An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:
- Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
- Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
- Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region
Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that often cannot be corrected through exercise.
Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.
If the arm has fat present, but no loose skin, liposuction alone may beÂ performed. For those with loose skin and fat, liposuction is performed and then the loose skin trimmed and sutured. Some patients may be candidates for a minimally invasive BodyTite / ArmTite procedure using Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction for fat removal and thermal skin tightening.
