both surgical and non-surgical options to treat your cosmetic concern(s).
