Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Surgery
Brachioplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that is commonly known as an arm lift. It can sometimes be known as an upper arm lift as well. Generally, it is the method of getting rid of extra skin and sometimes fatty tissue on the upper portion of the arm to create more of a lean, toned look than what is currently present. It is an especially good option for those who have lost a significant amount of weight recently and who may or may not have lost some muscle tone as a result.
If you have areas of your upper arms that are flabby or no longer tight like they used to be, this procedure may work for you. It is a good idea to turn to a valued cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Deborah Sillins, who specializes in this type of treatment since it is not something that all doctors offer.
