Brachioplasty before and after pictures by Arm List specialist in Los Angeles Dr. Younai An upper arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, works by removing excess skin and fat that often hangs below the triceps. This extra tissue can make it difficult to find flattering clothing, both with sleeves and without since the skin causes flappy arms or wears tight on the sleeves. This 43-year-old woman from Alhambra CA consulted with Board-Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Younai about how she did not like her large arms because it made a lot of clothing uncomfortable or unflattering. When excess fat like this is present, liposuction may be necessary before you can undergo an arm lift. During an arm lift Dr. Younai makes an incision along the underside of your upper arm, removes excess skin, and pulls it tight to create a slimmer, more athletic contour. Making the incision in this manner makes the scar more hidden when lifting your arms or having them at your side.
