An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:
- Reduces excess loose skin that droops downward
- Tightens and smoothes the underlying tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
- Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region
Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a sagging appearance with excess skin. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.
Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.
Complications are uncommon except for smokers.
Smoking is to be stopped at least 1 month before surgery.
Results are great. No laser machine can do what surgery does in term of patient nor doctor’s satisfaction.
