A brachioplasty otherwise known as an Arm Lift is a surgical procedure that reduces the circumference of the upper arms and removes excess loose skin, often referred to as ‘bingo wings’.
Unable to be tackled by exercise, a combination of surgical removal and liposuction can be used to improve the overall contour and appearance of the arms.
The procedure is suitable for those close to ideal weight, with loose or sagging skin. It is worth noting however that for this particular procedure, a larger scar the length of the upper arm is to be expected and should be taken into consideration before proceeding with treatment.
