Upper arm skin can become loose and flabby for a number of reasons, including age or fluctuations in weight. Although exercises to the targeted area can help strengthen and improve the muscles, it may not address the excess skin that has lost elasticity.
Brachioplasty, more commonly known as an arm lift, reshapes the arm by reducing the excess skin and underlying fat that typically appears between the underarm region and the elbow. The result is a stronger, toned appearance that is proportionate to other areas of the body.
An arm lift is a day surgery, performed under a general anaesthetic. A sutureless closer method is used that not only creates a less noticeable mark, but also offers patients a microbial barrier that allows them to shower immediately following the procedure.
An arm lift is commonly performed in conjunction with liposuction in order to achieve the desired outcome of a toned, firm arm.
