Whether due to aging or weight loss, the upper arms sometimes lose their tight youthful appearance. While a proper diet and exercise is the cornerstone of achieving a fit body, some parts of our body do not seem to improve regardless of how hard we try.
For patients that are not candidates for liposuction alone, an arm lift can be done to sculpt and tighten the upper arm. Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms to leave them looking younger and more attractive. An arm lift improves the appearance of the arms and helps patients feel more comfortable wearing short sleeve shirts.
During the procedure, an incision is made in the armpit to remove excess fat and tighten the skin and tissue in the area. Patients with larger fat deposits may need adjunctive liposuction and a larger scar that runs from the elbow to the armpit.
