Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure aiming at reshaping and improving the contour of the upper arms by tightening or removing sagging, excess skin in the area. In the case of excess fat deposits, skin tightening can be combined with liposuction to reshape the arms, revealing a more pleasing and youthful look.
Loose, sagging skin on the inner arm may be a result of aging or significant weight loss. It may be the cause of discomfort due to chafing and is often a concern for patients who wish to have firmer, more toned arms.
For patients seeking to minimize the incisions and the appearance of scars, an alternative to a traditional arm lift surgery is the BodyTite procedure, a technology which uses radiofrequency to tighten the skin and melt fat tissues, providing impressive remodeling results for those who are the right candidates
Different options and surgical techniques can be further discussed in consultation with Dr. Gilardino.
