What is an Arm Lift?

An Arm Lift, also known as Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms. It is performed to address sagging or flabby arms that may be a result of weight loss, aging, or genetics. The goal of an Arm Lift is to improve the contour and appearance of the arms, creating a more toned and youthful look. The procedure involves making incisions on the inside or back of your arms and tightening the underlying tissues to achieve a smoother and more defined arm.

What To Expect On The Day Of Arm Lift Surgery?

Dr. Tandon will carefully make incisions along the inner or back surface of your upper arms, through which he will remove excess skin and fat. The underlying tissues will be reshaped and tightened to create a more toned and defined appearance.


Once the desired changes have been made, the incisions will be closed with sutures, and your arms may be wrapped in dressings. The length of the procedure can vary, but on average, Arm Lift surgery in Boston takes a few hours. When finished, you will be closely monitored in a recovery area and provided with detailed post-operative instructions for a smooth recovery.
