A surefire way to banish flab long-term and tighten the skin around the upper arm is with an arm lift, or brachioplasty.
By using a combination of extra-skin removal and strategically placed sutures, your doctor may first remove any excess fat by means of liposuction; and then remove the excess skin through an incision underneath the arm that extends from the elbow to the armpit. Skin’s edges are closed together, which will result in a visible scar that stays pink for about a year.
There are also more limited variations of the procedure that allow for shorter incisions from the upper inner arm to the armpit, for patients with less skin laxity.
