The skin on our upper arms can lose elasticity as we get older, causing it to hang down. This condition, commonly called “batwings,” can give your arms an out-of-shape look no matter how many bicep curls you do. Losing a large amount of weight after dieting or undergoing bariatric surgery can also cause excess sagging skin.
A brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a body contouring procedure that can help address cosmetic concerns in your arms. By giving underlying tissue a surgical lift and trimming away excess skin between your armpit and elbow, Dr. Bruce Hermann can help give your upper arms a more defined, toned shape.
For even more dramatic results, Dr. Hermann can combine this procedure with liposuction to remove fat deposits. Dr. Hermann can also modify an arm lift to target concerns extending into the chest area.
