The arms represent a challenge in body contouring surgery. Deformities of the upper arms vary in presentation from minor defects to extensive skin excesses. When skin elasticity is good and fatty deposits limited, traditional forms of liposuction may be utilized. In the massive weight loss patient, the deformity often encountered is that of extensive excess skin, which will be the subject of discussion in this chapter.

Keywords: Brachioplasty, liposuction, bicipital groove.
