Short Scar Brachioplasty Overview

A short scar arm lift is a specific type of brachioplasty. This technique leaves a less visible scar on the arm than a traditional arm lift. During your consultation, Dr. Butler, Dr. Leveque or Dr. Patterson will explain all your options and together you will decide if this type of arm lift is right for you.

Typical Timing/Age



$6,100 *This is an estimation & prices may vary. You will be given an exact price at your consultation appointment.


Moderate excess skin and fat of the arm may be treated with a short-scar Brachioplasty. Minimal skin excess with primarily fat excess may be effectively treated with liposuction alone. More significant skin excess is best treated with a traditional Brachioplasty.


Through an incision in the armpit, moderate excess skin and fat are removed from the arm. A Brachioplasty is usually combined with arm liposuction to remove more fat and further improve the contour of the arm.
