The Reshape and Restore Cosmetic Surgery Clinic has the solution to sagging skin on the upper arms with an arm lift in Bristol.

Flabby upper arms, sometimes called ‘bingo wings’, are common once women reach middle age as the skin and muscles become slacker. Exercise and a healthy diet don’t always help, and, in fact, weight loss can make the situation worse.

Arm lift surgery will recontour your upper arm, removing excess skin to restore a more toned and youthful appearance.

Arm reduction surgery is just one of a comprehensive range of cosmetic procedures offered at Reshape and Restore in Bristol.



What will my upper arms look like after arm lift surgery?

Arm lift BristolThe term ‘bingo wings’ may sound humourous, but at the Bristol Reshape and Restore clinic, we understand that there is nothing funny about feeling uncomfortable in your own body.

After your arm reduction surgery, your upper arms will be tauter and smoother without the sagging skin and excess fat that characterise ‘bingo wings’.

Our skilled surgeon will restore a more toned appearance that you will want to show off in the sleeveless tops that would have made you feel self-conscious before surgery.




What happens during surgery to reduce the upper arms?

A surgical incision will be made on the inner side of your arms from under the arm to the elbow. Your surgeon will remove excess fat from the area and trim loose skin before closing the wound.

Your surgeon may decide to use liposuction during your arm lift operation. This technique is recommended when there is a large amount of fatty tissue to remove.

Arm lift surgery takes about two hours and is performed under general anaesthetic. You will need to stay in the hospital overnight.


How long does it take to recover from an upper arm reduction?

Your arms will be swollen and tender immediately after your operation. You can help this swelling to subside by keeping your arms elevated as much as possible and raising them on pillows in bed. Any discomfort will be managed with simple pain relief.

Full healing can take up to six weeks, and your surgeon will monitor the progress of your healing at regular follow-up appointments. It is important that you follow the medical advice that you are given regarding resuming your normal activities and exercise. Doing too much too soon could hurt you and affect the final result of your arm lift.

After around six weeks, you will be delighted with your slender and contoured upper arms, and your self-esteem will be given a welcome boost.
