Brachioplasty, or ‘arm lift’ surgery, reshapes the underside of the upper arm from the armpit to the elbow. The surgery removes extra skin and fat to give a more toned and balanced appearance. Upper arm skin tends to droop with age and after significant weight loss or for a person suffering Lymphedema. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot change any extra skin that has lost its elasticity. If you are concerned about the way you look or are thinking about cosmetic treatments to boost your confidence, there are alternatives. These may include lifestyle changes or learning to accept yourself the way you are.
Who is a good candidate for an arm lift?
A: A patient in overall good health, who has been weight stable for at least one year and desires to improve the contour of their upper arms.
