With age and dramatic weight loss, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag or hang in folds. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting or exercise can remove the excess skin. However, an arm lift can remove the excess skin and fatty deposits to eliminate the flabby appearance and reshape the arm for a more toned and contoured appearance.

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.

What Is the Difference Between an Arm Lift and Liposuction?

Many people confuse arm lift surgery with liposuction. Brachioplasty only removes loose, hanging skin that has lost its elasticity and is unable to retract back to a taut appearance. It does not address any pockets of fat that may also be present. That is where liposuction comes into play. Liposuction does the exact opposite of an arm lift, as it only targets the fatty deposits. An arm lift is often combined with liposuction to achieve optimum results. When performed together, the flabby skin and fat that are left over after massive weight loss is removed to restore a firm, evenly contoured appearance to your upper arms.
