What is Arm Lift?
For the right person this can be a life changing procedure – letting a patient wear clothes showing her arms like she may have never done before. Arm lift or brachioplasty involves removing the extra hanging skin from the upper arm, recontouring the shape to a more attractive appearance.
Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.

Benefits of Arm Lift
Remove Excess Fat and Skin
Most of people have an huge amount of excess fat and skin between their elbow and armpit. This is a particularly trouble area because it’s visible, which is why it’s very easy for people to be self-conscious about the issue. Since arm lift surgery is used to remove this excess fat and skin, it can restore the beautiful appearance of the area between the elbow and armpit. The procedure can provide a dramatic reduction in excess skin and fat.
Better Tone and Shape
Undergoing the arm lift procedure is that it improves the tone and shape of the supportive tissues. Since these tissues are underneath the skin, plastic surgery is the only way to change the tone and shape. Once the surgeon has toned and reshaped the underlying tissue, the patient will have better underarms and look much better.
Smoother Contours and Skin
Another benefit of the arm lift procedure is that it reshapes the upper arm. In addition to this, it also results in smoother contours and skin. It would be hard to find a woman who doesn’t long for smooth skin. The arm lift procedure actually alters the shape of the upper arm, and makes it aesthetically pleasing.
A significant benefit of choosing to undergo the arm lift surgery is better proportions. Once the surgery is finished, patients can expect an upper arm that is proportionate with the rest of their body.
