Arm Fat Surgery and Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Arm fat surgery, also called an arm lift or brachioplasty, reduces excess fat or skin on the arms. It’s often used to tighten arm skin after a patient has lost a significant amount of weight, but it may also be desired if the skin on the upper arms is sagging due to aging. It’s a procedure used by both men and women to tone the upper arm, for arm fat reduction, and arm fat removal.

Arm Fat Removal

Arm fat removal may be used in conjunction with an arm lift. BodyTite, a special liposuction procedure, may be used for arm fat reduction first, followed by brachioplasty/arm lift to tighten the skin. The result? Smooth, shapely arms that let your natural muscles and definition shine through without ugly, flappy “chicken wing” skin.

Cost of Arm Fat Surgery

The price of arm fat surgery or the final cost of arm lift/brachioplasty depends on the final choices that you and your doctor make together. Some people may need more extensive liposuction or BodyTite treatment to remove stubborn arm fat, while other people who have already lost body weight may only need the arm skin tightened.

The first step to understand the cost of arm fat surgery is to make an appointment with Bruggeman Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery. During your appointment, the doctor will review your medical history, examine your arms, and talk to you about the procedures recommended for arm fat reduction and tightening. Then, only after you understand the procedures and have had a chance to ask any questions you may have, will we give you the price of arm fat surgery.

You have to know all of the pros and cons, as well as discuss with your doctor the many options to achieve your desired outcome before coming up with a price. We’re happy to help you in any way we can and will provide you with detailed prices before you make an appointment for the actual procedures.
