Like many other cosmetic surgical procedures, brachioplasty (upper arm lift surgery) grew in 2014 compared to the previous year. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 16,205 upper arm lifts were performed in 2014, a 3 percent increase from 2013. Upper arm lift surgery has risen a staggering 4,694 percent in 2014 versus 2000. In 2000, just 338 brachioplasty procedures were reported to ASPS.
Sexy, toned upper arms are in. Many women want to feel confident and beautiful wearing sleeveless blouses and summertime exercise tops. But the sagging arm skin that results from aging, the effects of gravity, and weight fluctuations does not typically shrink in response to exercise and dieting. Instead, surgical methods are often necessary to remove the skin. Depending on your goals, an upper arm lift:
- Removes sagging, excess upper arm skin
- Restores a better defined upper arm contour and shape
- Removes extra fatty bulges in the upper arms
