What is an Arm Lift?

According to the recent statistics, arm lifts are on the rise. So, what is an arm lift?

The procedure, also called brachioplasty, is designed to remove the flabby skin and fat beneath the upper arm (from the elbow to the shoulder). Often times, even with good muscle tone and regular workouts there is still excess skin in this area, causing that “wiggle” beneath the upper arm.

An arm lift may include a combination of liposuction (for fat removal) and surgery to remove excess skin. An incision is made beneath or toward the back of the arm, and the length of the incision may vary. In some cases, incisions can be small and supporting tissue tightened.

An arm lift improves the contour of the upper arm, and the results typically are long-lasting provided proper weight is maintained.
