What you need to know about arm lift surgery:
Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, is a defined procedure which removes the hanging skin from the upper arms that is often caused by aging or significant weight loss. An arm lift is often combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction, thigh lift, and a tummy tuck in order to sculpt the body and create a slimmer and more defined appearance.
If you have a small quantity fat and no excess skin, you may be able to achieve effective results through liposuction alone. In some cases, it is possible to use liposuction to remove fat and lessen the length of the skin incision that is necessary. Liposuction is a much less invasive procedure that suctions out excess fat through tiny incisions.
If you have a fair amount of excess fat and skin, a standard brachioplasty incision is made from near the armpit down to the elbow. The incision is usually placed on the inside of the arm in the bicep muscle groove in order to help hide it as much as possible. Excess skin and fat are removed.
