Today, we all know the importance of maintaining a healthy weight for our overall health and wellbeing. Through diet, exercise and even gastric bypass surgery, many have taken charge of their health, but unfortunately for some, areas of excess skin and fat can persist.

Weight fluctuations, age and heredity can cause the upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance which cannot be corrected through exercise. For those who struggle with excess skin and fat on the underside of the upper arms, an arm lift, or brachioplasty, may help.

During an arm lift, Dr. Cashio surgically reshapes the upper arm, from the underarm region down to the elbow. This can remove localized pockets of fat and reduce excess sagging skin that droops downward. In addition, an arm lift can tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm.
