Brachioplasty, better known as the Arm Lift, is a surgical procedure that can take off excess skin and fat and improve the tone and proportion of your arms. Aging and weight fluctuations can leave a person with upper arms that are noticeably ‘loose’ and sagging, often leading to feelings of embarrassment and a tendency to hide the upper arms. This is a very common complaint of patients that have lost large amounts of weight. Many of these patients avoid wearing short sleeve shirts to avoid exposing their arms. Through arm lift surgery, many patients have been able to correct this problem and realize the benefits of a more sleek toned appearance of the arms.
Brachioplasty is a surgery for those looking to remove any excess skin and fat from the upper arm, creating an aesthetic appeal and noticeably toned and proportional arm. Brachioplasty not only improves the physical look of your arms, but can be the perfect solution to boost your confidence. With the physical factors of aging and weight fluctuations, you might notice your upper arms have lost their tone, giving you loose and sagging skin. Say goodbye to long sleeved shirts and the embarrassment of waving goodbye. You can display your arms with confidence due to brachioplasty. The upper arm lift is a perfect way to improve the overall aesthetics of your upper arms, after exercise has reached its capacity.
Arm Lift Procedures
Excess skin and fat may be located throughout the arm, armpit, and chest regions. When performing arm lift surgery, Dr. Frenzel makes an incision on the inner part of the arm that extends from the inner elbow that may extend into the armpit and chest. In some cases, a more limited incision is appropriate. Fatty tissue is removed through liposuction and excess skin is removed and the skin pulled tight and then sutured together. The main drawback of arm lift surgery is the scars that may result, which is an important aspect of the procedure for patients to understand. Scars do fade and flatten out over time, but they are permanent. A patient who truly benefits from the surgery will usually accept scars in order to attain more attractive arms overall.

Brachioplasty is a perfect way to achieve the look you are working toward. You might find that you not only have excess skin and fat throughout the arm, but in the armpit and chest regions.
