Brachioplasty

What are the potential risks of brachioplasty?

All invasive surgical procedures carry risks and these will be discussed during your consultation. Potential risks associated with a brachioplasty can include:

  • Bleeding or infection.
  • Damage to deeper structure such as nerve, blood vessels and muscle 
  • Fatty tissue under the skin may die (fat necrosis)
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Numbness or other changes in skin sensation 
  • Poor wound healing 
  • Scarring. This is inevitable with any surgical procedure.
  • Possibility of revisional surgery.
