Dr. Crofts Plastic Surgery

Arm Lift

What is Brachioplasty Surgery?

The goal of brachioplasty (arm lift) surgery is to restore the shape and firmness of the upper arms by removing sagging tissue and excess skin and fat to improve the arms’ overall appearance. Patients who might be interested in a brachioplasty surgery have upper arm skin that sags or causes irritation. Typically brachioplasty surgery requires an incision on the inner part of the upper arm. Some patients may only need a smaller incision in the armpit and down the upper arm a few inches. Dr. Crofts will address your concerns and determine if brachioplasty surgery is right for you during your consultation.

The Aesthetica Difference

Dr. Crofts has performed hundreds of brachioplasty procedures over his more than 22 years as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Brachioplasty surgery takes a very skilled and experienced surgeon to remove and reposition upper arm skin while preserving nerves and minimizing incisions. Dr. Crofts’ artistic eye and experience with brachioplasty procedures will give you the confidence in knowing he can help restore the upper arms to a more youthful state in the safest way possible.


Recovery for brachioplasty procedure is 4-6 weeks of no lifting or exercising. Patients need to have their arms elevated at a 45-degree angle while resting for the first couple of weeks. At Aesthetica, post-operative care and safety is our number one priority. We see patients frequently after their procedure to ensure healing and recovery is on track. Patients also have 24-hour access to a nurse on call.
