How is an Arm Lift Performed?

Excess skin and fat are removed through an incision placed on the inner arms from the armpit to a few inches above the elbow. The scars are hidden with the arms to the side but may be visible with the arms overhead. Patients with little skin excess may be candidates for removal of fat alone with liposuction.

A mini arm lift involves a limited excision onto the upper arm with most of the scar hiding in the armpit. This results in mild improvement and is best for patients with minimal skin excess.

A mini arm lift or full arm lift can be combined with liposuction as well.

Arm Lift Surgery FAQs

How Much Does an Arm Lift Cost?

The average cost of an arm lift is $3,936 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons data from 2014. This figure does not include anesthesia fees or operating room fees and the patient should expect a total cost that is higher. In our office brachioplasty (arm lift) costs are typically $5,500 – $7,500 depending on what needs to be done.

What Type of Anesthesia is Used for an Arm Lift?

An arm lift is performed under general anesthesia or sedation with local anesthetic. Many patients choose the latter for cost considerations.

What Should I Expect from Recovery After an Arm Lift?

Following an arm lift, a compression garment is worn and exercise is limited for approximately 6 weeks. Sutures are the internal type and don’t require removal. Visit our Facebook page to view reviews from other patients who have discussed their recovery and experience.
