Skin underneath the arms can droop downward as result of the skin’s losing its elasticity. This sagging skin under the arm can be damaging to self confidence. Since the year 2000, the arm lift has surged in popularity as women have paid closer attention to the look of their arms.

A poll by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons suggests that sleeveless fashion trends and celebrities with toned arms like Jennifer Lopez have been a big influence in the surge in popularity. The arm lift, also known as the brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the arms for a level of toning and slimming that may not be achieved by dieting or exercise.
