Loose skin and excess fat on your arms can be both unattractive and uncomfortable. Often, men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight begin to notice sagging skin on their upper arms while for other people, their skin tone has weakened with age. In many cases, diet and exercise won't be able to sufficiently tighten and tone the upper arms.
Arm lift, a plastic surgery procedure also known as brachioplasty, can create a re-contoured arm appearance, restoring a slimmer, more toned look that can improve your self image and increase your clothing options.

What to Expect From an Arm Lift
Two types of arm lift procedures are available from St. Petersburg and Tampa plastic surgeon Dr. Narasimhan. If you have only a small amount of sagging skin close to your armpit, an incision can be placed inside the armpit to tighten the skin. This procedure is known as a "mini arm lift." A full brachioplasty is needed for women and men who have a larger amount of excess, loose skin. During this procedure, Dr. Narasimhan makes an incision on the inside of the upper arm from the elbow to the armpit. Through this incision, he is able to remove excess skin and fat tissue if necessary.
