Procedure: Arm Lift (brachioplasty)
This is another patient who complained of excess skin of her arms after weight loss. She called them her “bat wings”. Liposuction would remove the fat, but would do nothing for the loose skin. In fact, it would make the skin hang even more. She had a brachioplasty, which cuts off the skin from the upper arms. Bye-bye bat wings. This procedure is commonly combined with other procedures such are breast lift, tummy tuck, or upper body lift.
