The surgical technique used in Brachioplasty, also called an Arm Lift, depends on each patient’s needs, and if they are having the procedure done in conjunction with another procedure, as well as their plastic surgeon’s preference. Speaking of plastic surgeons, the most important part of undergoing any cosmetic procedure is finding the right plastic surgeon to perform the procedure. Brachioplasty, like any surgical procedure, has risks that should be understood and carefully considered.
The brachioplasty procedure is performed to reduce the amount of excess skin in the upper arms. Sometimes stubborn pockets of fat are also removed from the arms when liposuction is combined with the brachioplasty procedure.
