Overview

Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure to remove either excess fat and / or skin from around the arm. Arm contour can change with age and either excessive weight gain or weight loss. Your surgeon may recommend liposuction alone if there is minimal skin looseness. Alternatively he may recommend direct excision if there is both skin and fat excess. This will result in a scar on the fold of the arm, extending from the elbow to armpit. The procedure is performed as a day case under general anaesthetic and post operatively you will be required to wear compression garments. Soreness and swelling take about two weeks to resolve.
