Brachioplasty is the medical term used to describe an operation oriented toward removing excess skin and fat from the arm. The success of the surgery mostly depends on the quality of the residual scarring. The surgery can remove any amount of excess skin and fat from the arm. The incisions are planned in such a fashion that the scar ends are located on the inner aspect of the arm, so that when the patient’s arms are down, no scar is visible neither from the front or the back. This is an example of a brachioplasty performed on a patient who wanted to remove the “flabbiness” of her arms that was secondary to excess skin and fat. The quality of the scar in this patient is excellent and inconspicuous. Again, this is a very powerful surgery, allowing the surgeon to remove large amounts of skin and fat.
