Brachioplasty

Brachioplasty (Upper Arm Lift)

Brachioplasty, also known as an ‘Upper Arm Lift’ is a cosmetic surgical procedure to reduce, tighten and reshape the underside area of your upper arms from the armpit to the elbow.

The deformity is often referred to as ‘Bat Wings’.

An Arm Lift can reshape your upper arms and leave you with tighter and smoother skin as well as better-proportioned upper arms by removing the excess loose skin and fat from the underside of the arms.  If there is also a lot of excess fat present, liposuction would need to be included in the procedure.

 

 

Although it can be performed on both women and men, most patients requesting this surgery are women over 40 who have either lost a lot of weight or where the skin has simply lost its firmness and elasticity through ageing.

The procedure is performed by our highly experienced, Australian-trained, female Plastic Surgeon, Dr Sawjin Tew who has helped hundreds of patients over the years with her extensive experience and sense of artistry.

What are the costs?

The total cost of your procedure is made up of each of the following individual costs:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Anaesthetist’s fee
  • Hospital costs
  • Pre-operative medical tests
  • Medications

Our Plastic Surgeon will give you an itemised quotation at your initial consultation.

Is Arm Lift Surgery eligible for a Medicare rebate?

Brachioplasty surgery is eligible for a partial Medicare Rebate. If you also have Private Hospital Insurance, a variable portion of the Hospital Fees can also be claimed depending on your Fund and your level of Cover.
