ARM LIFTS (BRACHIOPLASTY)

ALL ABOUT
ARM LIFTS (BRACHIOP
LASTY)

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, can be used to help remove excess skin and fat that may hang below the underside of the upper arms. Sometimes referred to as “tuck shop lady” arms, this excess skin can be removed to help reduce the signs of ageing and tighten sagging skin that may occur during pregnancy or as a result of weight loss.

The surgery

Arm lifts can be performed under general anaesthesia.

Arm lifts are performed by surgically removing and trimming the sagging skin hanging on the underside of the upper area of the arm, with the surgeon positioning the incisions made so that they run in a line from the elbow to the armpit, hiding the scar against the body.

Our surgeons are available from the following hospitals for this procedure:

the recovery

After surgery our recovery specialists will given post-op instructions. It is important to follow carefully. You will be provided with a script for medication, which you will need to purchase after surgery and instructions on when to take the medication over the days ahead. You will be discharged from hospital when your companion picks you up from the hospital. All patients must have a companion to stay with them for 72hours following surgery.

The first week after surgery you should stick to gentle day-to-day activities. This includes minimal house duties, no lifting, staying home as much as possible and sleeping in an elevated position. Commence postoperative exercise (instructions given post surgery).

In the second week of recovery try not to raise your blood pressure too much and still sleep in an upright position. Patients will also be required to attend a postoperative appointment at our office in week 2. this will be scheduled prior to surgery.


In week 2 patients may:
  • Commence a light walk
  • Return to work in week 2 if you have an office job with little physical activity
  • Avoid sexual intercourse
  • Start driving provided they are not taking any pain medication. We also recommend waiting 3 days for the medication to be out of your system.
What are the risks ?

After surgery you may experience pain and discomfort. There is also a chance that bleeding might occur at the site of the procedure. It is important to note that the arm is an area of the body that can sometimes heal unpredictably, and this can result in some feelings of numbness, tightness or residual scarring in some cases.

If you are concerned about possible complications, be sure to discuss them with your surgeon.
