What is arm lift?An arm lift or Brachioplasty- is a surgical procedure which can lift and tighten up the loose skin in the upper arms, resulting in a firmer, more youthful contour.Arm lift for whom?Fluctuations in weight, growing older and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits. If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you.How it is done?AnesthesiaRecovery
