AKA Arm Lift
A brachioplasty is carried out to correct a problem commonly referred to as ‘bingo wings’.
An arm lift involves the removal of excess fat and loose skin from the upper part of the under arm area. This is a target area that many women find that as they age the skin becomes loose and saggy, and sadly, it is very unlikely to resolve with exercise alone. Other candidates may have experienced significant weight loss which has left them with unsightly excess skin in this area.
The arm lift operation involves making an incision in the under arm often from above the elbow to the armpit. While this is a long incision and some form of scarring is inevitable, our surgeons’ delicate handling of the incision and the suturing ensures its long term visibility will be minimal.
