An arm lift (also known as brachioplasty) tightens loose skin under the arm that creates what many call a "bat wing" appearance. It's frequently performed on those who have sagging skin due to massive loss weight or natural aging. The procedure is often performed in conjunction with liposuction to get rid of excess fat.
