Brachioplasty, also called an Arm Lift, is a procedure that has helped many people improve and tighten the appearance of the upper arms. The upper arms are an area many people struggle with particularly after losing a significant amount of weight, or simply as they get older. Excess, sagging skin can create an unwanted appearance that unfortunately no amount of diet and exercise can reverse. The brachioplasty procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the inside of the upper arm between the elbow and the armpit. It is important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar.
Brachioplasty may sometimes be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction to remove stubborn fat in the area that has been resistant to diet and exercise.
