arm lift (brachioplasty)

Brachioplasty by Dr Guirguis

Lakeview Surgery Centre can help you get the tight and lean arms that you’re looking for with a brachioplasty (or arm lift) procedure. This procedure has increased in popularity, particularly amongst women who find their flabby arms a source of embarrassment, even if the rest of their body is toned. You may be a healthy weight and work out regularly, but your arms may not reflect this.


Dr. Guirguis reduces your excess upper arm fat and skin with an incision in a posterior location, extending from under the arm to elbow. After the unwanted fat is removed, the loose skin is removed and the arm skin tightened for a sleeker arm contour that you’ll love to show off!


An ideal candidate can be either a man or woman that has loose or excess hanging skin on their upper arms, as a result of:

  • Rapid weight loss
  • Bariatric surgery
  • A loss of skin elasticity due to the normal aging process

After your procedure, your arm is carefully bandaged for about 1 week. You will experience some discomfort and swelling for about 2 weeks. You should wear a special compression garment and avoid strenuous activity during that time.


You can quickly return to your normal lifestyle and activities shortly after that. You’re free to enjoy the summer with short sleeves in full confidence. Your arms now look trim, fit and you can step out with more confidence than ever.
