Brachioplasty, or Arm Lift as it is also called, is a procedure that improves the appearance of the upper arms by removing excess, sagging skin. Many people struggle with excess, sagging skin of the upper arm, particularly after a significant weight loss as is often seen in bariatric surgery patients. Brachioplasty eliminates the excess, sagging skin through an incision that runs from the elbow to the arm pit (it is important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar). In some cases, the Brachioplasty procedure may be paired with Liposuction to also reduce excess, stubborn pockets of fat from the area.
