The effects of ageing on the skin are familiar to all of us. Over time, the skin loses thickness, elasticity and is affected by gravity. Our doctors can perform different Arm Lift procedures to improve the appearance of drooping and sagging upper arms.
Also known as Brachioplasty, Arm Lift reshapes the under portion of your arm, from the upper arm to the elbow. It can be done with or without liposuction, to help create a well-defined, trimmed and toned upper arm that complements your upper body.
Today’s Arm Lift techniques are safe, and the scars are barely visible. Our specialists can also use advanced laser technology (AccuLift), to tighten the skin without scars.
Consult our doctors and discover how an Arm Lift procedure can help you feel younger and look more beautiful.
