Many women hide their upper arms and are unwilling to wear sleeveless or short-sleeved shirts. You may feel that your upper arms are too big or that the skin hangs or is too loose. Fortunately, there are several effective techniques used to reduce the size of the upper arms and to get rid of excess skin. The technical name for the arm reduction procedure is called a brachioplasty.
Brachioplasty is often used in conjunction with liposuction to create a more attractive upper arm. For those people considered proper candidates after evaluation, these surgical techniques can be used to contour the arms, giving them a more appealing look. The best candidates are patients that have excessively loose skin in the upper arm or a combination of loose skin and extra fatty tissue making the upper arm seem disproportionate to the rest of the body.
When women have excess fatty tissue on the part of the upper arm, which hangs when the arm is raised, liposuction alone can sometimes be done if the skin is not loose.
