Brachioplasty, more commonly referred to as an Arm Lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to improve the contour of the upper arms. The upper arms are a notably difficult area for many people, particularly later in life or after achieving a significant weight loss. When there is excess, sagging tissue and skin in the upper arms, it leaves many people feeling self-confident about their arm appearance. Brachioplasty is performed through an incision that runs along the upper inside of the arm between the elbow and the armpit. It should be noted that this incision will leave behind a permanent scar, though for most patients this trade-off is worthwhile. We encourage everyone considering this procedure to view before and after photos of patients who have undergone brachioplasty to get a realistic idea of the kind of results possible through this procedure.
