An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:
- Reduces excess sagging arm skin that droops downward
- Tightens and smooths the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
- Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region
Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and your personal heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.
Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms is sagging or appears loose and full due to excess skin and fat.
