With the decrease in collagen production, flaccidity appears in the most diverse parts of the body. In the case of the arms, excess flaccidity and fat can give rise to cutaneous ptosis. To reverse the situation, Brachiplasty or Arm Lift techniques allow the removal of excess skin from the arms, as well as localised fat.

This condition can cause discomfort in everyday life and lead only to wearing loose, sleeved clothing.


To correct flaccidity of the arms there are two types of incisions possible:

Longitudinal incision: suitable for cases of marked flaccidity and excess skin. The scar will be along the arm.
Transverse incision: performed in the axilla and indicated for situations of little excess skin.

Surgical time: 2 hours
