Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

There are many factors that can cause sagging tissue and definition loss in your upper arms. Genetics, significant weight loss, as well as how we age can cause the skin to lose its elasticity. The plastic surgeons at UConn Health can help you if you are unhappy with loose, hanging or excess skin on your upper arms. An arm lift can shape and tone the arm by tightening the skin in those trouble areas.

An arm lift can treat:

  • Extra fat on the arm
  • Skin dimpling
  • Loose, sagging, or excess skin
