Most women with very large upper arms are troubled with difficulty of buying clothes, as the sleeves are always too tight. Because they feel that their arms are not attractive, they dislike wearing short-sleeved or sleeveless garments. While many surgeons perform brachioplasty, attention to fine detail is not always a given. The incision must be carefully placed so it is not visible when the arm is at the side. Liposuction before skin excision will give the most uniform contour.
What if the skin quality is the real issue?
Cutting skin out will not improve the sun damage, crepey, or wrinkles in the skin that is left behind. Fractional laser with the Sciton profractional gives definite results, but multiple treatment sessions may be needed.
