What is arm lift surgery?
Arm lift surgery, also known as a 'brachioplasty', involves removing excess or loose skin and/or fat from the upper arms in order to tone and improve their appearance. Women in particular tend to suffer from what’s commonly referred to as ‘bingo wings’ where the upper arms store excessive fat and appear disproportionately large to the rest of the figure.
We understand that feeling self conscious about your arms can hold you back from enjoying certain aspects of your life and while exercise can strengthen and improve muscle tone in the upper arm, it can't address excess skin that has lost its elasticity and still appears soft and out of shape. If the undersides of your upper arms are sagging due to ageing or significant weight loss, you could benefit from arm lift surgery.
Our expert surgeons can talk to you in detail about what this procedure entails during a free of charge consultation at one of our clinics in Manchester, Liverpool or Newton-Le-Willows.

What results can I expect from arm lift surgery?
By removing excess loose skin from the upper arms, the area will appear more toned and lean with clearer definition. The results will be long-lasting, provided that you maintain a stable weight and general fitness.
After losing a significant amount of weight I had a lot of excess skin that I wanted to get rid of. From my initial contact with Pall Mall I felt instantly at ease and in good hands. My surgeon was amazing and knew exactly what I wanted. My recovery was great and I am so pleased!

What happens during
arm lift surgery?
From your first call or email, we’re here to look after you. Whether you're still researching about arm lift surgery and would like more information, or you're ready to meet a surgeon to see what results you can achieve, our team of patient co-ordintors are here to help.
Pall Mall will invite you to come into an examination so that can look at your arms and have an honest discussion about why you want the surgery and the results you can expect from the operation. This consultation will last 25-40 minutes and please remember that this is an opportunity for you to ask as many questions as you want and resolve any concerns about the procedure. Our staff are always happy and willing to support you in any way.
Part of the preparation for your Brachioplasty operation will involve you coming into the surgery so that you can undertake some early tests for MRSA. There could also be some blood/urine checks os be prepared for that as well.
Additionally, we'd want to get a medical record of your arm lift and therefore we will take pictures to get a historical account for our records. After this, you'll be given time with the nurse to speak about surgery expectations, side effects or even just how to prepare on the day of the surgery.
Once the big day arrives, you will arrive at the hospital and be immediately greeted by one of our excellent nurses who will show you to your room. The surgeon will be present for your final consent and your last queries before we get started with the procedure.
You'll then be taken to the theatre and put under general anaesthetic where the surgeon will create incision under your arms to create the arm lift. The whole process can take between one hour and three hours.
Having had a 1 to three-hour procedure, you can expect to be anxious about the results and progress however Pall Mall will be there for you throughout. We will invite you to come back to the clinic post-op so we can analyse the results at 1, 2 and 6 weeks. Pictures will again be taken, this time to show the transformation of your operation.
Our team will help you with aftercare as much as you like, whether you want the reassurance of direct contact with a nurse, which you can get 24/7 or perhaps you want to come back into the clinic. All of these options are available to you, so don't let it go to waste!
