Removing fat and tightening loose skin in the upper arms can be achieved with an arm lift, or brachioplasty. By removing the loose skin after weight loss or from natural aging, the shape of the arm can be restored to a natural youthful appearance. This procedure can tighten the skin from the underarm to the elbow. Sometimes the procedure is combined with liposuction to maximize the benefit to the patient. This is a popular procedure undergone by many satisfied patients every year.
