Arm Lift Tacoma

The arm lift, also called brachioplasty, is a body contouring procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the upper arms. Many of us struggle with our upper arm appearance, especially as we get older. People who have lost a significant amount of weight or had weight fluctuations often deal with sagging skin in various areas of the body. The arm lift reduces the excess, sagging skin and tissue to create a smoother, more toned, and youthful upper arm appearance. The procedure is performed through an incision that runs along the inside of the upper arm between the elbow and the armpit. It is important to understand that this incision will leave a permanent scar that will fade over time but never go away completely.

Sometimes liposuction may be performed with the arm lift if there is also excess, stubborn fat present in the area, or the arm lift may be performed with other body contouring procedures in other areas of the body.
