An arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. Symptoms that come from the skin rubbing can also be relieved by the surgery. With age or weight loss, the upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Patients who want to tighten this skin may benefit from liposuction alone or in conjunction with an arm lift. The scarring for an arm lift can be extensive, but it may be a good trade for patients troubled by large amounts of excess skin.
