Arm reduction and lift (Brachioplasty) is a form of surgical body contouring. It is usually performed on patients with large amounts of loose or sagging skin on the upper arms.
Liposuction may also be performed during this procedure.
The best candidates for brachioplasty are those who are within several pounds of their ideal weight but also have enough loose skin and elasticity to allow a good outcome.
An arm lift is not a substitute for weight loss.
