Brachioplasty / Arm Lift
The before and after pictures of Dr Eddy Dona’s patients are provided as an educational tool to demonstrate some of results achievable from plastic surgery.
Our before and after pictures are not a guarantee you’ll have similar results even if you have a similar body. That’s because numerous variables exist with every patient, every surgery and every recovery and healing period that will impact on the results.
We would like to thank all our patients who have kindly consented to have their photos shown.
An arm lift, or Brachioplasty, is a procedure that removes loose, excess skin from the upper arms, colloquially known as ‘bat wings’ or ‘tuck shop lady’ arms, creating more defined, trim and toned upper arms. This loose and excess skin tends to develop as a result of significant weight loss, or the soft tissue in the arm becoming lax, and the skin experiencing loss of elasticity due to natural ageing or genetics.
During Brachioplasty, incisions will be made on the inside or back of your arm. The incision may extend from the underarm, to just above the elbow. This can be performed in conjunction with liposuction. The underlying deep tissue layer is tightened with stitches to smooth and define the shade of the upper arm. The excessive skin is then trimmed, tightened, and sutured into place. The skin is then smoothed over the new contour of the arm. The arm lift tightens the entire arm, from the armpit to above the elbow.
