Whether it's due to weight loss or aging, loose skin is a common aesthetic concern among patients at The Oregon Clinic. Upper arm lift surgery (also called brachioplasty) is one of the solutions we offer for patients who cannot achieve the toned, tight look they want for their arms because of loose skin. Loose skin from the elbow to the shoulder is very typical, especially for men and women who are getting older or have lost significant amounts of weight. An upper arm lift removes this excess skin, commonly called "bat wings." Dr. Sean McNally, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Portland, OR, has a wealth of experience in skin tightening and fat removal methods. If you want to hear more information about how brachioplasty can enhance the appearance of your upper arms, please contact us for an appointment at The Oregon Clinic.

Arm lift surgery is usually performed in an outpatient setting except in cases where several aesthetic procedures are scheduled to be done at one time. An upper arm lift may be done with other procedures (often performed at a facility with inpatient monitoring), like a mommy makeover, tummy tuck, or butt lift, if Dr. McNally decides it is safe to do so. An upper arm lift is usually done under general anesthesia and can require several hours to finish. The unwanted skin will be surgically removed from the elbow up to the underarm. The incision will be placed in as inconspicuous a spot as possible, although it will become a visible scar. In cases where liposuction is needed to remove stubborn fatty deposits, this can be performed as well. Once the skin is pulled taut, it will be stitched together. You will need to care for the incisions by keeping them clean, bandaged, and wrapped with compression garments.

Dr. McNally did a scar revision for breast cancer surgery that I had over five years ago and I am so pleased! I wish I had done it sooner. I am blown away by his skill (I look as good as new)! My experience was perfect from start to finish. Five stars!!

I chose Dr. McNally after diligent research and interviewing multiple surgeons to perform several procedures including abdominoplasty and liposuction. Ultimately, I chose Dr. McNally for his bedside manner, credentials, professionalism, confidence and skill. It’s difficult to find a plastic surgeon who is skilled at multiple procedures that are cosmetic and medically necessary, who go to bat for their patients with insurance companies…That speaks to Dr. McNally’s true character. Dr. McNally takes time answer any questions and really listens. He has greatly exceeded any expectations for pre op/post op care and results on my body contour. I’m still in shock with how my body looks and feels and look forward to enjoying living in comfort with style. Major surgery can be a scary process, but every step of the way, I felt cared for and comfortable knowing that Dr. McNally would deliver the best results with the latest technology and skill. If you’re looking for a surgeon with empathy, confidence and ability to deliver results, look no further. Thank you, Dr. McNally! ~M

Dr. McNally changed my whole life for the better! I cannot say enough great things about him. From the very first appointment I had with him I felt completely comfortable and knew I made the right choice having him be my surgeon. He actively listened to any concerns I had and informed me on what to expect pre and post surgery. The procedure with him went smoothly with no complications. He put my mind at ease during my healing process and my incision lines are practically invisible! So thank you Dr. McNally!!! You have no idea the impact you made on my life! Highly highly recommend!

I just explanted with Dr. McNally. I really wanted to have an en bloc capsulectomy done and it was really important to me to have the right surgeon to do this. Although Dr. McNally could not guarantee he could do this and would only do this if this did not put me at risk, which I greatly appreciated that he was successful in doing the en bloc capsulectomy along with a lift. I am extremely happy with the results and I highly recommend Dr. McNally. He is very skilled and caring.
