What is an Arm Lift?
Aging, heredity, weight loss and other factors can all contribute to sagging skin in the upper arm. Exercise cannot typically improve the drooping skin in the upper arm area. Arm lifts are one of the most requested procedures following extreme weight loss.
An arm lift is a procedure that:
- Tightens the underlying supportive tissue, smoothing it and helping redefine the shape of the upper arm
- Reduces excess skin that sags
- Reduces areas of fat located in the upper arm area
The size of incisions depends on the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the extent of the surgery itself. Thin people may only need small incisions while those who have lost a significant amount of weight will require a large amount of fat or skin removal, so may have larger incisions. While swelling and bruising is common following the surgery, you should notice an improvement in the appearance of your arms immediately after surgery.
