Also known as a Brachioplasty, an upper arm lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess fat and loose skin on your underarms. The procedure is the most effective way to get rid of bat wings, as they’re commonly called.
Aging, genetics, and significant weight fluctuations (particularly after weight loss surgery) can all contribute to sagging arm skin, which can’t be tightened by exercise and diet alone.
Usually performed as an outpatient surgery, an arm lift procedure is the most effective and permanent way to remove extra skin and recontour the arms.
It can be combined with other body contouring procedures like liposuction, to remove excess fat and give arms or other areas a more toned, sculpted look. It may also be performed as part of a more extensive body lift surgery (with other procedures like a tummy tuck, thigh lift, or breast lift), for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, or as part of a mommy makeover.
