An arm lift, or brachioplasty, works to reshape sagging skin and fat deposits underneath the arm. This treatment can be used to address sagging skin anywhere from the underarm area down to the elbow. For some patients, diet and exercise can help improve the body’s contours, but it cannot necessarily reshape the sagging skin. An arm lift may be combined with liposuction to create the optimal sculpted upper arm that helps complement the rest of your figure.
After losing a significant amount of weight, removing the excess skin from beneath the arms provides an uplifting improvement in the shape and appearance of the arms. The arm lift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures to have performed after a massive weight loss journey. The surgery allows patients to feel more comfortable wearing sleeveless clothing as their arms will appear slimmer and more toned.
