Brachioplasty is the procedure aimed at correcting disproportionately large or droopy upper arm skin and fat.
The procedure ranges from liposuction alone, to limited incisions hidden in the armpit to incisions that extend down the inner aspect of your upper arm. The choice of procedure is determined by the amount of excess fat and skin in the individual as well as the quality of skin tone.
My technique for the average patient combines liposuction with as short a scar as possible to achieve a toned upper arm that matches proportionately with your forearm. By this technique, you have a better preservation of nerves and blood vessels that aid healing as well as a smoothly tapered result that is not dependent on undue tension in the skin. This lends to better healing, shape and minimal scarring.
