Real Patient Results
Arm Lift Cost Sydney - How much does an Upper Arm Lift cost in Sydney NSW? Prices & Fees
The cost of Arm Reduction Surgery in Sydney, Australia varies for each patient depending on the type of procedure, the results you want, and the time required in theatre.
A patient’s specific requirements are the primary factor involved in determining the cost of arm lift surgery. Not all patients require liposuction and not all patients need the same amount of skin to be removed from the arm area. In some instances, an arm lift is also combined with additional types of surgery that are required to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.
Anaesthetist, hospital and surgeon fees will need to be factored into the final cost, as will any medical tests, post-surgery garments, and prescription medications. Whether or not some of the costs will qualify for a Medicare rebate or health insurance will depend on your reasons for undergoing surgery.
If it’s purely cosmetic, brachioplasty will not be covered. However, if the excess skin caused by significant weight loss is a health concern, patients may be able to recoup some of the costs for this surgery from medicare and their health fund.
During your one on one consultation, Dr Hunt will review your medical history, perform a comprehensive assessment of your arms and body features, discuss risks and provide you with an accurate cost for your upper arm lift surgery procedure.

Should I have an Arm lift?
What's involved in Arm Lift Surgery?
Dr Hunt will perform your upper arm lift under general anesthetic at the hospital of your choice.
Before your surgery begins, Dr Hunt will have you stand as he marks the incision lines on your upper arms. The length of the incision may run from your underarm to your elbow.
Once the incision is made, Dr Hunt will tighten and reshape your muscles, to give your arm a new contour. He’ll then trim any excess skin, and suture your incision closed.
When can I go home after Arm Surgery?
You’ll stay in hospital for at least one night following the upper arm lift surgery. Once you are comfortable and able to get to and from the bathroom, you’ll be able to go home.
You won’t be able to drive yourself home from hospital, so will need to arrange for someone to pick you up. Once you get home, you should limit your movements to around the house for the first few days.
Will I have to return for post-operative care after an Arm Lift?
How long will I be off work after an Arm lift?
When can I resume my normal activities after Arm Reduction?
It will take around three weeks for you to fully recover.
For the first week after surgery your arm and shoulder movements may be limited. However as the skin stretches and gets used to its new position, you’ll slowly regain your range of movement.
When will I see the end result of an Arm Lift?
The effect of brachioplasty is immediate, although it may take you a few months to fully appreciate the final result. That’s because there may still be some residual bruising and swelling, although you will be able to see the new shape of your arms.
