The Arm Lift surgery, also called Brachioplasty, is performed to lift and tone the appearance of the upper arm. This upper arm region is one that many people struggle with, especially as they get older. Excess, sagging skin can create an unwanted appearance in the upper arm and is impossible to fix through simple diet and exercise alone. The Arm Lift surgery is a body contouring procedure that is sometimes performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as Liposuction (if there is stubborn fat in the are as well) or as part of a body lift. The Arm Lift is performed with an incision that runs from elbow to armpit along the inside of the upper arm. It is important to understand that this incision does leave behind a permanent scar, but it is hidden as well as possible and most patients find it to be a worthwhile trade-off for the results created.
