Brachioplasty or arm lift involves the removal of excess skin and or fat from the upper arms. Patients who need this surgery are usually weight loss patients who develop loose skin, or those who have a family tendency to carry weight in the arms, making clothes difficult to fit. Liposuction is often done along with the skin removal. Skin removal does leave a scar on the inner aspect of the arm. Arms feel lighter, clothes fit better and excess skin is removed!
