An arm lift (Brachioplasty) is a surgical procedure that reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region, reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward and tightens the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm.
Liposuction on the arms is normally used to remove fat from the underside of the upper arms in order to create a firm and natural-looking result. Depending on the amount of fat to be removed and the natural elasticity of the skin, an arm lift to remove excess skin may be recommended as well.
