We all have trouble areas- the parts of our bodies we would like to improve. For some people it’s the arms. Genetically we are predisposed to gain and hold on to weight in different areas and for some people this area is the arms. For people who have excess fatty tissue in their arms, liposuction alone can improve the shape and contour of their arms.
For other people, diet and exercise or bariatric surgery leads to massive weight loss. These people are then left with excess sagging skin under the arms. Brachioplasty (arm lift surgery) is an operation to remove excess skin from the arms. Sometimes it is combined with liposuction. Any patient wanting to have their arms lifted has to accept that cutting out the excess skin leads to scars. They have to be willing to trade an improved shape and contour for some visible scarring. Everybody is different in how they heal and the scars can vary from person-to-person.
