Brachioplasty (Arm Lifts) are always at the top of the list of the most frequently performed cosmetic plastic surgery procedures after weight loss. While diet, exercise, and even bariatric surgery, can significantly reduce body fat, they cannot shrink over stretched skin. This is exactly what Brachioplasty, literally arm changing, surgery can do.

Arm Lifts provide selective removal of excess skin, and any residual disproportionate fat from your arms. Unlike weight loss, or Liposuction, which unstuff the arms, Brachioplasty removes loose arm skin.

Arm Skin Tightening with Brachioplasty Video Presentation

Last month, on KRON4’s Body Beautiful, I had the opportunity to discuss, several important topics in Plastic Surgery including, Arm Lifts. The indications for Brachioplasty and the methods used for arm skin tightening were discussed with host Janelle Marie. Multiple sets of Arm Lift Before and After Pictures are provided to illustrate the results possible with the Arm Lift.

Body Beautiful is a live show, so anyone watching can call in and have their questions answered. The (415) number shown during the broadcast is only for the live show, but if you have Brachioplasty Questions, call my San Francisco Bay Area Plastic Surgery office directly at (925) 943-6353.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty) Before and After Picture

The amount of excess skin treated with Brachioplasty can range widely. When the upper arm is full of disproportionate fat, but the skin is tight, Liposuction may be a better option. When the skin is floppy, however, an Arm Lift is the best cosmetic plastic surgery procedure currently available.

Brachioplasty or Arm Lift Before & After results. Before there is a plethora of excess arm skin. After the upper arm stops waving when the hand does, and a very happy patient.
