Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Some patients may complain of fullness in the upper inner arm sometimes also known as ’bat wings’. Liposuction with or without surgical removal of the skin and fat can improve the appearance and patients self-confidence. The type surgical scar will depend on the type of brachioplasty performed and can vary from a straight line scar on the inside of the arm to an extension in the armpit. This depends on the degree of fullness in the upper arm. Some patients may also require liposuction of the upper arm at the same time for optimum results.
