An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure used to achieve an improved appearance of the under portion of the upper arm. An arm lift is usually undergone to tighten and smooth the underlying tissue in the arm, reduce excess sagging skin, and reducing the localized pockets of fat in the arm. There are several factors that contribute to sagging arms including large fluctuations in weight, aging, and hereditary traits. To perform an arm lift, a surgeon will make a necessary incision generally on the back or inner side of the arm; then underlying supportive tissue is tightened and sculpted with internal sutures; and then the preexisting skin is smoothed over to match the new contour of the arm.
