Arm lift or brachioplasty, more commonly known as arm lift surgery, is a type of plastic surgery to remove excess skin and fat from your upper arms. As part of the natural aging process, this part of your body tends to lose skin elasticity and develop stubborn fat. Diet and exercise don’t help with lax skin, and the fat in your upper arms is very difficult to eliminate. A surgical procedure to tighten the arm skin is the best solution.
In addition to aging, significant weight loss causes a flabby appearance in the upper arms. When you were carrying those extra pounds, your skin stretched to the point where it can no longer conform to the shape of your arms. Plastic surgery for your arms after weight loss restores the natural contours and helps you feel more confident about your effort to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle.
Surgery to remove excess arm skin and fat is a safe and effective way to address the concerns that you have about your upper arms. You can learn more about arm reduction surgery and other options by calling us to schedule a consultation.
