The Arm Lift is a procedure that is performed to improve the upper arms when there is excess, sagging skin in the region. As we get older, particularly women often struggle with the upper arms either due to excess, sagging skin on its own or in combination with stubborn pockets of fat that aren’t responsive to healthy eating and exercise. The Arm Lift procedure, also called Brachioplasty, is one tool that can be utilized, in addition to healthy eating and exercise, to create a smoother, more toned looking upper arm even later in life. The procedure is performed through an incision that runs across the insider, upper, underarm between the elbow and armpit–it is important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar, though it is in the least visible area and will fade over time as it heals.
Some may opt to combine the Arm Lift with Liposuction to also get rid of that stubborn fat in the area. To learn more about the Arm Lift and other body contouring procedures, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
