Brachioplasty (also know as "arm lift") is a term used to describe the procedure designed to improve the appearance of an arm by removing excessive skin and fat.
The procedure is done on an outpatient basis. It consists of resection of redundant skin and fat usually from the axilla (underarm) to the elbow, less frequently through the underarm incision only.
It is sometimes preceded by arm liposuction (if the arms have a large content of fat), followed by resection of skin and remaining fat excess a few weeks later.
After the surgery, the patient is asked to wear a compression garment (usually an athletic long-sleeve shirt) for 2-4 weeks.
