Armlift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, has seen a 53-percent increase in the last decade. It’s the only way to totally reshape your arms, by sculpting the skin and fat that’s behind the “bat-wing” appearance.

Traditionally, those who choose an armlift have had to accept the trade-off that comes with the surgery: a scar that often runs the length of the inside of the upper arm, from armpit to elbow. But New York City plastic surgeon Lawrence Reed, MD, is among a handful of surgeons who have improved the modified lift to limit scars.

As Dr. Reed describes it: “Traditional brachioplasty delivers youthful, firm arms, but most patients won’t show them off because of the scar.” However, the promise of a less visible scar has a trade-off of its own: while recovering from this modified procedure, you can’t lift your arms above shoulder height for about a month.
