Why Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?

An arm lift surgery removes both excess skin and fat of the upper arms to improve its contour. Depending on the location and amount of excess tissue the incision can be transverse and hidden in the armpit or length wise down the arm towards the elbow. In patients with drooping undersides to the arms, this is an extremely effective procedure to slim the arm for improved fitting in clothing.
