Arm Lift

Arm Lift

Brachioplasty, or arm lift surgery, reduces or removes loose, sagging skin from the upper arm to create a more attractive and toned appearance. Arm lifts are best suited for those patients who have lost an extreme amount of weight, but is also an option to help reshape the loose skin that tends to develop with aging. If the major concern is not loose skin, but excess fat, liposuction is usually the better option.
