The ageing process or significant weight loss can dramatically affect the elasticity and suppleness of the skin, especially on the top half of your arms. An arm lift, medically referred to as ‘brachioplasty’, can remove skin and fatty excess known also as ‘bat wings’ and offer an immediate improvement to the appearance of your upper arm. Unfortunately, a healthy diet and exercise will not be enough to address the problem, but this treatment might be the answer for you.
A combination of procedures including surgical removal of excess skin and fatty tissue, together with liposuction, can produce some excellent results, which will see you happy to wear a strappy top once more.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does arm lift surgery take?
Incisions are made from the armpit to the elbow, and where possible along the under arm to make scarring as subtle as possible. You will be given a general anaesthetic for the duration of surgery, which will be approximately two hours. You should expect an overnight stay in hospital to ensure that your recovery is well underway.
What are the risks associated with brachioplasty?
There is always a risk of infection and other potential complications with any surgical procedure. These will be discussed with you in great detail during the initial consultation with your surgeons at New Image Clinic, so that you are in the best position to make an informed decision about your treatment.
How much does an arm lift procedure cost?
When seeking arm lift surgery, you should expect to spend between £6,000 and £6,500, depending upon your individual circumstances.
What happens during the initial consultation at New Image Clinic?
Mr Ali Juma and Mr Jamil Hayek will take a full medical history. They will also conduct a thorough physical examination to ensure that your current state of health makes you a suitable candidate for treatment. You will have an opportunity to ask questions about the procedure and to voice any concerns that you may have regarding arm lift surgery, and get all of the answers you need before making the decision to go ahead with brachioplasty.
What is the recovery process?
