The Arm Lift Procedure
Brachioplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general or local anesthesia. Different surgical methods can be used to perform an arm lift, although most involve making an incision along the inner portion of the arm from the armpit to the elbow. The size of the incision is dependent on the amount and location of extra skin to be removed. After the incision is made, lax skin is removed, and excess fat is eliminated via liposuction. The remaining skin is tightened and contoured for a smooth appearance. Surgical scars are usually able to be concealed along the insides of the arms and are not noticeably visible when your arms are at your side.
