What is Addressed During an Arm Lift?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your upper arms, then you might be the perfect candidate for an arm lift. During this surgical procedure, our surgeon can tighten and contour your arms to create a slim and attractive silhouette. With modern tools and techniques, this operation is actually quite simple, and it might be exactly what you need to finally restore your confidence.

Dealing with Loose Skin

Collagen is the protein that is responsible for keeping your skin firm and flexible. When an individual grows older, their body will no longer produce an adequate supply of collagen, and that can result in skin laxity issues. Sudden weight gain and rapid weight loss can impact the appearance of your skin as well. At some point in your life, you may begin to notice loose folds of skin and excess soft tissue on your upper arms. These cosmetic issues are difficult to get rid of on your own, and that is one of the reasons why arm lifts have become very popular over the last few decades.

The Basics of an Arm Lift

The primary goal of an arm lift is to restore the appearance of a patient’s upper arms. This may be accomplished by removing excess soft tissue and tightening loose skin. If quite a bit of fat needs to be removed, then we might suggest liposuction as well. Once the procedure is complete, you can get started with your recovery and look forward to seeing results in the weeks to come.

Ideal Candidates

Even though you can do quite a bit to protect your epidermis, the outer layers of your skin are naturally going to lose their elasticity as you grow older. Many people also gain and lose quite a bit of weight over the years, and that will further stretch out the skin. Arm lift procedures are an excellent option for patients who feel as if they need to hide their arms from the public because of sagging skin. While arm lifts are very effective, you need to stick to healthy lifestyle habits if you want to keep your arms slim and toned.
