Overview of Invisible Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)

Losing a lot of weight is not an easy journey and if you’re in the position of having achieved that goal, you should be feeling great and congratulating yourself. However, often following extreme weight loss, people unfortunately find the loose skin left behind even harder to get rid of than the weight itself. Likewise, as we age our skin loses its natural elasticity, which can lead to the skin sagging. On the arms the result is often referred to as ‘bingo wings’ and is something people can feel very self conscious about.

Despite a healthy diet and rigorous exercise regime, it can be impossible to resolve loose excess skin naturally. The muscle may be toned, but the skin too loose to reveal the definition. The skin on the arms can be of particular issue and in such cases a surgical arm lift, or brachioplasty, is an incredibly effective solution.

Brachioplasty surgery adopts different techniques depending on the individual. If the area of focus is relatively small and located mostly towards the very upper arm, an incision in the armpit can be adequate to achieve the desired results (short scar brachioplasty). If loose skin is apparent on the entire upper arm an incision will be made along the inner arm, from the armpit to the elbow. In both cases, the skin is pulled inwards, stitched into the new position and excess skin is then removed.

Both approaches can be performed in conjunction with liposuction, which works brilliantly to eradicate stubborn pockets of fat and provide a wider sphere of body contouring and redefinition.

For many people, brachioplasty surgery is the last step in a long journey to obtaining the body they’ve been working incredibly hard to achieve. It’s a very effective procedure, boasting instantly obvious results, and as such can be life changing for those who chose it.

Frequently Asked Questions

About Invisible Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)

Brachioplasty, or arm lift surgery, is an extremely effective surgical procedure that eradicates excess skin and fat on the upper arms. The result is tightened skin, more toned upper arms and improved body contouring

Yes, brachioplasty surgery is a highly effective solution for people who have undergone extreme weight loss and are now looking for a solution for the loose skin left behind. It can be combined with liposuction, which works brilliantly to eradicate stubborn pockets of fat and provide a wider sphere of body contouring and redefinition.

When combined with liposuction it can be very effective at removing stubborn pockets of fat on the arms and as such cellulite. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin, which in combination both physically removes stretch marks and stretches the skin so reducing the appearance of any stretch marks that remain.

Yes. Brachioplasty surgery and liposuction work together brilliantly to both remove loose skin, whilst also eradicating stubborn pockets of fat and providing a wider sphere of body contouring and redefinition.

Whenever incisions are made as part of surgery there is a risk of scarring. The location of scars following brachioplasty surgery depends on the technique employed and therefore the location of the incision. In some cases an incision in the armpit will be adequate to achieve the desired results. In other cases, where there’s a wider area of focus, an incision from the armpit to the elbow is required. Mr. Ahmad has over 30 years of surgical experience and is particularly skilled in leaving very little long term marks on the body following surgery.

Mr Ahmad takes a brief history and then assesses your arms. All treatment options are discussed in detail and Mr Ahmad gives his suggestions regarding the best options available. Fees and surgery venue are discussed. A second appointment is then scheduled to finalise your treatment.

In both cases, the skin is pulled inwards, stitched into the new position and excess skin is then removed.

Pain/discomfort is moderate but obviously varies with individuals. Painkillers are prescribed to keep the discomfort/pain under control. Movements are restricted for the first three weeks or so. A compression garment is advised for six weeks.

The procedure takes approximately two hours.

An overnight stay is usually required. Mr. Ahmad will review you the morning after surgery and, if everything is satisfactory, discharge you from hospital normally by midday.

Generally speaking brachioplasty surgery pain is tolerable and managed with pain control. Strong painkillers are required for the first few days and in most cases paracetamol is adequate after the first week.

The most common side effect is feeling sleepy for a few hours. Sometimes the anaesthetic makes you feel sickly, but usually for a short time only.

You may feel slightly bloated for a few days. This is often due to slight constipation caused by medication. A gentle laxative will help resolve this.
