Arm Lift & Tightening

Arm Lift & Tightening

An arm lift or brachioplasty, reduces the excess skin and fat between the underarm and elbow. This procedure transforms your arm into having a more youthful, smoother skin, and also a toned proportionate appearance. This form of body contouring is most useful in individuals who have had significant amounts of excess skin from aging or weight loss.

How We Do Arm Lifts


An Arm lift procedure usually takes two to three hours to perform and requires a general anesthesia. Dr. Michael K.Obeng will make an incision on the inside or back of the arm, extending to the underarm.  He will proceed to remove excess skin, redistribute fat deposits, and tighten loose muscles within the arm.


  • Improves contour and shape of your upper arm
  • Effective at reducing loose, hanging skin of your upper arm
  • Develops youthful appearance
  • Confidently wear clothes


There are two types: upper arm lift and mini arm lift. The upper arm lift incision may extend from the armpit to the elbow to minimize the maximum amount of skin. In contrast, a mini arm lift incision is much smaller.
