Arm Lift Surgery in Princeton, New Jersey

Arms that lack shape or definition can cause patients to avoid wearing the clothes that they would like to, such as sleeveless shirts, tank tops, dresses, and swimsuits during the warmer months. Dr. Jill Hazen is a board-certified plastic surgeon who restores her patients’ confidence with body contouring procedures. Her arm lift procedures in Princeton, NJ can tighten and tone your arms for a firmer and more attractive appearance.

What is an arm lift?

An arm lift removes the excess, sagging skin that develops from the elbow to the shoulder with age or weight loss. Although consistent exercise can help provide muscle definition in this area, many patients are unable to achieve their desired results with exercise alone. An arm lift, also known as a brachioplasty, can deliver much more toned upper arms that provide better balance with the rest of the body. The appropriate arm lift technique for you will depend on your skin, how severe your condition is, and your specific aesthetic goals, which Dr. Hazen can determine during your consultation.

Before & After

How do arm lift procedures work?

During an arm lift, the excess skin between the underarm and elbow is removed for a taut, firm appearance that adds definition to the arms.

When used in conjunction with liposuction, patients can also reduce unwanted fat in this stubborn area for even better results.

Arm lift procedures work by creating an incision underneath the armpit to the elbow. Depending if the patient is getting an arm lift or mini arm lift, this scar may be partially hidden, but scar placement can be discussed during a consultation. Once the excess fat and skin are removed, patients will see a noticeably firmer and tighter appearance.


Patients are advised to avoid rigorous exercise or heavy lifting following their arm lift procedure to ensure optimal results are achieved. Since all patients are different, Dr. Jill Hazen advises patients to discuss their concerns and desired results during a consultation prior to treatment.
