Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Excess upper arm tissue and fat can be treated with an arm lift. This procedure involves incisions in the armpit and along the inner aspect of the upper arm and is frequently supplemented with liposuction. Extra skin and fat is removed to reduce the hanging tissue in the upper arm and sometiems along the side of the chest. General anesthesia is used and the usual surgical time is two to three hours. No overnight stay in the hospital is needed.
