Brachioplasty or arm lift involves removing excess fat, skin or both from the upper arms.
If your skin is elastic enough, then a pleasing result with minimal scars can be achieved with liposuction alone (see our section on liposuction). If your skin has lost its elasticity, then you will probably need skin excised, with or without liposuction.
