Arm Lift otherwise known as Brachioplasty is a procedure that reduces excess sagging skin that droops down when you raise your arms. It also tightens and smoothens underlying supportive tissue that will help contour your arm. Excess fat that has accumulated in your upper arm can also be removed when necessary by liposuction techniques. Although exercise can help tone your arm muscles, there are certain states of your arm that will not change no matter how much dieting and exercise you do. In fact extreme weight loss from diet and intense exercise can make your arms sag even more due to loss of fat. Normal aging which results in loss of elasticity of the skin is an additional factor that further contributes to the sagging appearance. It is in these situations that an Arm Lift | Brachioplasty will most benefit you. Weight changes, aging, genetics, trauma, medications and certain disease processes can lead to extra fat and skin in the upper arms. Hence, if you have extra skin or fat in your upper arms an Arm Lift could be the procedure for you. Our Plastic Surgeon Dr. Parikh will determine what procedure is optimal for your needs.
