Brachioplasty or Arm Lift

Aging is a natural process that leads to a gradual loss of elastic fiber in the skin which in turn appears as laxity or sagging of skin. The skin of the inner arm like inner thigh is thin and gradually stretch over time which results in sagging of skin. Sometimes weight change also leads to similar changes and localized deposition of fat. Brachioplasty or arm lift surgery removes excess skin and fat to give smooth contour to the arm. Some patients don’t have excess skin but localized deposition of fat which can be removed by liposuction. 

Callisto provides the best solution for your arm to make them a more natural and smooth look.
