Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
If the underside of your upper arms appear saggy, droopy or seem to have excess skin and fat, an arm lift might be a good option for you. As we age, our skin can lose elasticity. Although hitting the gym can improve underlying muscle, it doesn't address the extra skin which may be due to lost elasticity, underlying weakening tissue or localized fat deposits. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, reshapes the upper part of the arm, as well as the underarm to the elbow. This procedure is used to:
- Reduce upper arm skin that is sagging and drooping when arms are extended from the body;
- Correct the smoothness and tightness of supportive tissues that creates the shape of the upper arm;
- Localized fat pockets in the upper arm may be reduced at the same time.
