The “arm lift”, also known as a brachioplasty, is performed to tighten and tone your skin from the underarm through the elbow. Generally caused by the aging process, genetics or weight-loss, arm skin can become saggy. These changes can be corrected with a brachioplasty, leading to more toned and youthful-looking arms.
The surgery consists of an incision hidden strictly in the underarm (a “mini” arm lift) or a longer one on the inside of one’s arm. The length of the incision depends on the amount of skin that needs to be removed.
