Due to ageing or substantial weight loss can cause accumulation of excess skin in the upper arm region and armpit area. This excessive flabby skin often rubs together (chafes). This excess flabby arm skin between the elbow and armpit can be removed through armlift (Brachioplasty) resulting in a reduction of chafing and allowing a better fit for clothing.

What to expect from the Arm Lift Surgery

This is a surgical procedure performed by an expert and professional plastic surgeon who will mark the area to be removed between the arm pit and elbow and make an incision at a location underneath which helps in hiding the scar in a best way. The excess loose skin is removed through surgery and drain tubes may be inserted inside to remove fluids. In some of the cases, wide or raised scars may be made.
