Arm lift

The purpose of brachioplasty is to reshape the upper arm.


Loose skin and excess fat. It is often associated with deep liposuction of the arm for a harmonised appearance.

Before the operation

If patients are taking aspirin or anti-inflammatories, they must stop taking this treatment at least 10 days before surgery.

During the operation

Duration: 1.5 hours

  • The incision is made in one of the folds in the armpit, extending down the inner part of the arm if necessary.
  • Excess skin is removed.


To fully appreciate the results of the surgery, it is necessary to wait 6 to 12 months for the tissues to recover their suppleness. The scars are usually visible
