In brief: Loose arms MWL

The mainstay of arm tightening after massive weight loss is a brachioplasty or arm lift.
This involves excision of the excess skin along the upper arm and axilla. This is a relatively easy procedure but the scarring often takes a little longer to mature than other body contouring sites. It may take 18-24 months.
