Due to various reasons, the skins of the upper arms of some people start sagging and loosening. Sometimes, there is excess fat even though there is no sagging.


These sagging and loosening which can be noticed from the clothes make these people unhappy.


These deformations annoy the person more than the deformations in other regions. The operation which is performed in order to eliminate the visual deformations of the upper arms is called "Brachioplasty".


In Brachioplasty, the doctor's experience and correct assessment is very important. As long as the patient selection is correct, the results of the brachioplasty will satisfy both the patient and the doctor who treats the patient.   


What are the Proper Methods for Brachioplasty?


There are two available methods as Brachioplasty and Liposuction on Arms.

There may be excess fat without any sagging in the arm. In order to save the upper arm from fats and to give the arm an aesthetical look, only the laser liposuction is applied. Fats are removed during the application. Removal of the fats may be sufficient for an aesthetical look in the arm. In persons whose fats in the arms are removed by a skilled plastic surgeon who is successful in removal of fat, no sagging or cavities occur.


In case there are both excess fat and sagging in the upper arm, brachioplasty is performed. A scar occurs which cannot be seen from outside whereas only you know where it is. It is in a region which will not draw attention from outside. After the operation, both the fat and the excess skin which causes the sagging will have been removed.
