A brachioplasty, or as it is otherwise known, an arm lift, is a surgical procedure that addresses sagging skin in the underarm area. It not only tightens the skin, but it smooths the underlying supportive tissue, helping to provide shape and definition to the overall arm. Contouring the arm, it essentially gets rid of the excess, sagging skin, and fat which can span from the elbow to the armpit.
In terms of popularity, it is one of the most rapidly growing choices in cosmetic surgery. It remarkably improves the appearance of the arm by reducing skin redundancy. Skin redundancy can make clothing fit unflatteringly, or make you feel uncomfortable in short sleeves or sleeveless clothes. An arm lift can restore the confidence of individuals who had this issue and allow them to wear short sleeves worry-free.
These extra skinfolds may cause the following problems:
- General discomfort
- Inflammation and rash. This can lead to an infection.
- Problems with hygiene in this area
- Poor self-esteem
