Brachioplasty (or more commonly known as the arm lift surgery) is a cosmetic surgery that helps people deal with the excess skin and fat found on their upper arms.

There are different reasons why there is an excess skin in that area. Among those reasons is significant weight loss, hereditary traits, or just because of the patient’s age.The arm lift surgery provides a solution to the excess skin that exercises cannot correct.

It provides a physical benefit by making the arms look better, and it also provides some psychological benefits to the patient. Patients often love their arms feeling lighter and tighter following the procedure.

The drawback to this procedure is the scaring. However the scar is usually placed on the inner aspect of the upper arm, making it less visible. For those who are thinking about going through this kind of surgery, a consultation with an experienced and certified surgeon should be done.
