Arm Lift Surgery in Nashville, Tennessee

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits.

If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you. An arm lift:

  • Reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow
  • Reshapes your arm to result in smoother skin and contours
  • Results in a more toned and proportionate appearance

Patient Results

This 35 year-old weight loss patient had really heavy arms before losing weight. She was left with had significant upper arm skin laxity and still had a moderate amount of fat in the arms. Dr. Griffin performed a brachioplasty including liposuction of the arms to remove the excess skin and recontour the arms. She can now fit in normal size blouses and doesn't feel self conscious about showing off her bare arms.


The smoother, tighter contours that result from brachioplasty are apparent almost immediately following your procedure, although the initial results will be somewhat obscured by swelling and bruising. Your new, shapely and toned upper arm is dramatically improved both in appearance and feel.

You can finally wear sleeveless dresses and tank tops! You won’t have to be shy of lifting your arms above your head in front of others or waving to a friend. Your arms will be more toned and proportionate to the rest of your body. Clothes will now better fit your upper body. Now you can dance with a partner and clap at a performance with ease and confidence.
