Upper Arm Lift
An upper arm lift, or brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates a “bat wing” appearance under the arm. Removing the excess skin caused by weight loss or natural aging can tighten loose skin that extends from the underarm area to the elbow. After brachioplasty, the arms will appear more trim, firm and smooth.
It is not uncommon for women to have excess fat in the upper arm that is difficult to get rid of, even with exercise. Furthermore, as one ages, the upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. The upper arm can be treated with liposuction if the primary problem is excess fat or with a combination of liposuction and removal of excess arm skin if the skin is loose. The incision for removal and tightening of the skin can be hidden in the armpit if there is only a moderate amount of excess arm skin. If there is a significant amount of excess arm skin to remove, the incision is placed along the inner aspect of the arm to minimize the visibility. The scar will mostly fade to some extent over 6 to 12 months.
