Arm Lift Techniques

An arm lift is performed by using two different techniques, which include;

Minimal Incision Arm Lift – This technique is used for people with a small amount of fat or skin near the armpits.

Full Arm Lift – It is preferable for patients with excess sagging skin on the arms.

How is the procedure performed?

Brachioplasty in Dubai is performed on an outpatient basis which means overnight stay at the hospital is not required. The whole surgery can take almost 2-3 hours and consists of the following steps;

  • First of all, local anesthesia is administered.
  • After that, the surgeon makes small incisions at the back or inside the arms. For mini arm lift, an incision is made in the underarm that extends above the elbow. However, for the full arm lift, the incision starts from the elbow and extends to the armpit and sides of the chest.
  • Once the incisions are made according to the technique chosen, the excess fat deposits are removed using liposuction. The suction pump extracts all the fat.
  • The excess skin is tightened.
  • In the end, the incisions are closed utilizing absorbable stitches.

Post-Op Guidelines

If you want to have the desired results without scar formation, follow the post-op instructions carefully.

  • Refrain from physical activities for at least three weeks.
  • Take all the prescribed medicines regularly.
  • Keep your arms elevated on a pillow to minimize swelling and discomfort.
  • Wear a compression garment for the suggested time.
  • Protect your incision sites from water to avoid infection.
  • Take a sufficient amount of rest.
  • Avoid direct exposure to the sun for a year after the surgery.


Generally, the recovery period for an arm lift surgery is short. It can take almost 2 to 3 weeks to recover after the surgery.
