Arm Lift/Brachioplasty

The arm lift (or Brachioplasty) is one of the top four most requested procedures in plastic surgery. This procedure is typically requested by those who have experienced a massive weight loss, but is not a prerequisite. Many factors including age and genetics can result in sagging of the under arm. An arm lift can eliminate most, if not all of the saggy skin, ridding the patient of the “bat wings” that plague many people. An incision on the back of the arm is required to complete the 1-3 hour procedure. Based on the severity of the arm lift, smaller incisions can be made.
