Arm Lift or Brachioplasty
Often called “bingo arms” or “bat wings”, loose, sagging and excess skin in the upper arms is often a result of significant weight loss but also can be part of the aging process. For most people, significant sagging skin and fat cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise. An arm lift, or brachioplasty redefines the arm circumference by removing excess skin and fat. “This procedure is a trade-off for patients as the scar is significant. Even with the scar, most patients are very happy with the changes and are able to wear the clothes that they like,” states Dr Ricciardelli.
