For many individuals past their 40s, there can be an excess amount of sagging skin that develops under the arms. This sagging skin, sometimes referred to as “bat wings,” can undermine one’s self-confidence and even cause discomfort. With a brachioplasty, or arm lift, these bat wings can be a thing of the past.
Typically, the cause of sagging skin is the general effect of the aging process on the skin tissues. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, its ability to withstand the effects of gravity. As the skin stretches, it droops and develops into unsightly sagging.
The brachioplasty is performed by surgically removing excess skin to create a slimmer, more youthful profile.
