The Arm lift also known as a “Brachioplasty” is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arm.
Some patients refer the condition as removing “bat wings” as the flap of skin is excised which attaches to the chest wall.
While most patients under the age of 40 can have their arms effectively tightened with Vaser Liposuction and/or Smart Lipo, the more mature patients require skin excision.
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and does leave a linear scar on the inside portion of the arm.
