What Is an Arm Lift?
Brachioplasty arm reduction helps reduce the upper arm circumference by removing excess skin tissue. The procedure also works to tighten fascia, the tissue that connects skin with underlying muscle.
What Are the Benefits of an Arm Lift Procedure?
Having an undefined upper arm contour can make patients look heavier and older than they are.
Brachioplasty has many benefits, including:
- Tighter skin
- Reduced fat deposits in the upper arm
- Better definition of existing arm muscles (arm lift surgery does not create arm muscles, but it can expose and highlight the muscles you have)
- Ease finding clothing that fits and flatters your arm shape
