An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical
procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the
upper arm. With age, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby.
Plastic surgeons will discuss brachioplasty with patients who
want to tighten this skin and look as good as they feel. In some
cases your plastic surgeon may suggest that liposuction be used
alone or in conjunction with an arm lift to remove excess fat in
the upper arms.
