Surgical Cases Related to Arm Lift

Brachioplasty is required when arm liposuction is not enough

Known technically as Brachioplasty the procedure is undertaken when liposuction alone is insufficient to deal with the problem of unsatisfying excess tissue in the upper arm. This is commonly found (and unkindly called “batwing”) in the aging person, more often female, and in persons who have lost weight either by dieting or bariatric surgery. Further reduction in weight might reduce the volume of fat in the dependent posterior tissues of the upper arm but will not remove the loose skin itself which continues to hang down when the arm is raised.
