About Arm Lift

An arm lift, also known as arm reduction surgery or a brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in order to improve the contour of the upper arm.

Sagging and excess skin under the arms, often called ‘bat wings’, is usually the result of significant weight loss combined with diminished skin elasticity due to the aging process.

An arm lift is often combined with a liposuction to remove fatty tissue under the skin.

The procedure may be combined with the removal of excess skin on other parts of the body as a part of a total body lift procedure to improve the contour of the body as a whole by removing unsightly loose hanging skin and fatty tissue.
