Many men and women suffer from excess and sagging skin and fat on the undersides of their upper arms. Causes can range from any combination of fluctuations in weight, heredity, aging, and loss of skin elasticity. An arm lift, also known as a Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward, Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region, reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region, and tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm.
Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.
Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms is sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat. This surgical procedure will leave a scar extending generally from the armpit to the elbow and is reserved for cases in which liposculpture alone will not suffice. Much of the problem stems from the sheer weight of the fat in a loose skin envelope, which allows excessive bowing and sagging.
In general, Arm Lift candidates include:
Adults in good health with no serious medical conditions.
Have excess or hanging skin in the upper arms that do not improve with exercise.
People who would like thinner, tighter arms even at the expense of visible scarring.
People who have maintained a stable weight for several months.
Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations.
