An important expense when it comes to your arm lift is going to be your plastic surgeon's fees. IndiCure recommends highly experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering natural-looking results. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be assured that you are in safe and skilled hands when you choose plastic surgery in India with IndiCure.
Depending on one's needs, men and women of all ages can benefit from various types of arm lift procedures. For example, minimal incision arm lift could be a cost-effective option for someone who prefers to remove very less fat with discreet scars. IndiCure recommends you to explore the multiple arm lift surgical options by consulting our expert plastic surgeons.
Having your arm lift surgery in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility in India also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.
Another important factor that determines the cost of arm lift surgery is the anesthesia cost. The more complex/ longer the procedure, the higher the quote. Our team members at the hospitals will guide you with the anesthesia costs that are usually billed on an hourly basis, but you would be offered a package that is all inclusive, and that too at much discounted prices.
The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses. The pre-surgical expenses are associated with the age and medical condition of the patient and thus the number and type of investigations required. Post-surgical expenses may include prescription medications, post-surgery compression garments, and follow-up consultations.
We at IndiCure, understand that you travel with a budget in mind and do not like to be greeted by surprises after arrival in India. We thus club all these expenses and give you the package cost that is inclusive and affordable at the same time.
Your case manager shall give you an estimated cost of your surgery after discussing your medical reports with the surgeon. The final cost, however, shall be confirmed after your consultation with the Plastic Surgeon.

Arm lift, medically known as Brachioplasty is a plastic surgery procedure where the excess skin and fat from the arms is surgically removed. Arm lift corrects imperfections of the upper arms when the person is not satisfied with the physical appearance of the arms, the reasons of which could be many:
If you have lost a lot of weight and have a large amount of loose skin in the area where it used to be fat, or have excessively bulky arms with loose skin, you are a good candidate for the arm lift plastic surgery. You should be 18 or above, physically healthy, emotionally stable and have realistic expectations from the surgery.
Standard Brachioplasty: The standard procedure removes the excess fat and skin from armpit to the elbows.
Extended Brachioplasty: This is an extended form of standard brachioplasty which entails removal of excess skin and fat from the armpit and along the side of the chest wall as well, along with arm fat and skin.
Minimal incision arm-lift: This procedure is for people who have moderate amounts of skin sagging and very less fat to be removed. Fat can be removed through liposuction. The excess skin is removed and tucked under the armpit where the scar lies discreetly.
Arm Liposuction: Liposuction alone can be an option for excess fat in arms but with skin that is elastic enough to shrink back to its original form. If not, it can be an added procedure with normal arm-lift.
|Surgery Time||1-3 Hours (depending on the type of surgery)|
|Anesthesia Type||General Anesthesia|
|Stitch Removal||7-10 Days|
|Initial Recovery Time||1 Week|
The procedure is done under general anesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours. The procedure is done by making an incision along the inner side of the upper arm.
The incision depends on the amount of excess skin and fat to be removed. Incisions are usually made on the inside or back of the arm. It then continues down from the axilla just short of the elbow.
The plastic surgeon removes the unwanted fat, tissue and skin and stitches the incision back to give you nice shapely arms. The underlying tissues are tightened and restructured to give a firm and smooth contour.
Your arms shall be heavily bandaged after the surgery which shall be removed after about a week to ten days as shall the stitches. You can resume your work after a week to 10 days or so depending on the nature of your job. The precautions include not lifting heavy objects or doing any work which requires vigorous arm movements for at least six weeks.
The results of arm lift surgery are very gratifying. You will get nice shapely arms in proportion with your body without any unsightly folds of fat or skin hanging below them.

Arm lift cost varies with the country, city, surgeon, hospital/clinic and your medical condition. Whereas the cost for arm lift starts from around US $7,000 with a board certified surgeon in the US, it starts from $2300 or so with a board certified surgeon in India at an accredited medical facility.
Yes, arm lift plastic surgery, if done by a qualified and experienced surgeon in a well equipped facility is an absolutely safe surgery. However, it has the risks associated like any other surgical procedure. You would undergo a thorough check up and a battery of investigations before your surgery to minimize these risks.
You will have some pain and discomfort for a couple of days after arm lift, which shall be controlled with pain killers. It is natural to have some bruising, soreness and swelling in arms after the procedure. Be prepared for 1-2 weeks of recovery time after an arm lift.
You can expect your incisions to heal after a few weeks. In some patients, they may become soft and flexible in a few weeks, while in some, it may take a few months. With proper care and topical creams and ointments, arm lift scars do fade gradually with time.
You can start light, gentle movements in a couple of days after the procedure which shall improve when the dressing and stitches are removed. However, exercises and heavy work involving your arms should wait for 6-8 weeks after brachioplasty.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
