If there’s one thing that you can’t stand, it’s drooping skin that hangs off of your arms with unwanted fat that really makes them sag. You’re not alone in your struggle. Whether you have recently lost a great deal of weight but your arms continue to be a problem, or you’ve toned your body but can’t seem to get your arms in shape, an arm lift could be the best solution for you.
What is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift is an outpatient procedure also known as brachioplasty. It includes the removal of extra skin and unwanted fat in your upper arms. At the same time, it also allows our plastic surgeon to go in and shape the tissue in your arms to give you smoother, thinner arms that have a more appealing shape. You won’t have to hide your arms anymore in large, baggy shirts. It’s time to show off your arms and be confident about your body once again. Sometimes, diet and working out aren’t enough to get the results that you want. Our plastic surgeon has the skills and the tools to help you mold your arms into exactly what you would like to see.
Is an Arm Lift Right for You?
An arm lift is recommended if you are in good health. It is also advised if you are not a smoker. While smoking may not exclude you from having an arm lift procedure, it does increase your risk of complications. If changes in weight, getting older or your family history have led to flabby arms, even though you are at your ideal weight, you could be a good candidate for arm lift surgery. You need to understand that excess skin is not going to go away. If you have done everything possible to tone your arms and nothing works, your only option may be an arm lift.
What to Expect with Arm Lift Surgery
The first step in any type of surgery is to provide you with some type of anesthesia, usually general. Once you are ready for the procedure to begin, our plastic surgeon can sculpt your arms and remove any excess tissue. When all is said and done, you will feel like you have a new set of arms. Finally, you can wear what you want to and not worry about that unsightly flab that has been bringing you down.
