Brachioplasty is a way of reshaping upper arms that, due to aging or dramatic weight loss, have accrued an excess of fat cells and hanging skin. If you’ve been dealing with this particular issue, arm lift surgery may be right for you.
Reshaping the upper arms with brachioplasty involves a few possible steps. Your plastic surgeon may use liposuction to take out excess fat cells.
Internal stitches may be employed to create a slim new shape for the arm’s internal tissues. These stitches will not need to be removed; instead, they will keep the new tissue configuration supported and stable.
Excess drooping skin will also be trimmed away, so the remaining skin will be taut and will better show off the muscles.
