Weight loss, aging, and heredity are some of the reasons why your upper arms may begin to droop and sag. Excess fat and skin in the upper arms can be particularly resistant to diet and exercise. You can work to strengthen the underlying muscles in your arms, but this will not address skin that has lost elasticity.
Arm lift surgery (also called Brachioplasty) removes excess skin and fat to give your arms a slim, toned, more youthful-looking contour. It is sometimes performed in conjunction with liposuction to further improve appearance.
This outpatient procedure typically takes 2 to 3 hours and is performed using general anesthesia. Most patients are back to their normal routine within 2 to 4 weeks.
