Arm lift with a heart arrhythmia ?
If your cardiologist believes that you are a candidate for surgery and your plastic surgeon agrees, then an arm lift is possible. A brachioplasty (arm lift) can be done under sedation as well as a general anesthetic, so discuss this with your plastic surgeon and good luck.

Arm lift and tachycardia.
Hello and thanks for your questions. Arm lift is generally considered to be a very safe surgery. However, as you have mentioned you currently have a sinus tachycardia which could affect your ability to undergo surgery safely. Unfortunately, in this forum we cannot assess how serious your heart condition actually is at this point. A good starting point is to visit your cardiologist and have a discussion about your cardiac risks. They may recommend additional testing/procedures on your heart before they can determine if surgery is safe to proceed with anesthesia.
Best wishes always, Dr. ALDO
