Brachioplasty (arm lift)

Brachioplasty (arm lift)

Brachioplasty, or arm lift, aims to remove excess fat and skin. It is often combined with liposuction.

Anaesthesia and hospitalization

Anaesthesia may be local or general, usually in a day hospital setting or with an overnight stay. The length of the procedure is between one and a half and two hours.


Following the operation, special antiallergic plasters are applied for six weeks. Internal sutures are used and do not require removal. Swelling tends to disappear in about one week, while bruises will take two weeks to disappear. The final result is already visible after six weeks.
