An arm lift is also known as brachioplasty, is basically a procedure to improve the appearance of the under portion of ones’ upper arms. During an arm lift, excess skin and fat are removed from the underarms – between the armpit and elbow. The skin is then draped back over the newly repositioned contours to create a more toned look.
You might choose to have an arm lift if the undersides of ones’ upper arms are sagging. An arm lift might also boost ones’ body image.
As you get older, the skin on ones’ upper arms changes — sagging and becoming loose. Significant weight loss also can cause the undersides of ones’ upper arms to droop.
While exercise can strengthen and improve muscle tone in the upper arm, it can’t address excess skin that has lost elasticity.
