Arm Lift Surgery

With the passage of time and fluctuations in weight, the appearance of sagging skin on the inner side of the arms is common. We can correct these imperfections with a brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift. This is a simple procedure in which we remove excess skin and fat.

Dr. Javier Collado often combines this procedure with arm liposuction to achieve an even more satisfying result and improved contour. Typically, there remains a linear scar hidden along the inner side of the arms, which with proper care will become barely noticeable.

Arm lift surgery is a surgical technique aimed at achieving a reduction in the volume of the patient’s arms as needed. The traction of the arm skin during the procedure depends entirely on the patient’s anatomy. Therefore, it is necessary for a professional team to thoroughly study each patient’s case in a detailed manner.

Dr. Javier Collado recommends this treatment in the following cases:

  • Improving body contour.
  • Correcting reductions resulting from sudden weight loss.
  • Allowing the use of specific clothing, such as tank tops, for men and women with arms in need of aesthetic improvement.
