Arm Lift

A Brachioplasty or arm lift is a procedure which reshapes the under portion of the arm from the underarm region to the elbow by removing excess skin and fat. The incision length depends on the amount and location of the excess skin to be removed. Incisions are generally placed on the inside of the arm and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow. If fat is to be reduced during the arm lift, it will be excised or treated with liposuction.
