Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Loose, sagging skin on the arms can cause people to be self-concious and embarrassed especially when wearing short-sleeved clothing. This can be the result of genetic factors causing loose skin elasticity, weight fluctuations as well as aging.
Most of the time, the problem cannot be solved with diet and exercise. Liposuction alone often will also not improve the contour but may make the skin sag even more.
Excess skin is excised from the inner arm to hide the scars. Scars usually run along the entire length of the upper arm- on the inside- however, patients are usually willing to trade the long scars in order to lose the sagging and loose skin.
