Brachioplasty or Arm Lift is used to tighten loose and hanging skin of the arm. Weight loss or age can cause this looseness of the upper arm skin.
Small degrees of loose skin may be improved by liposuction alone. Often though, Dr. Samimi has to remove skin also to achieve an good result. Newer techniques allow for shorter scars, but often the full incisions are necessary to remove enough skin.
Your recovery following a brachioplasty may be quick, but you are required to wear a compression garment to achieve the best result.
