What is an Arm Lift?

An Arm Lift, also known as Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper arms using a combination of liposuction and skin removal, resulting in smooth and tight contours for a toned look.

It is performed to address sagging upper arms that may be a result of various factors, including but not limited to weight loss, aging, or genetics.
