Arm Lift for Upper Arm Fat Reduction
An arm lift – also known as a brachioplasty – is a surgical procedure that manually removes excess skin and fat from the upper arm region. This cosmetic surgery is a great option for patients who are struggling to lose upper arm fat, despite doing all the right things with diet and exercise.
Am I a Good Candidate for an Arm Lift?
You’re a good candidate for an upper arm lift if you have excess skin and fat that just won’t respond to your healthy habits. In many cases, this lack of fat reduction isn’t your fault; it often comes down to genetics or loss of skin laxity. However, ideal candidates should be prepared to continue to follow a healthy lifestyle, as an upper arm lift cannot prevent the formation of new fat.
All candidates should be healthy nonsmokers and want to get an upper arm lift for realistic reasons.
If you’re not quite ready for a surgical solution to your upper arm fat, you may be a good candidate for non-surgical body contouring options.
