Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Brachioplasty also known as an arm reduction or arm lift is a form of body contouring used to reduce “bat” or “bingo wings” on the arm. This is the area of sagging skin on the underside of the upper arm to the elbow. The procedure involves an incision between the armpit and the elbow. Fat and excess skin is removed and the remaining tissue is lifted. This will result in a tighter, smoother, appearance under the arm.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much time will I need to take off work?
Generally, we recommend taking 3 weeks off work.
When can I resume exercise and lifting?
We advise waiting 10-14 days before resuming gentle activity and 4-6 weeks before returning to normal activity and light exercise. Strenuous exercise and sport should be avoided for 8-12 weeks. Be conscious not to over use your arms and limit lifting until 8-12 weeks post surgery.
