Arm Wedge Excision (Brachioplasty)

When we age or lose significant weight, the skin on the upper arm can lose elasticity & tend to sag.  This look also known as “tuckshop arms” can be an area that women are unable to improve with exercise.  A brachioplasty or ‘arm lift’ allows Dr Doyle to reshape and remove excess skin and fat from the armpit to the elbow.

This surgical procedure is done under general anaesthetic and is done by making an incision on the inner surface of the upper arm.  Excess skin & tissue is removed and underlying muscles are tightened with sutures creating a smoother more defined shape of the upper arm.  Often done as a day procedure but can be overnight if you wish.

There is an item number for this procedure so medicare & health insurance rebates may apply.  If you are after a more toned and balanced appearance to your arms, Brachioplasty may be the right procedure for you. Contact us for more information.
