Brachioplasty or "upper arm lift" is a procedure that can be used to correct sagging skin in the upper arm area. This procedure has become increasingly popular in patients who have had a significant weight loss. Unfortunately, after significant weight loss, most patients will have redundant skin in multiple areas including their upper arms. A brachioplasty can help create contour in the upper arm area. This can improve hygiene in the area, improve fit of clothing, and overall self-image.
