Arm reduction, or Brachioplasty, reduces excess skin and fat from the upper arm. The surgery targets the area between the underarm and the elbow, and contours the arm, resulting in smoother skin and a more toned appearance.

For many, the ideal upper arm shape (when held out to the side) would be smooth with no laxity. Arm Reduction Surgery has become increasingly popular over the last few years partly because techniques have improved but also because of the ever growing demand in people who have experienced significant weight loss.

The surgery aims to correct the flap of redundant skin and tissue seen under the upper arm. There are several techniques for Arm Reduction. The method used to perform the surgery will depend on the patient’s specific needs.
