Upper arm lift

Some patients suffer from sagging upper arms as a result of advancing age or extreme weight fluctuations. An upper arm lift improves the shape of the arms.

Toned upper arms

In particular, significant weight fluctuations or weight loss (especially after gastric bypass surgery) cause the skin on the arms lose more firmness. Surgery to tighten the upper arms (also known as “brachioplasty”) sustainably improves the look of your arms.

In some cases, an upper arm lift also consists of two treatments: first, Dr. Colette C. Camenisch sucks out excess fat and then tightens the skin by cutting away some of the skin.
