The area of the inner surface of  forearms is a weak point in almost any organism. Muscles don’t lend themselves well for exercises, therefore sport practically has no effect on this region.

In addition, with age or sudden weight loss, forearms are the ones that suffer the most. The skin sags, becomes flabby and unattractive, forcing you to wear long-sleeve shirts more and more often.

The only way to get rid of this defect is Arm lift.

Arm Lift is a type of plastic surgery that lifts unwanted subcutaneous fat tissue and sagging skin in the arm region. The skin becomes firmer and tighter after the Arm Lift. Which is why Arm Lift or brachioplasty has taken a stable place in the niche of plastic surgery.

Who is in need of Arm lift?

Hand plastic surgery is performed for aesthetic reasons to improve the contours of the shoulder and forearm, to eliminate cellulite, bumps and folds.

The procedure is recommended in the following cases: 

  • sagging and ptosis of the arm skin in the shoulder area;
  • sagging of tissues in the axillary area;
  • excess fat.

With brachioplasty, you can get rid of pronounced asymmetry, pigmentation and other aesthetic defects. The procedure is very popular among models, athletes and artists. For men, a simple manipulation allows them to always be in shape, and for women, it allows them to shine in revealing outfits.

How is the operation performed?

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and lasts approximately 1.5-2 hours.

In most cases, an arm lift is combined with liposuction, which is done in the following sequence:

  1. Liposuction. The doctor uses a special cannula to remove excess adipose tissue through micro-punctures. 
  2. Incision and excision is the second stage of the intervention. The surgeon removes the fatty tissue with liposuction and then excises the excess skin. 

After the operation, drainages are placed in the incision area and special compression clothing is put on the hands. After brachioplasty, the patient stays in the hospital for 2-3 days and then goes home. 


Arm lift has a stunning effect. The main advantage of the surgery is a fairly quick and very effective solution to a rather difficult task – to restore tone to thin and weakened skin. 

You will get rid of excess fat and skin on your arms, improve the contours of your upper torso and be able to wear open clothing that allows you to expose your arms.

The effect after the procedure is lifelong. But after a while, as a result of natural aging, it can decrease, which is corrected by sport.
