Upper Arm Lift
An upper arm lift or brachioplasty addresses the laxity seen in the upper arm causing it to hang or droop when the arm is lifted from the side. This commonly happens after massive weight loss although a genetic tendency for this disproportionality is occasionally seen. The procedure is a combination of excision of skin and fat as well as liposuction need to improve the laxity and decrease the diameter of the upper arm. The biggest downside to this operation is the easily visualized scar extended from the elbow to the armpit. When skin laxity is not the greatest issue liposuction alone may be possible or even Coolsculpting™ thus avoiding the surgical scars.
