The cost quoted above is indicative and should not be taken as the final cost of the surgery. The final cost can be ascertained after the surgeon has evaluated the patient. The cost in Indian Rupees can vary based on exchange rate.
Arm Lift Cost in India starts from US $ 2,300 and varies depending on the extent of surgery required, your medical history, if you have any comorbidities, surgeon, facility and the city where you choose to get the surgery done.
Factors that affect Arm lift Cost in India
Plastic Surgeon's Fees
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.
Type of Surgical Option
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:
Extreme weight-loss leading to sagging skin
Sagging and stretched skin due to age
Tenacious fat pockets that don't decrease even with exercise and diet
When sagging arms cause unhygienic conditions and uncomfortable for proper functioning of the person's normal activities
Simply for desire of better looking and toned arms
Am I a good Candidate?
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.
Arm Lift Options
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.
1-3 Hours (depending on the type of surgery)
Initial Recovery Time
How is Arm Lift Procedure done?
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.
What is the Recovery after Arm Lift Surgery?
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.
What Results Can I Expect from Arm Lift Surgery?
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.

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.

Both of us were very pleased with the professional care provided to us from the first email to enquiry to the moment we stepped foot in India. We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
