term is used for bat wing arms. The skin of the upper
arm is excised and repaired. The procedure is performed when extra
skin rather than fat is the underlying problem. Also, if the skin
has poor elasticity and will not contract with traditional liposculpture
then brachioplasty is indicated
Liposuction can not correct excessive looseness of the skin. It will
just make the problem worse. Although the scar is long in a brachioplasty,
this procedure will truly rejuvenate the upper arm.
