he surgeon makes a small incision in the arm through which he or she removes this extra skin and fat. After the healing process is complete, you can expect to have smoother, more contoured arms and a very minimal scar. Many patients choose to combine the brachioplasty with liposuction to get the best results. Different areas of the body heal scars better or worse. The upper arm (not to be confused with ­­­­ axilla) typically leaves thicker scars. Therefore, Dr. Ronan reserves this procedure for patients that have a significant amount of skin excess.
