The patient is a patient in her 60’s who was dissatisfied with her arm size and laxity. She underwent a brachioplasty, or arm lift. The tissue may only be reduced as much as the underlying muscles will allow. Patients with less residual arm fat have more improvement that those with more. The scar typically hides well at the lowest part of the arm.
