01.What is Brachioplasty(Arm Lift)?
Brachioplasty(Arm Lift) is a surgical procedure aimed to reshape and provide improved contour to the upper arms and connecting area of the chest wall. While “Brachioplasty” is commonly used to describe a specific procedure for the upper arms, the term can also be used to describe any surgical arm contouring. Brachioplasty is often used to address issues such as excessive loose skin or excessive fat in the arms when it does not respond well to diet and exercise. Brachioplasty is a common procedure for patients who have experienced massive weight loss and has gained popularity since 2000.
02.How is Brachioplasty performed??
The more traditional brachioplasty techniques remove the excess skin and fat of the arm by incising along the proposed incision line and then undermining the skin and fat to be resected. The undermined flaps are overlapped over the proposed incision line and the excess skin is removed.
