Arm Lift

Arm Lift in Connecticut with Dr. Wilfred Brown

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that can create a “bat wing” appearance under the arm. Fluctuations in weight, the aging process and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address underlying weakened tissues, localized fat deposits and excess skin that has lost elasticity. Particularly after losing a significant amount of weight, this redundant underarm skin remains a problem that does not improve with exercise.

What Can an Arm Lift Accomplish?

An arm lift will reduce skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow. This reshaping of your arm will result in smoother skin and contours to create a more toned and proportionate appearance.

When to Consider an Upper Arm Lift

• Your weight is normal, but you feel your shape is affected by underarm laxity
• You have lost weight and are left with excess upper arm skin and fat
• You are an adult with significant upper arm skin laxity due to aging
• You want to wear form-fitting, short-sleeve or sleeveless clothing without feeling self-conscious

There are various approaches for arm lift procedure, which will be dictated by your skin quality and the extent of excess underarm fat and skin. Dr. Brown will assist you with making the right choice based on your anatomy and preferences.
