An upper arm lift or brachioplasty is designed to remove skin and fat from the upper arms.
Upper arm lifts are usually performed under a general anaesthetic. Crescent or “smile”-shaped segments of skin and fat from underneath the skin are removed from the upper arm, and the remaining skin and tissue are lifted to achieve a tighter and smoother effect. This operation requires the surgeon to make long cuts through the skin and, therefore, the patient will be left with long scars after the surgery. Scars may run from the armpit to the elbow.
Private prices for a brachioplasty operation can be in the range of £3,000 to £4,000.
