An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and skin from the upper arms to give them a more toned, slimmer appearance. Over time, the soft tissue in the upper arm becomes lax and may begin to droop and sag, resulting in upper-arm skin that appears to hang. Many people are embarrassed by the appearance of sagging upper arms, and seek treatment to restore a slimmer, more youthful appearance.


The arm lift procedure is ideal for a patient who has a significant amount of hanging skin or fat in the upper-arm area, maintains a stable weight and has realistic expectations for surgery. It is also important that the patient be healthy overall, with no major medical conditions that may be affected by surgery.
