Some people dislike the sagging skin in the upper arm area or they dislike the thickness of their upper arms or in some cases they have both extra skin and extra fat. The basic goal is to get smaller tighter upper arms.
In some cases liposuction alone will suffice. In most cases a combination of liposuction to remove excess fat and skin excision to remove the skin is necessary. There are a variety of incision patterns that are possible but they vary depending on the amount of excess skin.
Some patients simply have sagging skin that needs to be excised.
