Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, reshapes the under side of the upper arm from the underarm region to the elbow. It also reduces excess skin and fat in the area and reshapes the arm to result in smoother skin and contours resulting in a more toned and balanced appearance.
Drooping and sagging in the arm can be caused by fluctuations in weight, growing older, and even heredity. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm. However, it cannot restore excess skin that has lost elasticity, weakened tissues, or localized fat deposits.
Candidates for an arm lift include: adults with significant upper arm skin laxity, adults of any age whose weight is relatively stable, healthy individuals, and individuals with realistic expectations. If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you.
