Arm Lift



     Brachioplasty, also known as 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. Specific resolutions include:

  • Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
  • Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
  • Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

     In most cases, this procedure is chosen for cosmetic reasons, but in some patients sagging skin can become so severe that hanging skin can create what is called a "bat's wing deformity." This can restrict motion and interfere with the use of the arm while also causing self esteem / self image concerns.

     Your arms can give you away. Losing weight can leave you with sagging skin on your upper arms. Aging can also lead to a lack of firmness and definition, but what can be done about it? The upper arm area is one of the hardest places to tighten with regular diet and exercise. An Arm Lift can significantly decrease the amount of upper arm fat that is almost impossible to get rid of.
