It is frequent that after considerable weight-loss some sagginess is presented in the upper limbs.
Brachioplasty is used to contour the arm by cutting off excess tissue from the inner region of the arm. An incision is made across the arm and a smaller one on the armpit. General anesthesia is used and the procedure can last between 3 and 4 hours.
It is recommended to keep a steady weigh in order to avoid sudden weight changes.
