Arm Lift Before And After

Arm lift surgery, or brachioplasty, reduces excess sagging skin, while tightening and smoothing the underlying tissue of the upper arm. Patients who’ve lost a lot of weight can benefit greatly from this surgery. In this gallery, you’ll find amazing before and after images of arm lift surgery. Following this procedure, the results are apparent almost immediately. Most patients’ upper arms will be smoother and the contour noticeably improved. Best of all, the results are long lasting.

Patient 3161 Arm Lift Before And After

(Individual results vary. See disclaimer)*

Jane was 44 years old and had been worried about her arms for a long time. She never wore sleeveless tops and she never went to the beach or went swimming because she was embarrassed by her arms. She worked in a kitchen and would love to be able to wear sleeveless tops.

She had a liposuction based arm lift performed in Maitland Private Hospital. She had close to 1.5 kg of tissue removed from her arms.

She had a quick recovery and was back home on the same day, and able to have a shower the next day.

She was back to her kitchen job at four weeks.  Jane was finally able to wear sleeveless shirts, although she did wait six months until the scar was faded and not so obvious anymore.

Patient 3165 Arm Lift Before And After

(Individual results vary. See disclaimer)*

Ellie was 33 years old and had lost a lot of weight in the last few years.  She had lost 30 kg through diet and exercise.

She had noticed however, that the more weight she lost, the saggier her arms became. She was starting to feel really self conscious about this aspect of her body.

She was aware that there was a long incision needed for an arm lift. However, she was happy to trade a scar for slimmer and tighter arms.

Dr Beldholm performed a liposuction based arm lift for her. He removed 1200 ml of fat from the left arm and 1300 ml of fat from the right.

She went home on the day of the operation and recovered quickly. She was back to full exercise at four weeks.

Patient 3164 Arm Lift Before And After

(Individual results vary. See disclaimer)*

Rose was 60 years old, and had had a facelift performed by Dr Beldholm one year prior. She was very happy with the result, and now wanted to proceed with a brachioplasty.

She did not have a lot of loose skin on the arms. However, the skin bothered her a lot as she felt that it was “flopping around”.

Dr Beldholm discussed a mini arm lift with her initially. However, this would not give her the tightness that she was after. She was happy to have a longer incision, as long as her arms were a lot tighter.

Patient 3163 Arm Lift Before And After

(Individual results vary. See disclaimer)*

Kelly was 22 years old. She had been significantly overweight in her teenage years. She  made a decision that she would lose the weight when she was around 15 or 16 years old. She struggled significantly with her weight loss, and after seeing her GP she was given a prescription for one of the available weight loss medications. She used this for three months and was able to lose 15 kg during that time.

She was then able to continue her weight loss after stopping the medication. She added an exercise regimen as well as a healthy eating plan. Over the next few years she was able to lose another 50 kg. She was now 73 kg, and her weight has been stable for two years. She had been unable to lose any more weight. But she was very happy with her current weight.

She had several areas of loose skin that bothered her;

  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Abdomen

However, out of all of these areas it was the arms that were her main issue. She wanted a normal shape to her arms, and she was not too concerned about the scar that she would have after the surgery.

Dr Beldholm performed a brachioplasty (arm lift) for her. This was a liposuction based arm lift and Dr Beldholm removed 450 ml of fat from the left arm and 350 ml of fat from the right.*

Patient 3162 Arm Lift Before And After

(Individual results vary. See disclaimer)*

Sandra was 36 years old and had been through a lot in her life. When she was 25 years old her weight was 136 kg. As a young child she had always been a bit big, but as she got older she started to eat more and more junk food, and at 136 kg she was not happy.

Over the course of the next ten years she turned her life around. She began eating healthy food and exercising. At 35 years old she was down to 76 kg.

However, the weight had taken its toll on her body. She now had loose skin hanging down her arms, causing her discomfort.

At her consultation with Dr Beldholm she spoke about how she was very happy with her weight, but that her arms were really causing her a lot of pain and preventing her from feeling whole.

Dr Beldholm performed a liposuction based arm lift in Newcastle.*

Patient 3159 Arm Lift Before And After

(Individual results vary. See disclaimer)*

Shelly, who was 53 years old, had been thinking about having something done for her arms for a long time. She had always had large arms, but she noticed that with the combination of aging and weight loss that the skin on her arms started hanging and causing her a lot of discomfort.

She initially came to see Dr Beldholm for liposuction and a short scar arm lift.

However, during the consultation Dr Beldholm noted that the excess skin and fat was substantial, and to get a good result she really needed a long incision.

The arm lift is done combining liposuction and skin resection and has the benefit of slimming the arm down as well as getting rid of loose skin.

Dr Beldholm removed 800ml of fat from the right arm and 700ml from the left. He also removed 137 grams of skin from the right arm and 91 gram from the left.

Shelly went home on the same day as the operation, and had a quick recovery.

She was back to work in two weeks and started to go to the gym at four weeks.*
