An arm lift or Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure to remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. With age, the skin on the upper arm can become loose and flabby. Arm lift cosmetic surgery can enhance the appearance of arms that, with age or weight loss, have lost their natural firmness and shape.

Who are the people who can undergo this treatment? This surgery can be performed on those with large amounts of loose, hanging skin on the upper arm. The main aim is to return the body to a more normal appearance after loss of skin elasticity due to extreme weight loss or age-related changes. Although small amounts of fat can be removed along with your excess skin, an arm lift is not intended to remove significant fat deposits. An arm lift is generally an outpatient surgery, which means that the patient can go home a few hours after surgery, though it is advised not to indulge in strenuous work for at least two weeks and thereafter to slowly increase the intensity of work and exercise. Patients who have had breast removal surgery may not be able to have a Brachioplasty.

Arm lift surgery is often done in combination with other surgeries such as a breast lift, tummy tuck, or thigh or butt lift to improve the patient’s overall look. “These procedures should be carried out by an expert surgeon only; this will not only help in achieving better results but also help in early recovery for the patient,” says Dr.Wilberto Cortes, who has been in this profession for over a decade now. He has helped a number of people regain their body contours, giving them a younger and fitter look. For further details about a number of cosmetic procedures available, please visit the site
