A brachioplasty or “arm lift” reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates what is referred to as a “bat wing” appearance under the arm. Removing the excess skin caused by fluctuations in weight or natural aging can tighten loose skin that extends from the underarm area to the elbow.
Liposuction is often used in combination to achieve the best results. Exercise can help to strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but unfortunately cannot address excess skin that has lost its elasticity.
Brachioplasty is an excellent surgical procedure for patients who desire more toned and shapely arms. To find out if an arm lift is right for you, please call Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery online or call (602) 883-4483 today for a complimentary consultation.
