When men and women undergo a dramatic weight loss, they are often left with excess, sagging skin in the upper arm. This excess, sagging skin often causes many to feel self-conscious of their arms. Through brachioplasty many people have found the tighter, fitter looking arms they desired. This body contouring procedure typically takes hour to perform and is done under general anesthesia. Requiring a one night say in the hospital, brachioplasty may not be right for everyone. Some patients opt to combine brachioplasty with other procedures such as liposuction or a body lift. The brachioplasty incision run horizontally along the arm on the inside edge front he armpit to the elbow and it should be understood that while scars will fade with time, they will never completely go away. For many patients the scar is a small sacrifice for the benefits of brachioplasty.
