What You Need to Know About Arm Lift Surgery

Published on: April 8, 2018

Do you have droopy upper arms or “bat wings?” Excess skin and fat on the upper arms can be embarrassing, impacting how your clothes fit and limiting your options in your wardrobe. Saggy upper arms are common as you get older, especially for those that have had major fluctuations in their weight over the years. An arm lift cosmetic procedure can tighten and slim upper arms, giving you more confidence in your appearance.

What is Arm Lift Surgery?

The upper arms are a common problem area, especially for women. Fat deposits can cause thicker upper arms with stretched skin that can sag as you get older. Arm lift surgery is used to reform the upper arms to a more youthful and toned appearance. The procedure is usually performed with an incision along the back or underside of the arm. Once open, liposuction or fat removal can be completed, along with removing excess skin and tissue tightening. The incision is closed, and the excess skin, tissue and fat is no longer hanging below.

For many, an arm lift surgery can have a big impact on their self-confidence. They can wear short sleeve or sleeveless apparel without worrying about exposing saggy arms. Their clothing can fit better, and they can appear more youthful. Good candidates for this surgery should be healthy, non-smokers, with excess skin or fat on their upper arms with a stable weight.

If you are interested in an arm lift surgery, contact your local board-certified plastic surgeon that performs this procedure. Many plastic surgeons offer a no-fee quote on procedures to give you an idea on how much this operation can cost.
