Changes in weight, advancing in age and even genes can cause the upper arm to have a sagging, drooping appearance. Although you may be able to strengthen and tone the underlying muscle with exercise, you may not be able to address the excess skin that has lost its elasticity.
If the undersides of your upper arms are saggy and loose because of excess skin and fat build up, an arm lift can restore your arm to its natural appearance.An arm lift procedure:
- Reduces excess skin and fat between the upper arm and the elbow
- Smooths the skin and contours of your arm
- Restores a more toned, proportionate upper arm
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical reshaping procedure that lifts the underarm region up to the elbow, reducing sagging skin and creating a toned, tightened, defined upper arm.
Candidates for this procedure are healthy adults with significant upper arm skin elasticity who maintain a stable weight and are not overweight. Candidates must also be non-smokers who do not have medical conditions that would interfere with healing.
The results of arm lift surgery will last many years, provided that you maintain your weight and general health. As you age, it is natural for the skin to lose some firmness, but the improvement of the procedure should be relatively permanent.
