Abstract

The growing popularity of bariatric surgery has increased the number of brachioplasties performed. One of the major drawbacks of brachioplasty is the unsatisfactory appearance of the surgical scar. The author describes a short-scar brachioplasty, or minibrachioplasty, that can achieve much of the improvement of a traditional brachioplasty while concealing the scars within the confines of a short-sleeve shirt or blouse. Eight patients treated with this technique saw a significant improvement in the appearance of their upper arms.
