An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure
to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper
arm. With age, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby.
Plastic surgeons will discuss brachioplasty with patients
who want to tighten this skin and look as good as they feel.
In some cases your plastic surgeon may suggest that liposuction
be used alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove
excess fat in the upper arms.
