Everyone has an area on their body they wish they could change. Maybe it is the mom whose tummy that never went flat again after having kids or the guy whose jaw line that never quite was as pronounced as he would like. For some people, it is the jiggly upper arms that never seem to get tight and toned, even with exercise. If you plagued with saggy upper arms, why not finally get the arms you always wanted so you can wear that sleeveless dress or tank top- schedule a consultation for an arm lift.
What is an Arm Lift?
Like a tummy tuck, an arm lift is a medical cosmetic procedure where excess fat and skin are removed, then the skin is tightened to give the arm a svelte, toned looked. This is known as a Brachioplasty and is performed by cosmetic surgeons. This procedure is perfect for women who have upper arm skin that sags or jiggles more than they prefer. It is common for those who have lost a large amount of weight to have excess skin in this area, plus the problem worsens as age and gravity take their toll.
Some people only need an arm lift to remove excess skin, while others may need liposuction to remove fat from under the skin. In some cases, there may be liposuction and an arm lift procedure done at the same time. Many people with excess skin on their upper arms also have scarring from stretch marks that can be addressed by a competent cosmetic surgeon.
If you want to stop being self-conscious due to excess skin or fat on your upper arms, consider the benefits of an arm lift. It may be just the procedure you need to give you back your confidence and open up your wardrobe choices for the summer.
