Body Procedures / Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) surgery in Montreal

An arm lift, also known as Brachioplasty, removes excess fat and loose skin from the upper arms.

Fatty tissue on the upper arms can increase as we get older, assisted in hanging down by gravity, and is often most noticeable after dramatic weight loss. Genetics also plays a part, as supporting fat loses its structure over a lifetime of stretching.

What is an arm lift (brachioplasty)?

Arm Lift Surgery in Montreal


An arm lift (a brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin, fat, and tissue from the upper arms via incisions placed along the inner arms or back of the upper arms. The procedure addresses excess drooping skin and fat to tighten and smooth the upper arms, frequently performed with liposuction to render the best results possible.


Who is a good candidate for an arm lift?

Find out if an arm lift is an option for you


Your plastic surgeon will give you an honest assessment and let you know if you are a good candidate for an arm lift, but in general you should be in good overall health with no medical conditions that can impair healing, must be a nonsmoker or willing to quit smoking, and have realistic expectations.  

You should also have significant sagging skin in the upper arms and be at your goal weight if you have been losing weight. In some cases, liposuction alone will suffice to achieve the desired outcome; your plastic surgeon will discuss this option with you.


Possible risks associated with arm lift surgery


Like any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with arm lift surgery. These can include bleeding, scarring, infection, fluid accumulation (seroma) change in skin sensation, poor wound healing, revision surgery or persistent pain.


What to expect for arm lift recovery

Your plastic surgeon and surgical coordinator will go over your post-operative instructions and recovery with you as it is essential for your arm lift recovery and results that you follow care guidelines closely.
