Also known as brachioplasty, arm lift surgery is a technique to lift and reshape the upper arm.
The arm lift procedure targets the inner sides of the upper arms, which are resistant to most forms of weight training. The surgery effectively reshapes the upper arm, reducing the appearance of so-called "bingo wings".

What are the potential risks and complications of an arm lift?
There are potential complications and risks associated with any surgery. I will discuss these general risks with you, as well as provide detailed information about the complications and risks associated with an arm lift including:
- Some patients experience temporary numbness near the incision sites, and on the inner side of the arm. This is temporary and gradually improves with time.
- The scars may need to be extended into the arm pit and chest wall if there is a lot of excess skin
- Movement may be restricted to the tightened skin of the arm
- In very rare cases, the skin may not heal properly, resulting in the need for a skin graft
- In patients where the removal of large amounts of skin was necessary, a blood transfusion may be required
- Fluid (seroma) may accumulate under the skin of the incision site which may require a draining procedure
Hypertrophic and keloid scars may form. These are scars which are prominent and visible, and may be itchy, unsightly and annoying. However, they do not pose a threat to your health.
