It’s been a hot, humid summer here in the midwest, and that typically means wanting to wear sleeveless shirts and dresses. However, if you have sagging, excess skin and pockets of fat around your arms, you might not feel comfortable wearing certain clothes. Not only should you have the freedom to wear what you want, but you should also feel confident in your own body. So, why not consider an arm lift?
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin, tightens and smoothens underlying supportive tissue, and decreases localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region. Oftentimes, arm reduction surgery helps to correct drooping and sagging in the arms caused by fluctuations in weight, aging, and heredity. You may have tried to correct this problem yourself through exercise, but an arm lift may be the only option to effectively give you smoother, more shapely arms.
Candidates for arm lift surgery include:
- Adults with significant skin laxity in their upper arms
- Adults with a relatively stable weight, who are not overweight
- Adults without medical conditions that impair healing or increase the risk of surgery
- Adults who do not smoke and have a positive outlook with realistic expectations
