Over time, the soft tissue in the upper arm becomes lax and may begin to droop and sag, resulting in arms that appear loose and hanging. This condition is embarrassing for many people, particularly for those with severe cases.
An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and skin from the upper arms. The result is tighter, better toned arms, and a slimmer appearance. The arm lift procedure is ideal for patients who have a significant amount of excess, hanging skin or fat in the upper arm area, maintain a stable weight and have realistic expectations for surgery. Arm lift patients should be healthy overall, with no major medical conditions that may be affected by surgery.
