For many women, the upper arms is a real problem area. Over time or after weight loss, the underside of the upper arms can become loose and saggy (sometimes known as “bat wings.”)
Are you dealing with this issue? Read on for what may be your solution.
Tired of the jiggle?
With warm weather on the horizon, many women just aren’t comfortable breaking out their sleeveless tops and dresses because they want to hide their upper arms. And sometimes, regardless of diet and exercise, this area of the body simply is resistant to change once tone has been lost. This is particularly true for those who have lost a good amount of weight.
The good news is there is a solution. Arm lifts are becoming more and more popular among women who want to wave goodbye to upper arm flab and feel comfortable in whatever clothing they choose to wear.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the demand for am lifts has grown by leaps and bounds since 2000. And at our office, we have helped many women become confident in the appearances of their arms with an arm lift.
What is an arm lift?
A brachioplasty (arm lift) is a type of surgery that reduces fat and droopy skin in the upper arm. It also helps to tighten and smooth the arm’s supportive tissue that gives the upper arm a toned shape.
The procedure offers patients a firmer look through the removal of excess skin. For some patients, we also use liposuction for removing excess fat for an even better result.
During an arm lift, we start by making small incisions on the inside or back of the arms. We then remove fat with liposuction. And finally, excess skin is removed and the arm is stitched into place. In all, the entire procedure typically takes two to three hours and stitches can be removed within two weeks. Patients can return to work one week following surgery and exercise can be resumed in a month.
