Brachioplasty (arm lift)

About Brachioplasty (arm lift)

General Procedure

Brachioplasty, or an arm lift, focuses on the removal of excess skin on the undersides of the arms, reshaping the underside of the upper arm from the armpit to the elbow. Surgery is performed under general anaesthetic in an accredited medical facility.

Recovery Process

Discomfort, swelling, bruising and numbness are all normal after a brachioplasty. This will ease over the following weeks, and our clinic team will be able to offer you advice on effective pain management. Directly after surgery, dressings are applied to your incisions. The arms are also wrapped in compression garments to alleviate swelling and support the healing process. To drain excess fluid, you may have drains which will be managed with the help of nursing staff. Patients need time to rest and recover after a brachioplasty procedure. During the first few weeks after the procedure, heavy lifting, strenuous exercise and swimming is discouraged. Smoking should also be avoided to accelerate the healing process and prevent complications.
