Arm Lift

Brachioplasty

An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, reshapes the under portion of the upper arm from the underarm region to the elbow.

What should I expect during a consultation for arm lift surgery?

During your arm lift surgery consultation be prepared to discuss:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drug use
  • Previous surgeries

Your arm lift surgeon will also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Take photographs
  • Discuss your options
  • Discuss likely outcomes of arm lift surgery and any risks or potential complications

Be sure to ask questions. To help, we have prepared a checklist of questions to ask your arm lift surgeon that you can take with you to your consultation.

It's very important to understand all aspects of your arm lift procedure. It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
