After substantial weight loss, weight gain, or simply from the effects of aging, skin on the upper arms can become inelastic, loose, and flabby. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, removes excess skin and fat for a slenderized silhouette.
Arm lift candidates – Is it right for you?
An arm lift may be suitable for individuals who:
- Have excess, loose, or sagging skin on the upper arms.
- Have experienced significant weight loss, resulting in excess skin and tissue laxity.
- Are generally healthy and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.
- Have experienced age-related upper arm skin and tissue sagging.
Patients with significant amounts of fat may consider combining the procedure with liposuction.
