Arm plastic surgery (brachioplasty) is the removal of excess skin and oily layer in the arm to achieve a more beautiful, firmer and firmer look on the whole arm. Loss of firmness, sagging of the armpit skin or a large amount of it is usually caused by aging processes, but it can also be affected by weight loss or heredity. Generally, strengthening the skin of the arms and improving their aesthetic appearance does not succeed in sports or a healthy diet alone. Arm plastic is often absorbed during arm plastic surgery.
It is important to know that due to the thin skin of the arms, the scars left under the plastic of the arms are more visible than in other parts of the body.
