Brachioplasty, also called an Arm Lift, is a body contouring procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the upper arms. Many people struggle with their upper arm appearance, especially as they get older. People who have lost a significant amount of weight in a short period of time or those who have had fluctuations in weight may especially be prone to unwanted, excess, sagging skin. The brachioplasty is performed through an incision that runs along the inside or under part of the upper arm between the elbow and the armpit. If only a minimal reduction is required to achieve the desired results, the incision may just be made along the armpit. Sometimes the brachioplasty procedure is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures, such as liposuction if there is also excess, stubborn fat that has not responded to diet and exercise.
