Brachioplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to remove the excess, sagging skin of the upper arm. The Brachioplasty procedure, also called an Arm Lift, can help to create a more toned and youthful arm appearance. Many people struggle with the upper arm area due to excess, sagging skin and this can be very frustrating because no amount of healthy eating or consistent exercise will get rid of excess skin. Brachioplasty surgery is performed through an incision that runs along the inside of the upper arm between the elbow and the armpit. The surgery typically last from one to two hours and patients can expect some mild to moderate discomfort. Most patients are able to return to work in 3-7 days from the procedure.
Sometimes the brachioplasty procedure is performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction when there is also stubborn fat in the area that has not been responsive to diet and exercise.
