Arm lift is also commonly known as “arm tuck” or “brachioplasty”. This body contouring procedure shapes and contours the upper arm to achieve a youthful and toned appearance. The most common reasons to seek arm lift surgery include excess fullness, fatty tissue, and droopy skin in the arms. Some patient’s only have excess fatty tissue, some others droopy skin, and some a combination of all of the above. In most cases the patient may find it difficult to wear desired clothing, exercise, and even affect self image and confidence.

There are known advantages to arm lift surgery: Removes excess fatty tissue in the arms, removes excess droopy skin in the arms tightens the upper arm skin


As a person gains weight excess fatty tissue accumulates in the arms and stretches the overlying skin. As the person looses weight or ages, the stretched skin looses its elasticity and ability to contour to the underlying fat, creating the appearance of droopy skin, loose skin, or commonly known “wings”. In some people, the skin retains its elasticity and contours again to the underlying tissues; in this situation there is no droopy skin but there is excess fatty tissue that creates a bulky and full appearance.

The procedure is chosen after identifying the areas of fatty tissue and loose skin. Dr. Rueda analyzes each patient’s case meticulously to offer the procedure that leads to the best arm contour.


Dr. Rueda is an expert in arm lift surgery and performs three types of procedures to achieve the desired outcome: arm lift with liposuction, mini arm lift, and full arm lift.
